Kings Island (KI) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Mystic Timbers looks great!! I'm sad that we won't make it out this year. . .but we are postponing the 16 hour drive till next year so we can hit up New Mean Streak as well!

 

Anywho, the new coaster looks great. I'm glad to see the park getting a new woodie!!

I had a weird dream last night that I was riding Mystic Timbers on a train full of snarky coaster enthusiasts. The ride started strong but then got to the turn around and slowed down considerably. The whole train proceeded to boo loudly while I just started to feel sad that the ride didn't turn out very thrilling. Dream ended before I got to the shed lol.

 

Hopefully the real ride will turn out better than my dream haha. I think the it'll at least be very good. The layout doesn't look quite as good as more twisty GCIs like Thunderhead, but Timbers looks like it'll have lots of fast-paced floater airtime and a few good twisty moments. I'm not expecting to be blown away by it, but it'll be a really solid addition to Kings Island. I've been asking for a GCI coaster at KI for years and this fits the bill well. Can't wait to marathon it at Coasterstock this year.

As I just recently learned with Fun Spot Orlando's White Lightning, it is never to underestimate a GCI's Wildness factor. MT will be an amazing coaster so I only have 2 questions:

-What's in the Shed?

-How will it compare to Beast--especially at night?

As with all new rides, it will take some time for some of the surrounding vegetation to grow in thicker. As such, I don't see this delivering night rides on the scale of the beast. On the Beast, once you leave the lift hill, you no longer feel like you're in a park. That being said, this does look at least fairly secluded. It's safe to say that these night rides will not disappoint, but I'd hold off final judgment for a few years to see just how thick the surroundings will grow in. After all, the Beast's forest has almost 40 years head start.

You could've just said coaster enthusiasts. We know we're snarky.

Don't know also don't care. I would rather find out on my first ride though I don't think it will be much. I will be riding it early as a part of the first rider auction but wont spoil it for anyone.

Video of testing on KI's Twitter!!!

 

 

Couldn't figure out how to embed.

Holy crap, that train is hauling and it's only the first test run. I probably won't be making it back to Kings Island until at least 2018 but I'll certainly be looking forward to riding this.

I got a day planned to sneak a visit and try it out in late April/early May. I'm not overly excited for the coaster, but it's the best new thing going for me this year in any park, so I'll take it! Looks to be a really solid addition to the park.

 

Also, a note to future riders of Mystic Timbers: once you've experienced it, for the love of all that's holy, please don't spoil the shed for the rest that have yet to (I'm sure Media Day POV's will do that already, though).

Yeah the inevitable collective sigh of disappointment from across the enthusiast community over whats actually in the shed will be deafening once this puppy opens.

 

I'm still gunning for a bunch of animatronic gardening tools.
