    Can be a bit rough depending on where you sit but it’s very intense and night rides are elite

    This is such a good ride. While the layout really is not that good at all, this ride still manages to be amazing. It provides some amazing laterals especially on that final insane double helix. Plus how can I not talk about the amazing setting. I've gotten several night rides on this, including one in the middle of a thunderstorm, and they're incredible. While this ride isn't quite as good in the day, it's still excellent. However, if you are sensitive to roughness, do not ride this on a wheel seat, especially the back row. This is an insanely rough ride. However, I think the roughness makes it feel more insane so I love it. Overall, such an incredible ride

    i got a back row night ride on the beast and it was actually very intense, i couldnt feel the trims that much, and the laterals were really good, especially in that final helix, and i love just how long this ride is, the location is beautiful, you dont even feel like ur in an amusement park, u feel like ur in the middle of nowhere lost in the woods, heck a deer walked right up to the track when i was riding, unfortunately this coaster just has so many dead spots though

    Gotta appreciate how it was built in house before CAD. Also just a really good ride in general. The helix is incredible. Overhated by a wide margin.

    An absolutely iconic wooden coaster, The Beast still packs a punch all these years later. It's very long and provides some outstanding views. It's not all that smooth, but that just adds to the whole vibe. The second drop is also absolute bonkers.

    The Beast is a ride you hear about a lot, then look at a pov and say it looks boring. The ride's layout looks boring but you really have to ride this ride to see what makes it fun. The ride is fun because of the roughness, loudness, and woodedness. I can see how people wouldn't like this ride because frankly, it's super rough and loud but if you like the feeling of craziness and insanity RIDE IT! The ride becomes 10 times better at night where you can really feel the ride roar at you. I've probably over ranked it because I love the insanity of it, you might not like it though.

    This is an AMAZING coaster! It's so iconic and I'm thankful I got to ride it. I would be devastated if they got rid of it... I got a night ride in the front and back, and you should go back because you can see even less. The helixes are intense too. The lats are CRAZY!

    I sat in both the front and the back and prefer the back. The front is more smooth and boring. The back is more jerky, intense, and fun.

    This legendary woodie is awesome. The whole ride is great. It’s a classic old wooden coaster that still holds up as one of the greatest wooden coasters out there. The ride is surprisingly smooth and has some great moments like the final helix, first drop, and second drop. It’s secluded location in the woods is legendary and it’s 7000 feet of track just keep going.

    Let me get this out of the way: at night, this feels like a really nice hike through the deep woods. I love the vibe in the dark. But when the sun shines and the flaws can't be hidden, you notice that the ride is made mostly of straight track. Half of the ride duration is devoted to climbing the two lift hills, and while the rose bowl helix is incredibly forceful and a wonderful finale to the ride, it's almost not worth waiting three minutes strapped into the ride just to experience that.

    8.6 out of 10! A lot rougher than how I remember it when teenager. Old School and a classic.

    Covered in trims, probably to stave off the worst of the roughness associated with 70's and 80's wooden coasters. As a result, the ride doesn't have any particularly forceful parts. The Beast is nonetheless one of the better surviving examples of the era; and the forest setting and duration are both excellent.

    Nice surprise! Location Masterpiece Dead spots

    Going in, I was told that The Beast was a dull, pointless and rough ride. After a 50-minute wait to ride this coaster at night, I was praying that the wait would actually be worth it — contrary to what I’d been told. I was nearly stapled by my own doing just before The Beast dispatched. Rolling around the first bend and up the first lift hill, I hoped that The Beast could deliver a legendary night ride. Inching down the first shallow drop, the train surprisingly picked up a lot of speed — and lots of roughness with it. I felt like I was flying through the woods at 100mph due to the bouncy roughness (which surprisingly worked in The Beast’s favor), even when the trims hit on multiple occasions. Was I actually riding a roller coaster at one of the largest amusement parks in America, or had I actually been transported to a national park while The Beast had me in its claws? Either way, I was shocked by how much I was enjoying this ride! It all came to a temporary halt as The Beast climbed lift hill #2. Finally, I was reentering society again as I could see Vortex, Diamondback and the iconic Eiffel Tower replica in the distance; yet, The Beast hadn’t finished toying with me already. The double helix finale is easily one of the greatest moments of any coaster; I was pinned to the side of my seat for its entirety — we dove into the tunnel, back into the woods, into the tunnel again and then out of it once more. And just as it gets really good, The Beast skids into the final brake run. My experience with The Beast at night was so much better than I expected; instead of a mundane, forceless and rough ride, I got one that I will remember for ages to come. It proved to me why this coaster stands as such a legendary ride, and that the coasters of yesterday can certainly compare to the ones of today. The Beast is my personal favorite roller coaster at Kings Island, besting Diamondback, Mystic Timbers and Banshee.

    The layout and interaction with the terrain is fun, but there is not a moment of airtime. The tunnel after the second drop I felt that my head was extremely close to the wall and could easily take my hand off if I was in the mood to lose an appendage.

    This ride is a icon of amusement parks in the United States and should be at Kings Island until the end of time. The location is perfect for a ride with this name, this ride was a Beast when it opened all the way back in 1979. The lateral-G forces on the ride are some of the best out of any non-Wild Mouse coaster. Also make sure to get a night ride if you can on The Beast, it's a quintessential experience any coaster enthusiast needs to try out.

    This is a coaster that defies how it thrills its riders. With only two drops in the first half to speak of, some may find it pointless. But it's an otherworldly experience. The downhill acceleration through the woods at top speed is one of the few times I've been terrified on a roller coaster. The coaster is so long, it takes a second lift hill just to do the finale: an inclosed, enormous double helix. The wooden feel of the coaster adds to the sense of speed, danger, and terror. I'm extremely happy I'm able to appreciate this coaster, as it's my #1 wood coaster, and the most thrilling ride I've ever been on.

    One of the most pointless coasters I have ever ridden. Boring, dissappointing and just plain meh. Ride it for the credit and maybe at night but that's it.
