During the 2017 spring season, Kings Island, an amusement park located just outside Cincinnati, Ohio, opened its newest roller coaster: Mystic Timbers. As the park’s fourth wooden roller coaster, Mystic Timbers helped make Kings Island the amusement park with the most wooden roller coasters in the world.
The backstory of the coaster involves mysterious occurrences that shut down the nearby Miami River Lumber Company. In addition to its lumber factory theming, Mystic Timbers also has some automotive influences.
The ride vehicles used by Mystic Timbers resemble a Chevrolet C-10/GMC 1000 Series pickup truck. There’s even a GMC truck located right outside the ride’s queue. Kings Island didn’t receive a new roller coaster for the 2018 season. However, its sister park Kings Dominion, which is located in Doswell, Virginia, did.
