Beast Backwards?!?!?!

Wednesday, April 18, 2001 8:38 AM
I just thought that what if they ran The Beast backwards! Like at SFMM they run one of their coasters backwrds(I forget which) for Fright Fest. I thought that would be really unique if PKI did that for The Beast. What do you think?

You can't run and you cna't hide...the beasts at PKI

Dave with the dissenting opinion:

I do not think Beast would be good backwards. The reason is that the Beast is chock full of visual effects that rely on the rider facing forwards. (4 tunnel entrances in particular, two at rather odd angles that make the noblest rides duck at times.)

What they could do to the Beast to INCLUDE it is to make use the rides low spots:

1) Mid course brake shed
2) The long run alog the ground between tunnel two and lift 2
3) The final brake run

I mean surely we could have a few visual thematic elements placed alongside the lower riding portions of the ride to instill a real sense of fright of being attacked by the Beast.

But my BIGGEST Fright Fest suggestion is making the queue line back to White Water Canyon a haunted trail. When the riders get to the station just U-turn them back down the exit ramp. Thats a LONG way out and back to scare the crud out of someone.

My other suggestion, and I do not know if haunted houses have to be ADA accessible, is the 50' deck on the Eiffel Tower. I recall the biggest problem with Tower Terror is the capacity getting people up and down in the elevator. If we move the haunted house to the 50' deck they would have a lot more 'scare footage' to deal with, and the stairs up form a built in queue area.

Elvira in the Ijerks theatre would be good too, and I know we can do something with the Flight of Fear building, both the queue area and ride are 'dying' to be used.

The Antique Car rides could take lessons from Knoebels.

Haunted Train Ride

I know Waterworks is closed but I wonder if the waterpark could be used as well for scare zones or haunted mazes.

The Beast is perfect. I wouldn't mess with it.
Also, i think its a bit to intense for it to be run backward.

Don't touch the watch.
