Kings Island has announced its new ride for 2017 - a GCI wooden coaster that should evoke comparisons with the park's classic, The Beast.
Custom designed and built for the topography of Kings Island by Great Coasters International, Mystic Timbers will be 3,265 feet in length, reach 109 feet in height and weave along steep cliffs, down ravines, cross over water and go through an extreme S-turn, among a forest of trees, at speeds up to 53 mph.
The ride will feature a total of 16 airtime hills, a mid-course tunnel and interact with parts of the Kings Island & Miami Valley Railroad and White Water Canyon attractions.
Here's an animated POV of the ride, courtesy the park:
