 Review of Son of Beast @ Kings Island
-1 Rating Posted by: coasterboy on 4/15/2001 4:01:00 PM
It takes more than a loop to make a ghreat coaster. Too bad PKI went for the gimmicks instead of good design. This coaster is rough...very rough! Add to that all the problems theyve had and this one is the flop of 2000.

I dont no why but SOB is not as rough as it was last year and it has had no problems what so ever this season. So if you go back to PKI this year ride this coaster agine and see if your opinion changes. I am not saying you have to like SOB but at least give it one more chance.

Hmmmm, thanks for the info. Sadly, I probably wont get back to PKI this year (too many other parks that are new to me to get to) but Im interested in hearing other opinions from this years PKI visitors. Did they actually make this one rideable? Thatd be great news!

That kind of sucks that you will not be able to visit PKI this summer, but since I live in Cincy and visit PKI offten I will keep you informed at what is going on in the Park.

It seems you think all coasters have gimmicks...

It seems you think I care what you have to say...

It was a comment for everyone, not just you..."Boy"
coasterboy on 5/22/2001 4:08:59 PM said:
Then why did you direct it at me? If it was for everyone it wouldve been worded: "It seems coasterboy thinks all coasters have gimmicks" - but no, it was directed towards me. But I digress, SOB is an overgrown woodie, nothing special except for that loop. My apologies for not giving every coaster a high score no matter what I thought of it - Im sorry I cant lower myself to use such a meaningless system of rating as yours.
Sephiroth7 on 5/23/2001 5:05:00 PM said:
Meaningless system??? You gave it a one!!! That means there
was NOTHING good about SOB. That also means it was one of
the worst rides you have ever ridden!!!! I think YOU lower
the score of rides more than I give high scores. Now
according to your review system, adding a loop should give
it some points just as the Hulks launch gave Hulk 2 points
higher than the average 5. I think your review system is
whack. The only thing you said about it you didnt like
was that it was rough. Ohh poor baby!!! Did it huurrt???
Go on the kiddie coaster and stop complainin then. And the
comment was directed towards anyone who was involved in the
Hulks"gimmick" conversation.

Hehe, well at least I know I can push your buttons... It is one of the worst rides Ive ever been on. I never minded the "roughness" of Magnum, Mean Streak or even the headbanging on the old Steel Phantom - that says a ton about just how rough this one was. Im not a moron - I dont go on a ride to be abused, perhaps you do (especially if your posts are any indication) - Kiddie Coaster or SOB? Yeah, the kiddie coasters are better. However if what sob#1 said was true and they smoothed out the ugliness then its a 5. An average overgrown woodie...now Im off to give Sephroths favorite coasters all "1" ratings....

The fact that you would rather go on a kiddie coaster instead of SOB shows what kind of coaster enthusiest you are. A roller coaster is supposed to throw you around. Thats why they call them wild rides. The Cyclone made my bones crunch, but I wasnt complainin. Its one of the best damn rides in the world. And please go give all rides I like a one, It will show the rest of the site how big of a moron you are.
coasterboy on 5/24/2001 2:11:55 PM said:
Yes it does show what kind of enthusiast I am...a HUGE one. So much so that I even try to ride all the kiddie coasters at parks. Id say thats pretty dedicated to riding coasters. I still dont agree with the getting beat up on rides thing. Some of the best coasters out there (B&M) arent rough at all, in fact thats why theyre currently the most popular coaster company around - smooth speed! If youre serious about thinking getting knocked around makes a "good ride", then I have a pair of boxing gloves in the garage somewhere - for the low price of $10, Id be glad to knock you around a little. Its a great deal! Get knocked around by Coasterboy for 1/3 the price of most park admissions!!!

Boy!! You guys really dont like each other.
Paul on 5/24/2001 8:49:03 PM said:
hey calm down guys! hey has anybody rode cyclone at six flags new england its rough but fun rough and the first drop was rebuilt this year so its now likable rough.
Paul on 5/25/2001 6:07:05 PM said:
coasterboy you talked to me about being to serious look at you!!
coasterboy on 5/25/2001 7:23:57 PM said:
I never attacked anyone for their opinion in their review. I simply defend my right to whatever my opinion may be. I understand not every will like (or dislike) the same coasters I do. Its no big deal. I cant stand the way certain people around here feel the need to defend their favorite rides and attack others who dont feel the same way about them. Thats what I mean about taking it too seriously.
Paul on 5/25/2001 8:01:38 PM said:
I gues you have a point.
hyper1 on 7/5/2001 6:05:41 PM said:
how about the "son of Beast" name and story (the crate outside the station, the Perimeter surveillance trains, ect... Would that be considered "themeing" or a "gimmick"? Just curious.

Hold up coasterboy! You were the one who started this little feud. Comment 7 is where you started this. I said it seems you think all coasters have gimmmicks, which is mostly true considering you say it all the time. Those were not fighting words at all. You then said I dont care what you say. Then you called my system meaningless. The whole time you were on the offensive, not me. All I will say on a post is my opinion. I usually post on reviews that are totally different from the norm. To start conversations, not to say who is right or wrong...

Seph usually has something to say, its rarely about the attraction that is being reviewed. He has a fued with anyone with a differing opinion.
Sephiroth7 on 12/8/2001 5:18:48 PM said:
Not true at all Disney. Stop chasing me around! I started this convsersation about his use of gimmicks...
xDisney on 12/8/2001 5:31:13 PM said:
Your personal attack on coasterboy is very obvious. I have heard a lot of negative comments about SOB. There has to be something to it.
Sephiroth7 on 12/8/2001 6:30:26 PM said:
Well. If you go to our conversation about the Hulk you can see where I was coming from. I moved to this ride because he said it was a "gimmick". During this conversation we later learned that basically every ride has a gimmick. And the only reason I had a personal attack on coasterboy was he attacked me.
