MASON, Ohio, Oct. 9 (UPI) -- An Ohio theme park said it is offering plaques bearing a piece of track from a retired roller coaster for $99.99.

Kings Island in Mason said the limited edition plaques bearing track pieces from the Son of Beast, which opened in 2000, are now available for $99.99 while pieces of the wood structure are being sold for $49.99 and structural bolts can be purchased for $24.99, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported Tuesday.

Son of Beast, which was billed as the world's only looping wooden coaster, was shuttered after multiple accidents, repairs and lawsuits. Crews began dismantling the $10 million ride last month.

Park officials said they have not yet decided what to do with the 12 acres of land formerly occupied by Son of Beast.
