Mystic Timbers roller coaster completes first test run

MASON, Ohio – The new Mystic Timbers roller coaster at Kings Island took its first test run Monday.

Park officials, engineers, technicians and construction workers stood by and watched as the 24-passenger train made its way through 3,265 feet of track.

Themed to an abandoned lumber company, Mystic Timbers will traverse 16 airtime hills through wooded terrain and over water at speeds up to 53 mph with a mystery for riders: What’s in the shed?

Mystic Timbers makes its debut when Kings Island opens for its 45th anniversary season April 15.
