Looks like the “Son of Beast” banged up yet another passenger, causing King’s Island to voluntarily shut the ride down until the issue is resolved. According to this Hamilton Journal News article, this isn’t the first time that there have been complaints from thrill seekers about the rough ride, nor is it the first time that someone has complained of injury. For those that love the adrenaline rush of the wooden coaster, the ride’s closure may have you putting off that King’s Island visit you were planning. What to do instead? Well, of course we’ve got some resources for you to check out that will get you outdoors and living life to the extreme this summer!
