The Son of Beast Roller Coaster at Paramount's Kings Island, Kings Mills, Ohio

The Son Of Beast is of course the spawn of the famous Beast at Paramount's Kings Island.  You know young ones, they tend to be a little rebellious and of course the son is too and it has turned wood coasters upside down literally...it's the first modern wood coaster with a loop.  Here's all you can see from the station to prepare for the ride.

The story behind Son of Beast is that Sonny has gotten out of his crate and you have to go looking for him.  You are loaded into a perimeter patrol vehicle and are let loose to track him down.

You've got to love a coaster that has a 60 foot drop out of the station before reaching the lift.

Like I said earlier Sonny gives you some nice fun before even getting to the lift.  Here's the first curving drop.
