MASON, Ohio (October 9, 2012)—The Kings Island amusement park in Ohio is selling off pieces of a troubled roller coaster that is now being torn down.
The park is selling plaques displaying a piece of track from the Son of Beast coaster for $99.99, pieces of the wood structure are offered for $49.99, and structural bolts for $24.99.
Billed as the world's tallest and fastest wooden coaster and with a signature loop in 2000, the ride was idled repeatedly and was closed for nearly a year for reconstruction after a 2006 accident that injured more than two-dozen people.
It closed again after a woman reported being hurt in 2009.
Park officials considered options, and then decided to give up on the ride.
Crews began demolishing it last month.
