Like Son, like father? Not quite. I downgrade The Beast for quite different reasons than the ones that land Son of Beast in the second spot. The Beast frequently shows up on coaster fans' top-10 lists; some are rabid about their affection for the classic ride. There's no denying it's one of the world's most famous wooden roller coasters. Heck, noted kid-lit author R.L. Stine even wrote a book about it. But this coaster fan thinks The Beast at Kings Island is the single most overrated coaster on the continent. Read why in my coaster review of The Beast.
