Don't let the lack of replies slow you down. This has been a fun series to watch grow. The only thing is that theDouble Drop should have a pond on the splashdown area.

Sorry I haven't been posting too much. Been busy with work and other things, but I haven't forgotten about the park. Anyway, back to the story.

For the 2003 season, only a small addition is added to Timberwood. Skateboards opened in the Action Plaza section of the park. But unfortunately it was overshadowed by some bad news. After 24 years of operation, PowerLoop, the park's original looping coaster, is closing after decreased ridership and growing maintenance costs. The good news was the Reed Brothers had promised to replace it the very next year. Anyway, let's look at the 2003 season at Timberwood Park.

Located at the top is the latest addition to Action Plaza, Skateboards. As we look at the expansion, Timberwood has huge plans for this area.
SCR9.BMP
Last year's addition, Michigan Whirl, is a hit with park goers.
SCR10.BMP
A trainload of riders on Coyote.
SCR11.BMP
The Raven is still a popular coaster with thrill seekers.

Get one last ride on PowerLoop, Timberwood's original looping coaster before it's gone forever.
SCR15.BMP
Of course, the original coaster, Patriot, is here to stay.

While many folks are saddened that PowerLoop is leaving, they are also excited to see what is coming next.

2004 has arrived and the Reed Brothers announced at the end of last year a replacement for PowerLoop was coming. And folks got it in the form of Flip'd Out, a Vekoma Boomerang model. Although it's a common roller coaster model, folks loved the new addition. But PowerLoop would not be the only leaving ride. Ben Reed, Jr. also announced that at the end of the 2004 season, the dark ride Dungeon (opened since 1980) and Jungle Racers (opened with the park in 1976) would close. So get your last ride in on these rides before they're gone forever.
SCR1.BMP
Timberwood received its newest coaster Flip'd Out for 2004.
SCR2.BMP
Folks are lining up for the newest ride. Guests agree that Flip'd Out is a worthy replacement for PowerLoop.
SCR3.BMP
Patriot has picked up in ridership again.
SCR4.BMP
Michigan Whirl is still really popular.
SCR5.BMP
This area of the park has grown in recent years.
SCR6.BMP
Black Cobra has steady ridership, despite not being real popular.
SCR7.BMP
Take one last ride on Dungeon. It, along with Jungle Racers, will be leaving after the 2004 season.
SCR8.BMP
Blaze! is also still popular. Although its days may be numbered after its builder, TOGO, went out of business, and parts are becoming harder to find.
SCR9.BMP
The train going around.
SCR10.BMP
Another look at Flip'd Out.
SCR11.BMP
Everyone get your rides on Dungeon and Jungle Racers before the end of the season.

2005 saw the removal of Dungeon and Jungle Racers. That plot of land is rumored to be a part of an expansion of Kidway Midway. But that would have to wait at least one more year. 2005 wasn't all losses, though, as they added a Chance Morgan ride, Chaos. Let's look in on the 2005 season at Timberwood Park.

Folks wait patiently to see what the Reed Brothers will add to that spot.

2006 has rolled around, and new for the year is Junior Dipper, a kid-sized wooden coaster for Kidway Midway. The Reed brothers also announced in the future a shopping/dining area to be built. But for right now let's look in on the 2006 season at Timberwood.
