p. 792 - Camp Cedar campground to open in 2021!

It could drop and come back up . . .

 

People saying that it can't be a drop track because the track that follows is the same height should bare this in mind.

Yes the existing coasters that have drop tracks continue onto a lower piece of track, but the drop track itself always returns back to it's original position. So why can't this one do it with the train still on the track? Could also mean that the track could drop, and then be launched back up to it's original position.

 

Definitely looks to me like it will be a drop track in there. The track is at a good height for one when it enters the building. Yeh the renderings don't show room for a drop track but they are wanting to keep it secret, so the renderings may not be totally accurate.

 

And that's why i mentioned perhaps it would be some sort of turbo-drop.. The train enters the shed... some audio is overheard, maybe some effects like trees falling down, and the train drops 15 feet or so... and then launches back up... then moves forward out of there finishing the scene and then hitting the next block.

Just a thought... maybe there is a turntable in there that rotates the train so that it can run a second time backwards. It may well explain the third train, and in the announcement it was said that this ride was inspired by Beast AND Racer. Racer did have a backwards side at one point.

So you mean like turn in the shed, and then roll into the station backwards? Then load and dispatch backwards, alternating forward and backward?

If this is what you mean, I'm not sure at all, but don't trains have to be fitted to run backwards vs forwards? I thought I remembered hearing something like new trains when SF parks get NAMTAB. But I guess they could potentially, somehow design it to run both backwards and forwards if the train design is an issue.

I really doubt that'll happen... although it would be pretty cool.

The only thing better than the actual coaster announcements is laughing at the flamboyantly positive and overly negative amount of nerdism on the boards following an announcement. If you base your guess on how good a coaster this is going to be just from reading the comments, you would determine that this coaster is will be anywhere between the best and most 'magical' coaster in the world and a huge pile of crap with a terrible name.

 

I used to find it irritating, but now that it has become so predictable it's just plain entertaining.

I Will upload my pics and videos of construction so far, and announcement video, but THERE WILL BE ANOTHER ANNOUNCMENT IN AUGUST FOR SOMETHING ELSE COMING IN 2017.

 

 

Literally shocked us all last night when Don said that this was one of two things coming for 2017. But overall, This is a great addition to the park, whether you love it or hate it. I may return to the park to work next year to try to work on the ride

My guess is that either it is a medium-sized flat ride or (less likely) a Winterfest announcement. I think just about everyone here is dubious about two coasters for 2017.

We shot some 360 footage for the park this morning and they wasted no time posting it to their Facebook page:

 

Be sure to watch it on your phone (and click the HD button!)

 

Please go share it on your Facebook page as well!

When you walk into work at your ride and you see robb walk by......................... Nice to see you guys yesterday and was jealous of my friend who was sent to Beast and you guys where there

Closest I've been was going to the Banshee night-ride preview event just before it opened. He was there, but I never saw him.

Does anyone else think Mystic Timbers is very reminiscent of Verbolten?

 

I do hope it gives fantastic night rides.

 

I was thinking this, which isn't necessarily a bad thing

 

I was also thinking of Beast. I would love to see some slight modifications (banking and topper track on some of the curves for example,) but only to the extent that it could be run without the trim brakes again.

Was at the park today and planned on leaving around 4pm. Decided to make The Beast my last ride (I did the night ride thing on it last night). Rain started sprinkling while walking over to it; started coming down hard while waiting in the queue (everyone got pretty wet at that point); and by the time we were on the train, it was pouring hard. Not the brightest of ideas but a once-in-a-lifetime chance: riding The Beast in a full-on torrential rain storm. It was hilarious, painful, blinding, but everyone on the train had an absolute blast. It was basically the equivalent of a drenching water ride and I'm currently in my hotel trying to dry out my clothes with a hairdryer. Good times!

Just for some perspective on Mystic Timbers, the lift hill will be 109 feet tall, and The Beast's lift hill is 110 feet tall, and it looks pretty big when looking at it in line. I think Mystic Timbers will look MUCH bigger than people anticipate. The rendering makes it look smaller, and much of the GP are thinking of this as barely bigger than a kiddie coaster. They're in for a surprise. I can't wait for this one.

I believe that Mystic Timbers lift hill will be on land that is 5-15ft higher than Beast's lift hill. I'm not sure how the height is measured exactly, but there is a good chance that Mystic will actually look taller from a distance.
