SOB blew down in a wind storm during construction. They rebuilt and finished it; a mistake in my opinion.  It had a lot of problems and was finally torn down, long overdue.

I've rode Son of Beast both with and without the loop. Riding it was like getting shook up in a paint mixer at a hardware store. The loop version was nicer because the loop was metal and going around it was about a second of smoothness. It gave you a little bit of a break from getting shaken. I wonder if the Rocky Mountain Construction make overs of wooden coasters makes Kings Island kind of wish they had not torn down Son of Beast.
