The Beast

Here is a view of the gradual descent after the second lift hill.  The double helix that happens after this drop is above ground, but a wooden tunnel was added over much of the turn after the ride's first season of operation.  Even though there is only one tunnel on the helix, trains enter the tunnel twice because much of the second pass through the helix is directly above the track of the first part of the turn.  The wooden tunnel is very tall to accommodate the two sections of track stacked on top of each other.
