Coaster "Article" From The Onion
I'd ride it. The kiddie coaster mentioned at the end sounds pretty appealing too...
The amusement park rises bold and stark
Kids are huddled on the beach in a mist...
If you were to ride the Beast 100 times, you're already at ~139 miles, about the halfway point between Busch Gardens and Kings Dominion from my house. It doesn't seem like a lot but, in reality, that's a lot of miles trekked considering riding the beast that many times in a season wouldn't be that hard to do. Ride the Beast that many times each year since the ride's opening and you're talking about ~4878 miles. You've already crossed the COTUS and are making your way back.
Just an interesting and fun way to look at it, in conjunction to this article.
