The Beast

There are three Philadelphia Toboggan Coasters, Inc. trains on the ride.  36 riders can fit in each train.  The middle row of the three-bench cars typically provides a much smoother ride than sitting in the front or back directly over the wheels.

John C. Allen, who spent decades designing coasters for PTC, was asked to build this ride, but he said that he was retired at the time and so declined the offer.  However, he did meet with a couple of Kings Island employees and gave them a lot of his designing equations and profiling specifications that were used in the development of the ride.
