The teasing has begun.
Cedar Fair, owner of Kings Island in Mason, Ohio, may be dropping hints that something big may soon be announced, possibly even a reborn Son of Beast. That is according to speculation by coaster enthusiast groups, the Kings Island Central Forum, and r/rollercoasters on Reddit.
The Instagram group Emotional Rollercoasters has just posted a photo of a flier its members say was put up in the past few days around the Cedar Point amusement park in Northern Ohio. "Number 5 is alive!" That's what cryptic poster says, apparently referencing the defunct Son of Beast, which was torn down in 2012 after a decade of troubles and injuries to riders. The launch building for Son of Beast (which still remains and is used for Halloween Haunt) was called "Outpost 5."
