Well the big bad beast turns 35 this year! Kings island made a logo for it's 35th Anniversary, which looks great. Post your first memories of riding the beast in the past 35 years.

I first visited KI in 2003, I loved it. After 2005 I was hooked on going to Cedar Point. Now 2013 I have rediscovered Kings island and made my first trip back since 2005. Long Live Kings Island .

I remember Q-102 FM giving away tickets to be one of the first riders on The Beast. My freinds and I listened to that station for a week trying to win. The closest we ever got to getting through was when the phone on the other end started ringing. Suddenly DJ Mark Sebastion's voice was on the other end saying "Q-102..." then the call got cut off. Sooooo frustraiting.

I rode it for the first time with my cousin in 1979. He has since passed. The line started on international street and went past the tower, past the pond (Diamondbacks current splashdown) to the entrance. It was so smooth the first year. Good times!
