It's pretty much a yearly occurrence these days -- some amusement park is setting a new roller coaster record. Maybe it's for speed. Maybe it's for a special design feature.
But since 1979, The Beast at Kings Island in Ohio has held tightly onto the record as the world's longest wooden coaster.
The Beast apparently isn't going to rest on its laurels though. The park announced in a news release Wednesday that it's going to extend the track by 2 feet, solidifying its grip on the record by 24 inches.
