hey, I went to King's Island a couple days ago and for all that i herd about Son of Beast being rough i have two things to say 1.)My first ride i waited in line for 1 1/2 hours. Got first car 2nd row and it was the smoothest coaster ive ever been on it was so incredibaly smooth! How can anyone say its rough? but wait theres more! 2.)I went again later waited 1 hour around dinner time so this time we got 2nd car 1st row and i must say it was the most BRUTAL thing i ever been on the roughness was outragous now i know why people say its rough but it depends what car you get:)but its still my fav wood coaster even though our 2nd ride was Brutal!
P.S-we complained to management after the 2nd ride and he gave us a complamentery dinner for free that did cost $91.50 for ribs!

Sounds like a winning day for you at PKI. Sonny was not open on Monday, 7-10, the only day I was able to go to PKI this year since I live in California. Over 2000 miles travled and "Son of Beast not operating today. Sorry for the inconvenience." What made it worse is that the ride ops were saying ALL DAY LONG that they were antisipating (misspelled) SOB to open "sometome later in the day." It started testing at 5:30pm and I ran over to the quickly forming line. After about 4 laps around the track the ops stated that Sonny would be only testing for the rest of the day, no riders. I was pissed since I was given false hope all throughout the day. Shame on you PKI.
Gotta ride 'em all!
