Recommended Posts

Jeff Gramke, one of the two men who designed the legendary Beast roller coaster at Kings Island, has retired after 48 years of service at the 364-acre amusement and water park.

I wonder who will replace him and how this might impact the park? What are your thoughts?

It was a true honor to meet with Jeff Gramke back in October and interview him for my book. He’s a true living legend! He told me that he was retiring in the coming months, but I didn’t know exactly when. I hope he has a very happy retirement!

Tbh I saw this coming. He sorta hinted at it when the media got to tour the Orion site. He'll be missed and I wish him and his family the best as he moves onto this next chapter.

Jeff is an awesome guy, he deserves a great retirement after helping to build one of the greatest rides and parks in the world. In 2011 I took my first trip to the park and through some emails was able to meet and get a tour with Jeff. Learning all he taught me helped cement me as the enthusiast and future engineer I am today. I'm sure he will be missed greatly.

I learned a lot from that article! Though I haven't met him personally, I wish him the best in his future endeavors.
