Halloween

I conquered The Beast...


Arguably the greatest wooden roller coaster ever built it unleashes its awesome power on the unsuspecting. This coaster sprawls across a densely-wooded, 35 acre site. It is topographical, so the rugged, natural terrain adds to the excitement. The Beast is the longest wooden coaster in the world at 7,400 feet (1-3/4 miles); travels at speeds approaching 70 mph and has a ride length of nearly four minutes. It features two incredible vertical drops (135 and 141 feet) and has three dark tunnels, plus a spectacular 540 degree helix turn at the end.



killed the Diamondback...


The tallest, fastest, and meanest roller coaster to ever strike Kings Island. Diamondback stands 230 feet at its highest point with a first drop of 215 feet at a 74 degree angle and snakes its way around 5,282 feet of track in excess of 80 miles per hour! The ride features 10 vertical drops overall including drops of 193, 131, 129, 110, and 106 feet, two helixes – one at 323 degrees and the other at 287 degrees – and a spectacular splashdown ending.






and evaded the police on the Backlot Stunt Coaster (formerly known as The Italian Job Stunt Track) in a Mini Cooper!


Plus about seven others....
