The Beastie

 

 

The Beastie was at Alton Towers from 1983 to 2010.

 
Old Review: 5

It was only a couple of years ago when I started counting my roller coasters that I started riding this type of ride. For anyone interested this was number 121. Thinking about it I think this was was operating when I first visited Alton Towers in 1990, meaning it's taken me over a decade to get round to trying it.
For non coaster counters this ride holds 2 main purposes. It's a ride for young kids who are not ready for big rides, and a ride to try as a laugh with a couple of mates.
Even as small kiddie coasters go this is a tame example. It doesn't create much sensation even for a smaller coaster. It's an O.k. ride that caters for it intended audience adequately, but it doesn't do that much else.
