Sorry, Just to give you a heads up, I should have said... The Wild Beast, not... The Beast. The Beast is a wooden roller coaster located at Kings Island in Mason, Ohio.

Wild Beast
Get set to ride the banks and jump the humps on this massive serpentine designed wooden coaster. With more than 3000 feet of track, this wildcat coaster reaches maximum speeds through a never-ending stretch of camel humps and hairpin turns.

Wild Beast is a wooden roller coaster located at Canada's Wonderland, in Vaughan, Ontario, Canada. Originally named "Wilde Beaste", it is one of the four roller coasters that debuted with the park in 1981, and is one of two wooden coasters at Canada's Wonderland modelled after a ride at Coney Island amusement park in Cincinnati, Ohio (specifically, Wildcat); the other is the Mighty Canadian Minebuster. The ride's fan curve was rebuilt in 1998.[citation needed]
The ride is a double out-and-back coaster encompassing a figure 8 design. The ride was designed by Curtis D. Summers but is based on the original Coney Island Wildcat designed by Herbert Schmeck. It was constructed in-house under the direction of Summers. The coaster was not built by PTC despite a plaque at the operator's booth and several published reports that claim it was. PTC stopped building coasters in 1979 [1]. It is likely however, that the construction crew consisted of workers who had previously built coasters for PTC. The two 28-passenger trains were supplied by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company. Unlike the PTC trains on the park's other wooden coaster these utilize a shorter 4-seat car that is designed to better negotiate turns.
Curtis D. Summers continued to use this design at other Taft-owned parks including Kings Dominion in Virginia where the coaster, which opened in 1982, is known as Grizzly. Though similar in layout, the ride was tempered when reproduced as Bush Beast at Wonderland Sydney in 1985 and at California's Great America as Grizzly in 1986.
The coaster was featured in the Fraggle Rock episode "The Thirty-Minute Work Week", where Uncle Travelling Matt used it as he thought it was a form of transportation. Puppeteer Dave Goelz has a cameo in the scene as the man next to Matt.
