For what it is, The Beastie is great and it is (can't believe I am saying this) a very lovable ride. It has a soul and a big personality. Also, for a kiddie coaster, it is rather good, I actually found myself enjoying it! :lol:
But it is old, and the MACK Young Star is being raved about, so mayb eit is time to move on.
I do not care if it is a kids ride, I still like going on them :D my little sister will be devastated when she hears about this, it is the only type of coaster she will go on and the flying fish eg buffalo train style, she is now tall enough for all rollercoasters as well I for 2 will miss the beastie but yes it is outdated hopefully replaced with a new coaster she will like.
As for staff secrets I do not think they would mind to much with this one leaking out but I am sure there will be a few out there who decide to say I am no longer going now they have took that away :evil: (no this is not my own thinking I am just second guessing a few people)

This is the perfect time to utilise the well themed entrance to the tent and put a bit of life back in to Storybook land. Decent dark ride/coaster for the nippers in the Ice Show tent please!
The Beastie footprint can be used for a small childrens flat. Something a bit more hardcore than the Frog Hopper, but less scary for nippers than a Waveswinger. Any suggestions?
I would like to see a return of that ice show please :D cry little sister best theme ever played on ice/trance[/quote]
Honestly, nobody will refuse to go to AT because The Beastie is being taken away. The Corkscrew has had a much bigger impact on people, and I haven't heard of anyone who has refused to come to the park because of its removal. It's all because that AT will like to improve on their old rides, and make them better. It would have to go eventually.
Even if about 2 people decide not to come, its only a small bit of money lost.
