Mystic Timbers construction update

January 5, 2017, 3:26 PM

Kings Island just emailed some construction photos from its upcoming GCI wooden coaster, Mystic Timbers, which I just posted to our Twitter account.

From the park's release:

By the time workmen complete construction on the ride, they will have used approximately 330,00 board feet of southern yellow lumber; 30,000 pounds of nails; 88,000 bolts and washers and 5,500 cubic yards of concrete for the foundation. 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 a spellbinding mystery: What’s in the shed? Mystic Timbers will make its highly-anticipated debut this spring and will become Kings Island’s 16th roller coaster.
