    Thanks for the shout-out and the great post. It’s crazy to see the history of connections and how much has changed and stayed the same.

    You missed how John Allen met with Kings Island’s engineers, as they tried to lure him out of retirement again to make the Beast. Allen told KI, “you don’t need me”, and he proceeded to write all the formulas needed on the back of some napkins. They went on to create the Beast with his knowledge.

    Also, the Beast uses PTC trains.

    Wow. Nice article – it really shows how refined building wooden coasters are and how you need to have that lineage to understand how to build great rides.
