I love the promotional video for the beast, so classic and awesome.
The coaster itself is a real gem of the rollercoaster world and such a fun one too.

This coaster looks great and would love to ride it. Hopefully, I will at some point.

Because it's the 35th anniversary of the beast I thought I kinda bump the topic with a cleaner POV



It's still surprisingly smooth for a woodie opened in '79

That is still amazingly smooth! Just like it opened last year or something.
