Kings Island offering Beast roller coaster tours

MASON, OH (FOX19) -

Kings Island is offering the chance to get an up close and personal look at the longest wooden roller coaster in the world - And we don't mean while riding it!

Behind-the-scenes tours of the Beast roller coaster will be offered August 1-24 as part of the fourth annual Kings Island for the Cure campaign.

Participants will learn interesting tidbits about the ride during the tour, such as the Beast was completely designed and built by Kings Island personnel, and how the original design was changed so many times the final product looked nothing like the one envisioned when the project began!

Tickets for the 30-minute tour are $25 when purchased in advance at visitkingsisland.com. Tour tickets can also be purchased at the park for $30.

All proceeds from the tour go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure Greater Cincinnati. Since 2010, the Kings Island for the Cure campaign has raised nearly $600,000 in the fight against breast cancer.

Park admission is required to take the Beast tour.

    LMPD and the Ferguson effect

    Friday, February 24 2017 11:34 PM EST2017-02-25 04:34:33 GMT

    For the past few years, officer involved shootings have led to unprecedented protests. Backlash and violence at times have been so severe, some police said it made them hesitate or even avoid some actions on the job. It's called the Ferguson effect - a reference to the Missouri town where an officer shot Michael Brown in 2014.
