So exactly what is coming to Kings Island to create all this hype? Mystic Timbers Wooden Roller Coaster. (Yes, they still build those and they are amazing and REALLY SMOOTH!) Themed to an area surrounding a lumber company becoming overrun by a mysterious medusa-like overgrowth of vines as nature reclaims its land, 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. While 53 mph may not sound fast, you have to keep in mind that this is a low to the ground rolling coaster. If this is anything similar to White Lightning in Florida (which GCI also built), it will indeed be very intense.. AND FUN!
