In addition to a site redesign, Kings Island Central has added over 30 photos of The Beast being constructed and media day for the Beast. They have also added a 20th Anniversary Video that aired on TV back in 1992, as well as the King Cobra point of view video from 1984.

100% astounding update. Anybody who considers themselves a KI fan should check this out, there's so much interesting material here I've never seen before. As a lifelong fan of The Beast a big thankyou to the folks that put this together!

Those are some cool looking photos of beast. I never knew that the section of track between the second and third tunnel was open. Wonder when they enclosed that section of the ride to make it seem like one long tunnel?!? Don't remember Jeff or anyone say anything about it during the beast walkback, unless I missed it.

Thats absolutely stellar! How did they come by the pics?
Note the model used for the presentation. The helix drop and hill were built to run clockwise instead of its final build going counter clockwise.

LOL King Cobra looks so smooth from the video, but the only time I rode it it was the only ride to seriously throw my glasses off my face.
