Kings Island to Dismantle Son of Beast

The order has been made, the shuttered wooden coaster Son of Beast at Kings Island is now set for removal. We’ve known this would probably be happening pretty much since the rides closure in 2009.

Before closure, the coaster was the first to ever wooden feature an inversion, a vertical loop about halfway through the layout, but due complications it was removed in 2006. But that wasn’t the end of SOB’s troubles, as in 2009 another injury causing incident occurred, and forced the closure of the coaster.

For 3 seasons now it has been SBNO, and many hoped to see a GCI or RMC rehab of the coaster, but the decision has finally been made to demolish the record breaking wooden coaster.
