Kings Island closes Son of Beast
Written by Robert Niles
Just got a report that Kings Island has closed the Son of Beast roller coaster amid a state investigation of the ride.Tweet
A 2006 accident sent two dozen riders to the hospital, and was later found to be the result of broken timbers on the wooden coaster. The ride closed then for an extended state investigation and repairs. New trains were installed in 2007, but the ride continues to suffer a painful reputation.
Kings Island fans, what are you hearing?
