|The Beast in 2021|
|Capacity||20 per cycle|
The Beast is a Frisbee built by Dutch manufacturer KMG currently located at Playland in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. It opened as the largest pendulum ride in Canada. It has four rows of five seats, two facing inward and two facing outward. Its arm can swing 120 degrees in each direction and has a swing height of more than 125 feet. The ride has over 5 g-forces.
In July 2017, the PNE temporarily shut down The Beast after a KMG-manufactured Frisbee known as "Fire Ball" broke apart at the Ohio State Fair, leading to one death and seven injuries. The Beast also shut down on August 12, 2019, after the ride malfunctioned, making grinding sounds and spewing oil onto the riders. The ride reopened the same month, after a broken part was replaced.
