Paramount's Kings Island

I've now been to PKI three times: once during ACE's 1994 Spring Conference (4 hours ERT on every coaster), in 2000 to ride Son of Beast on day 1 of the Coast-to-Coast Coastering trip, and a quick trip in 2002.

These are from the Coast-to-Coast Coastering trip

from near the entrance

Man that's a big lift hill

These are from my quick visit in 2002

Make a right, Dad!

It's good to be the king

Cresting the lift - it's a
cliche picture, but it's
still a fabulous view

1st drop on the Beast -
Look Ma, No Brakes!

the woods
