The last video is a 360* view of the three sheds.

 

If that rendering is correct, then there is no way the surprise is a drop track, since the shed is one story, starting at the level of the track. The rendering may not be correct, though.

I think verboltens drop track is like 15 ft? I still think its possible.

Enjoy a cold one Pour one out for your homies Bam! You just bought two.

I think you're missing Just a few syllables here To write a haiku

At the risk of veering off topic, people are just incredibly selective in what causes of death they choose to care about. People only care if it's high-profile, tragic accident, something new and scar

I'm a little dissapointed about Mystic Timbers. Expecting something like Gold Striker, not Prowler

You're 15 so we understand.

I'm a bit disappointed, not just with NoLimits 2 animation but the coaster itself

You're 14 so we understand.

Yes, because assuming that the only reason people might be disappointed in a new roller coaster's layout is because they're teenagers is so mature.

People realize drop track could potentially drop then rise back to it's original position, right? Would just be a little more heavy duty with the full weight of the train.

 

But it's probably just a show scene. Loved the Adventure Express 2.0 comments

Thank you for being real about this.

Even though I'm not too keen of the name, Mystic Timbers looks like an amazing wooden coaster! The best part about it is that there will be 16 hills of airtime! It is definitely a much-needed addition to Kings Island that will be using the terrain of the park.

Well, its the culmination of the reason I personally feel for younger people to be disappointed. At that age I wanted "bigger faster" but as I got older I learned that some of the best coasters I would consider the best, would have not been considered the best when I was their age. At that age, its kinda hard to appreciate some coasters that that age group takes for granted.

A Dark section??

Perhaps something to do with a Kings Island mobile game, like the battle for CP mobile game. I can see it having a tie-in with something of the sort. Especially since CF keeps pushing "high-tech trills", such as CGA's Plants vs. Zombies and all the VR coasters. Or could it be some other form of "high-tech" thrills we've yet to see from CF?

Drop track would be nice, but I'm not holding my breath.

 

Now for critique on the ride itself.

 

Looks like it will deliver lots of quick pops of airtime, and hopefully some classic wooden lats. The coaster also seems to keep a steady pace throughout. It doesn't let up for a second. It's a shorter, but wilder & smoother version of Beast with some scenic fly-bys. Mystic Timbers looks like an all-around enjoyable coaster. Kings Island is definitely on my bucket list next year.

 

Only complaint(inevitable on TPR); capacity may be dismal since GCIs typically run 800 rph (give or take a few).

 

B+

Once the trees grow in this ride will be pretty cool. This is not a record breaker, but it will be good family ride. I am a little surprised that they are adding a woodie like this when they have the Beast.

 

As an aside GGI is making a big come back with three roller coasters in 2017, that we know so far!

Behemoth --> Leviathan

Intimidator --> Fury 325

 

The new Cedar Fair trend. Build a similar-yet-better version of what the guests love. Almost definite success.

I will say, we have all known this was probably a GCI from the layout leak and I'm not afraid to admit I'm a bit disappointed. ONLY because I am not the biggest fan of GCI rides. Of the 5 I've ridden (LR, Wildcat, Apocalypse, Thunderhead, Gwazi) Lightning Racer was the only one I enjoyed. The rest went from tolerable to meh to never again.

 

That said. I actually like that stats. Some of the best woodies I've ridden hover around 100 ft and 3500 ft of track. And seeing it as more of a out and back then a twister has me excited I will enjoy this one.

 

Looking forward to 2017!

 

EDIT: After reading the press release I'm glad to see this will be a 3 train ride. I was worried with no true mid-course but it looks like the shed portion will act as a mid-course. Helping capacity!

Below is KI's rendering of the Mystic Timbers. After the shed is track that is lower than the track entering the shed. I am not sure if something like this was already posted, but I'm 99% sure it's a drop track in the shed.

Easy, I'm a bit disappointed as well. KI has a massive collection of low to mid range thrill rides, and I really thought that this ride and location was going to be used for something special. Sure Banshee and Diamondback are newer, but their other thrill coasters (FoF, Firehawk, Invertigo, Vortex, Bat) are all old and busted. Who came up with Mystic Timbers? Really? Ugh.. the name of the coaster leaves me thinking WTF. I'm sure it'll be a fun ride, but I was hoping for Cedar Fair to do something unique and take a step out of the typical playblook. Not hurrying back to KI for this addition.

However, the height of the station appears very close to the height of the track entering the shed. But this is just a rendering, so maybe we shouldn't make assumptions.

 

A drop track would be GREAT, though!
