Growing up, my family visited Kings Island a lot in the summer. I was terrified of roller coasters for a good decade of those summertime visits after a ride on The Racer at probably-too-young-an-age.
While I rode (and liked) The Beast when I rode it on an eighth grade field trip, the rest of my classmates were obsessed with Son of Beast.
Even then it had problems, but this YouTube video's worth a watch for the full story.
I'm a sucker for theme park designs, what can I say?
