    A landmark in the world of coasters, be sure to ride in the last car for a wild ride. Nothing beats a Beast ride at night!

    This was my daughter's favorite. Had to ride the historic wooden coaster. And I have to say, it was amazing. Speeds were amazing for wooden.

    You have enough time to smoke a joint on this ride. Light it up as soon as you leave the station. Sit in the back, no one will smell what you are doing

    When it comes to wooden coasters, The Beast is the standard by which all others try to be measured! After 35 years, The Beast is unmatched, especially in the dark!

    The Beast opened on April 14, 1979 as the tallest, fastest, and longest wooden roller coaster in the world - today, it remains the longest wooden coaster and a standard for all others to meet!

    If you want to ride the back, do it early in the season after they have done some repairs to it or else you'll get some whip lash.

    As with all three-row wooden coaster trains, sit in a middle row and save your back some pain.

    This coaster is without a doubt one of he greatest thrills in the country. Ride it at night for an even creepier, more exciting effect. You will NOT regret it!

    When the Beast roller coaster opened in 1979, the trains had four benches per car and were yellow. The following year, the trains were modified to the current three bench cars and painted red.

    If you get in line before the fireworks, you can watch them from the line and still get to ride after the other rides are shut down. its only down about 20 minutes.

    Avoid it anywhere near 10pm. They shut down the ride for 40 minutes due to the fireworks.
