I suspect I just ahd the misfortune of a bad car on 4/18/04.
I also seem to remember Beast in the glory years, back when they played music while you waited. I don't know if you would class it as Dance, Party, or what, but the crowd got into the music, and it did make for a party atmosphere on the platform. It was just good upbeat peppy music.
That and there used to be shouts and cheers and whatnot both as the train left, and as the train returned to the station. It just seems like the whole Beast 'atmosphere' is gone.

I have always felt it is about the experience. The time in the parks. Both with my family as well as by myself. To me, it is much more than coaster counts and top lists.(And friends and family shake their head at me when they ask me how many coasters I have ridden, and I tell them:"To be honest, I do not know. Somewhere in the hundreds.")
Seeing how the parks operate. The atmosphere of the park. The atmosphere of the rides. The rides themselves. Looking at the efficiency of the staff as well as always looking to see if things could be done differently. Oh, and trying to have fun, without searching or forcing it to happen.
