Thrilling new roller coaster opens at King's Island

Be among the first to experience a new kind of adventure with unexpected thrills on one of the most highly-anticipated new attractions opening this year, Mystic Timbers!  

Themed to an abandoned lumber company, the 109-foot-tall wooden roller coaster will feature 16 airtime moments through wooded terrain along 3,265 feet of track at speeds up to 53 mph with an intriguing mystery: What’s in the shed?

Built by Pennsylvania-based Great Coasters International, construction began last summer and was completed at the end of February.  Timed perfectly, it was 38 years ago today (April 14, 1979), the world's longest wooden roller coaster - The Beast - was unleashed at King's Island. As the park prepares to open for it's 45th season, Mystic Timbers will become the park's 16th roller coaster, and the 4th made of wood.

Kings Island opens for the 2017 season this Saturday, April 15.
