Kansas City, MO
The iconic Timber Wolf roller coaster has reopened at Worlds of Fun with a new track layout. After months of construction and major renovations, the thrill ride now features a new finale that sends riders nearly sideways through an intense 70-degree banked turn.
Timber Wolf's new twisted ending is one of many enhancements the classic wooden roller coaster has received since 2014. Worlds of Fun has now re-engineered approximately 50-percent of the ride's original track, from the first 100-foot drop through the new turn. Investments on the coaster are expected to continue through 2021.
"Since its debut in 1989, Timber Wolf has been a park icon and a long-time staple of Kansas City," said Tony Carovillano, general manager of Worlds of Fun. "These investments ensure the ride continues to deliver an action-packed experience to a new generation of thrill seekers, and the new high-speed finale definitely gives guests a new reason to fall in love with the ride."
