posted by on

Track work on the new Mystic Timbers roller coaster has been completed with overall construction of the 3,265-foot wooden roller coater nearing hte end. To build Mystic Timbers, it took work crews a total of 204 days from the standing of the first bent, 330,000 board feet of southern yellow pine lumber, 30,000 pounds of nails, 88,000 bolts and washers and 5,500 cubic yards of concrete for the foundation.

The cars that will comprise the three trains on Mystic TImbers have arrived on property with the initial series of test runs ready to begin.

Ride technicians will send Mystic TImbers trains through a series of daily operational, mechanical and electric tests and the Ohio Department of Agriculture will be out to thoroughly inspect and commission the ride before guests will be permitted to ride.

Mystic Timbers will make its highly anticipated public debut April 15, when Kings Island opens for its 45th anniversary season.
