Save Son of Beast's loop! sign now

Paramounts Kings Island amusement park has recently announced their plans to begin a multi-million dollar renovation on the Son of Beast. The Son of Beast is the tallest and fastest wooden roller coaster in the world and is the only wooden coaster to have a loop. The Son of Beast has always had problems with roughness but a recent accident on the ride closed it for the season. The heavy trains caused parts of the supports to become damaged and formed a dangerous dip in the track which sent 27 riders to the hospital. Kings Island decided to repair the track and replace the old trains with new, lighter ones to reduce the stresses on the track. This action I have no problem with, but Kings Island also wants to remove the signature loop so the new, lighter trains can operate without the risk of the trains not having enough momentum to clear it. In my point of view, there is no reason to do this. Before the drop leading into the loop there is a short break run to control the speed of the train. If some or all of these breaks are removed, the lighter trains will move faster and clear the loop safely. This solution will not only allow the loop to stay, it will also be much cheaper. This could also be used in conjunction with lubricants on the loops wooden track to decrease friction. The state did order that Kings Island do several things to improve the ride's safety, including strengthening the wooden supports, but they did NOT order the removal of the loop. The single loop on the Son of Beast is not just any roller coaster inversion, It has a special significance to many people considering that it is one-in-a-kind, and with the loops removal, there will be nowhere in the world were you can ride a wooden coaster with a loop.
