Pieces of Kings Island coaster for sale

Kings Island amusement park is selling off pieces of a trouble roller coaster that is now being torn down.

Plaques with a piece of track from the Son of Beast coaster are for sale for $99.99. Pieces of the wood structure are being 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. It closed for nearly a year for reconstruction after a 2006 accident injured more than two dozen people. It closed again after a woman reported being hurt in 2009. Park officials considered options, then decided to give up on the ride.

Crews began demolishing it last month.
