Yeah, I think Blackpool takes it with five. If I remember correctly, PKI has the most feet of wooden coaster track.

In terms of total "wood", I would say PKI.  They have 4 separate wood coasters, 5 separate wood coaster "tracks", and 6 lift hills (2 on the Beast).  Those stats probably tie them with Blackpool, but there is probably more wood on the Beast of SOB alone to rebuild all of Blackpool's woodies.

PKD claims the North American count in one of thier brochures. Rebel Yell forwards, backwards, Grizzly, GC, and Hurler.

I guess if you count racers as 2 coasters, which I don't, it'd have 5. But I don't believe record books and what-not consider racing coasters to be seperate either.

Is Beastie a Ghoster Coaster or is it something newer?

I count racers twice because both tracks(such as TR and RY) could survive without the other, know what I mean? Not to mention, riding backwards is underrated and makes it entirely a different ride anyways.

5 seems to be the magic number, although I agree PKI and PKD both hold the count, PKD's brochure says "the most wooden roller coaters in North America". Guess we're not supposed to research things too much;), oh well, they all lie a little.

Yes, PKI's Beastie is the same thing as PKD's Ghoster Coaster.

In fact, PKI's Beastie *used* to be named Ghoster Coaster (or Scooby Doo, I can never remember which one)

Beastie is original to KI and their are no copies, at least I think.  the Scooby Zoom, AKA scooby doo is now called the Taxi Jam, after Scooby's Ghoster Coaster was installed a few years ago.

No, KIBeast, the Beastie is a PTC Junior coaster, of which there are several copies/clones:
Scooby Doo's Ghoster Coaster @ Carowinds
Scooby Doo's Ghoster Coaster @ PKD
Scooby's Gasping Ghoster Coaster @ Canada's Wonderland
Lil' Dipper @ KiddieLand (IL)
And I'm sure there are/were others.

Also, the Beastie WAS called Scooby Doo until the Beast was built, then it's name was changed.  The Scooby Doo coaster at PKD is, like 2Hostyl said, the exact same as the Beastie.  Here are some pics:

Although, while the Lil' Dipper is a Jr. PTC, it's not a clone of the others.  It's shorter in both length and height.  I think it was more of a predecessor of the later built Jr. coasters.
