Word from the park is that y'all are invited for last rides on The Beast next weekend, Sunday, Nov. 7 at 7 p.m. in front of the Beast entrance.

I take it that's last ride for the season,right?

No. They're TAERing it down. Didn't you hear?
^I'm sorry, that was my sarcastic side showing again. ;) I'd it's for the season. :)

You guys are right, it will be the last rides on The Beast for the season. But next year will be the last year for it so they can make room for Forrest Gump's Shrimp Boat: The Rrrriiiiddddeeee! ;) *** Edited 11/1/2004 8:18:57 AM UTC by L. Kris Allen***

Kris, I bet tearing down the Beast would not result in any drop in attendance. Removal of rides never do. ;)

Even I know when to say somethings wrong.
Thanks PKI for the invitation, This has been another long standing tradition that's seemed to grow in recent years.
Granted I've almost missed last rides on Beast in recent years due to flyerfest, I guess that won't happen now.
Chuck, who thinks Beast will make a great addition to PGA.

I bet it makes a huge difference in attendance at the park that is one reason i would go to the park. The beast is a legend.

Nope, It wouldn't change things at all bottom line, They would probably loose some customers but that is offset by the huge maintence bill they have to spend every year that they will no longer have to fork out :)

Some of you have a really odd way of thanking the park for inviting you to something like this.

I was already planning on being there, but an official invitation is always nice!
Thanks for the info Jeff.

I thought it was open to everyone in the park that day.

Although I can't be there, I'd like to thank Kings Island for always making the Beast so accessible to enthusiasts. I really appreciate it!

Jeff, PKI knows that I love 'em. I thank them every time that they do something nice for us (Thank you PKI).
Whats wrong with a little laugh anyway? At least we are joking about it now. I thought that is what you wanted, you know to get over it. Unfortunately, I will never be over it. But I think that the bitterness is leaving, but I will always be sad when I walk up the serpentine path after the walk back and I don't see the...... I'm not getting into this again.
Thanks everyone at PKI for the last rides of the season on The Beast. See you all there. *** Edited 11/1/2004 9:24:19 PM UTC by L. Kris Allen***

Like Kris said, It don't take much the jab wasn't at PKI but Jeff.
Chuck, who didn't start it but probably did break TOS this time.
