The Beast is the best ride ever some say. It's celebrating its 25th anniversary. Anyway the first drop is one of the meanest drops in roller coaster history. If you want a thrill go on. If smaller then 56" I sugest that you sit on the right side of the cars and lean your head to the left as entering the double helix because you can hit your head on the side and it can make your ear hurt. But have fun it will only hurt for a few seconds.
