The Beastie

Alton Towers
1983 - 2010

The Beastie was a children's roller coaster painted in bright red. This cheerful ride is sure to please the more adventurous young people around, you could even call it the children's white knuckle experience! The train does two circuits of the track, prolonging the rides duration. There are two other identical models of this coaster (Super Dragon MD31) made by Pinfari, one being the Super Dragon at Drayton Manor Park. 

The Beastie started its life in Cred Street, or Festival Park as it was known at the time. It was originally named the Mini Dragon Rollercoaster and was situated around the likes of 1001 nights and the Enterprise. In 1987 the ride was renamed to the Dragon Rollercoaster. Then, in 1992 the attraction was moved to Forbidden Valley, which was known as Thunder Valley back then. 1994 saw the rides name change to The Beastie.
