The Beast, despite its legendary status, is a declawed, disappointing ride. And Son of Beast is notoriously brutal. But that doesn't mean Kings Island is devoid of wooden coaster goodness. Tucked into the back of the park, Racer delivers the kind of airtime- and joy-filled ride that fans associate with wooden coasters. And, it's two, two, two coasters in one. The twin tracks offer the added fun of racing trains. With its elegant, white-framed, out-and-back profile, Racer is as much fun to see as it is to ride.
