Eight-year-old Braydan Dunkley, of Poca, West Virginia, scored the two millionth ride on the Mystic Timbers roller coaster Saturday at Kings Island.

Braydan, who was accompanied on the ride by his mother, Danielle Dunkley, was awarded a souvenir piece of wood from the ride, a Mystic Timbers tote bag, front of the line passes, complimentary blue ice cream, and tickets to return to Kings Island in the fall to experience The Great Pumpkin Fest and Halloween Haunt.

Voted “Best New Ride” in 2017 by Amusement Today, Mystic Timbers is a story-driven attraction themed to an abandoned lumber company and traverses 16 airtime hills through wooded terrain and over water along 3,265 feet of track at speeds up to 53 mph.

Kings Island is open daily through August 19. The 364-acre amusement and water park will then be open weekends August 24 through August 26 and August 31 through September 3 to complete its summer season.
