That only proves my point further. I think looking at either poll, Beast is over rated. But, that's just this guys opinion.

It is now. Its former roaring self deserves every bit of the accolades it gets. So again it comes back to what set of experiences a rider uses to judge a ride.

Unfortunately, some of us have only experienced it in its current form.

I agree with all three of the last 2 (times 3)! :)

P.S. That helix is an awesome thing even in current form. But it *is* the only redeeming quality of the ride (unless you enjoy the train ride thru the woods during the first 3 minutes of the ride)... ;)

You still have Zoidberg.... You ALL have Zoidberg! (V) (;,,;) (V)

Don't get me wrong, I love riding Beast. It's just a lot farther down my list. Gravity Group and GCI are filling most of my top spots.

I feel the mag break jolts, slowing down the ride, and I know it's a little annoying, but to me, there is nothing on the planet like Beast. It's my most favorite -est ride ever.

Bringing my small post full circle, I need to get to Holiday World so my mind can be changed. :)
