  At one-and-a-half miles long, The Beast at Kings Island is the world'’s longest wooden roller coaster and is typically cited as one of the top coasters in the world. It opened in 1979 - and to mark its 35th anniversary and nearly 49 million rides - freelance writer Lisa Murtha put together Screeeeeeam!, an oral history of The Beast, for the June issue of Cincinnati Magazine. She joins us along with roller coaster enthusiast Carl Eichelman, who holds the record for the most rides on The Beast (he stopped counting at 4,400), to share the story of the coaster that has entertained and thrilled millions.
