People Speculate Too Much in Kings Island Posted October 24, 2002 the last time I checked, there weren't exactly "shrubs" growing around The Beast. To the rest of the normal population, we refer to those as "Trees." And why would you remove trees from around a ride, that is set in a heavily wooded area, unless you had plans for it? You just don't tear down big old trees for nothing, other than to clean up a bit! Your wrong on that one chief. Just to the left of the brake run before you get into the station was no more than overgrown shrubbery. There were no large trees in that immediate area. Like I said, just let the park cut down some overgrown shrubbery and let that be that.
