Construction by Beast

Sunday, October 20, 2002 2:24 PM
This has been bothering me the past 2 days and I want to know. The trees by Beast's final break run (right before the station) have been torn down and there is alot of trees missing behind Tomb Raider. So what's going on?

That has always been there. They made that when construction of TR was going on. My guess is that is where they hold the water, and electrical stuff, and anything else that didnt need to be in the building. Nothing will be going behind TR.

I saw that also. They also were doing some work on the trees out by teh actual ride kind of by teh 2nd lift hill. One other thing I wanna mention is that 4 footers for delerium have been put down in the KC site. This is new clearing, I know that for a fact.

Yea, I've seen that. The problem is that those trees shouldn't be cut down, they were there and there's nothing going on, they better have a purpose for being torn down.

I noticed that today too. The trees were between The Beast`s final brake run, the station, and the access road for Tomb Raider. Now there is just a big dirt patch with twigs and mud. I wonder what is going on. I also noticed the footers of Delirium today. They are extremly close to the Ice Scream Zone (all of them appear to within the location of the helix!) BTW, the lines at the park today were non existant with walk on lines to Face Off, Drop Zone, and The Beast (they only had two trains running on The Beast). The longest line of the day was Top Gun at ten minutes!)

On Saturday there were only 341 people in the whole park. I doubt they're building anything. If they are, they're gonna reinforce the supports so they can run it with less brakes next year.

Well a park in Ohio is getting a mirror of one of the additions Paramount's Great America is getting for 2003. Maybe PKI is that park.

Ninja, are you becoming the Arbor Day advocate? Sheesh, maybe they needed to take them down to put some wiring in.

For the 100th time, PKI is NOT getting a coaster next year. We are getting a giant frissbee from Huss, a family interactive drk ride for the kids section, and possibly waterslides for Waterworks. No coaster for 2003. Maybe a new coaster for 2004 though, but not 2003.

So what are you trying to say BEASTmaster?

No seriously. It seems like King's Island isn't as big as it was. It doesn't seem like it is getting much attention as it used to.

Hey, maybe they are not getting it for 2003 but for 2004. Don't just say "they is no way they are getting a coaster for 2003" when I never said that.

In the areas you're talking about they wouldn't build anything new.....because THE BEAST is there. I don't know about you but when I ride The Beast, I like NOT seeing other rides, most people don't. A ride won't be built in those areas. I'll say it again, they're reinforcing the supports so that you can enjoy The Beast at a higher intensity. Without most of the brakes this summer, it was tearing up the supports. They're solving the problem. Be happy :) !!!

Coasters don't equal attention. However, totally changing a parks image from a thrill park to a park for the whole family is a whole lot of attention if you ask me.

I really do not think reinforcing the supports in those areas would solve anything. There has to be a combination of things to happen to get the Beast to run Brakeless: 1. New Trains. 2. New Trains 3. Some Reinforcement along with some track reprofiling. I would love to see it but it will never happen in my opinion. I guess you could add a number 4 as well. That 4 would be for PKI to get Balls and let the Beast run how it should. One other thing to add. PKI added the brake on the first drop late season. They wouldn't go thru the trouble of doing this if they were going to reprofile it. Face it, as sad as it is (and I am really torn by this treatment of one of my all time favorite coasters) the Beast has been neutered and there will be no more offspring.

Coaster Bait....

That's why when they were put on a technition from the park, who DID do the wiring for them, told me that they were only temporary until they could fix the supports. It ain't no dippin dot stand rumor. It's the truth

What's wrong with the Beast's trains? Aren't they standard issue PTC's, or am I missing something?

341? You've got to be kidding me I work there. There was around 4,000-5,000 people. The only place supports would have to be fixed is pretty much the helix and the turns before the hill and after the hill.

Sorry I didn't make this clear. There'd NEVER be 341 people in the park. Haha. I was just trying to say it was really low and that number came out. Have you ever noticed how fast the turns get going even after the second tunnel and 3 sets of brakes?!?! It's flying. Those are other places that they are reinforcing.

Maybe its just me but I think that the brake on the hill has been moved from being higher up on that hill to lower on it. If this is true it must not be to big of a problem to move it. Im probabaly wrong but I swear it used to be higher up on the hill. Its closer to the middle now

Actually, a few years ago the lowest number of peeps in the park i've heard was 67. They closed the park 2 hours early that day. It was a VERY cold, wet day.
