Son of Beast Planet Coaster: Failure Park

Failure Park

Amusement park and theme park attractions are constantly changing and evolving with the times.

Parks want to use the latest technology and make sure they have the biggest and best coaster to attract thrill-seekers from far and wide.

But this doesn't always work out, and sometimes these massive new attractions end up becoming massive failures that have to be dealt with, rather than successes to celebrate.

Welcome to a new Planet Coaster series here at TPE. This series will feature Planet Coaster recreations inspired by some of the most famous, or infamous, failed rides of all time. All of these would be recreated into one park together.

For our first entry, we are looking at the failed wooden roller coaster, Son of Beast.

Be sure to look in the background of photos and videos for hints at the next entry in the series, and if you have any ideas for future attractions to feature leave them in the comments below.

Son of Beast was a coaster at King's Island from 2000 to 2009 and it was known for being the first wooden hypercoaster, having an inversion on a wooden coaster, and unfortunately for several major incidents.

This recreation is of the final operating version of the coaster, following the removal of the loop.
