  1. One idea of many, many ideas surely to come. Cutaway of my OLED concept. Something like this. ..."ish." I love that they chose the old mid-60's Baby-Blue Chevy for the concept! Original Shed image can be found here.

  5. Can I just say how cool but scary the animation at the beginning of the announcement video was? https://www.facebook.com/visitkingsisland/videos/10154981184613368/ Seeing Kings Island taken over by nature was simultaneously intriguing and horrifying. I've seen pictures of abandoned parks, and I never want that to happen to Kings Island.

  7. It looks like a fun coaster! 3300 feet and 3 trains? How is that going to work? Maybe "the shed" is an elaborate way to get it to run with 3 trains without people getting bored on the brake run?

  8. Mystic Timbers fills a perfect need for Kings Island. Family Woody built by GCI, who build awesome rides. I am glad this is not another gigantic steel multi looper. KI has enough of those, instead this will fill another hole in the lineup and will give my family one more coaster to ride. We love ThunderHead and honestly this coaster has more of a feel to something that DollyWood would get and not KI, so for that I am even more excited. Also how Great was it to see KIC's very own PKI Punk last night talking about Mystic Timbers? Now he will play a huge role in designing and building a

  9. This seems unsatisfying to me. On more than one occasion, many of us tried to explain to the community here that, despite presenting himself as such, GavPenn was not an insider. (And GavPenn, you must admit – you did WAY more than just speculate and guess and have fun with us. You 100% purported yourself as an insider. "...I'll give you a hint..." "...that's all I'll say..." "You'll see..." "Just wait until the announcement..." etc. etc.) Every time you popped into this thread, it was as a know-it-all lording his inside information over us, "gifting" us with little hints and tips about what th

  15. Mystic Timbers is by-far the best addition that the park could've possibly made, and they know it. For many a year, even quite some time before many of you were around, I could be quoted in person or on this site as saying that Kings Island has always had one of the top wooden coaster lineups of any park, but they were still lacking. A prime example of a park with an excellent wooden roller coaster lineup, as I've frequently mentioned, is Six Flags Over Mid America. For a bit now, theirs was second to none. This GCI wooden coaster really fills one of the stray gaps in Kings Island's wo

  17. I haven't posted in years but one thing I hear all the time is many of the rides at Kings Island have no theme. Well this goes to show the park is listening. This has a theme to it. I don't have a link to it right now but there is a video on the official Web page that shows the coaster trains, they will be themed to the truck Kings Island has been showing. This looks like a solid coaster that has been well planned out. I'm sure whatever is in the shed will enhance the ride.

  18. So the major bombshell tonight was that it was the FIRST of TWO major announcements this summer. A second announcement is coming in mid-August, and AFAIK, we have zero hints so far. That is, unless some of the tweets and other social media posts from the park that we couldn't figure out how they related to what we now know as Mystic Timbers instead have something to do with this second announcement. Anyway, just when you thought decoding was over for the year, it's BONUS ROUND TIME! To copy some of the guidelines over from this year's first decoding thread: Finally, please note this

  19. My 2 cents on the announced coaster. I am glad to see them expanding without removing anything (for now). The fact that they have wooded land to use and are using it to me is a plus. That is one nice thing about The Beast that I like. That feeling of almost leaving the rest of the park behind in a mad rush through the woods. So, if they can pull this off, it will be a good thing (maybe the real Beastie?) The POV did seem a little underwhelming to me, but I will hold off judgement until I get a couple of rides in. Does it seem like they are keeping up with the nearby parks with

  21. Exactly the sort of thing I've been waiting for from Kings Island. The thing that makes our park different from Cedar Point. You'd never see Cedar Point attempt this: A mid-sized thrilling coaster that's billed as an "adventure." It sounds as if we'll see a semblance of a storyline here, and it even seems like the park is committed to preserving as much of the forest as possible. I love the tease of the not-so-secret secret element, and sincerely have said elsewhere on this site that this "sort" of ride would be my absolute ideal for Kings Island. A perfect level of theming for a seasonal

  22. ^ Red text hurts my eyes. Nobody's opinion is invalid, though. You're happy this ride is what it is, others are not. Neither are wrong in wanting what they want.

  23. I'm guessing the Shed is going to have the mascot/villian(Medusa figure) of the ride in there, probably with some screens showing vines growing and covering the room before quickly escaping back into the station. And for the second announcement I'm guessing we're getting some kind of Dark Ride(Plants Vs. Zombies) or a Flat in The Crypt building. I think 2017 will be a very successful year for Kings Island. And to all the bummed out Giga Fanboys, this ride is probably here to tide you over until we get our Giga, and to bring in some extra money for it. A few years we will have our

  26. That image reminds me of when the flying Ford Anglia gets caught up in the Whomping Willow in Harry Potter for some reason. Actually, these baby blue trains have been making me think of that all along subconsciously, I think.

  27. This will be a perfect transitioning coaster. I was 99% sure it was going to be an RMC but understand why they went with GCI. It wouldn't be right to throw another extreme coaster directly next to PS. I know that Diamondback is practically inside PS but another over the top coaster would seem a bit much. Maybe the name will grow on me(pun intended) but seems kind of "drawn out of a hat." You already know that I'll be a first rider. Looking forward to those other announcements! I also had the chance to meet a few of you, Zayzayd13 and BeautyandTheBeast to be specific. It was nice to experienc

  28. Some people were even disappointed with the addition of Banshee and Diamondback. You have to wait and see. Use your imagination. Actually surprised that I was somewhat close on my guess. Anyways the ride looks like what would happen if The Beast and The Racer had a baby. AKA it probably will be a very fun ride especially at night. Still confused like the rest of you on what Greg meant by there being two major announcements for 2017. Also, does this mean we have to start a decoding episode 2.5 topic for #WhatsInTheShed? lol The GCI guy said they used Racer and Beast as inspi

  31. MASON, Ohio – Construction is underway on a new wooden roller coaster adventure for visitors to Kings Island. Themed to an area surrounding a lumber company becoming overrun by a mysterious medusa-like overgrowth of vines as nature reclaims its land, Mystic Timbers will be 3,265 feet in length, reach 109 feet in height and weave along steep cliffs, down ravines, cross over water and go through an extreme S-turn, among a forest of trees, at speeds up to 53 mph. The ride will feature a total of 16 airtime hills, a mid-course tunnel and interact with parts of the Kings Island & Miami

  32. The contents of the shed will remain a secret until the opening of the coaster, however, Greg did say something about making every ride a little different. Also.... Come mid-August, there will be a finalization of additional capital improvements that will be announced later.... My guess... Something is going into the big box too!!!

Royal Fountains restoration (I miss the lights); 3. Symphonic music on International Street (I'll keep "harping" on this)... ; 4. Return of the Coney Mall arch; 5. Another Brady visit

  36. Went to the park for the announcement yesterday and got to see the Christmas in July stuff on International Street. I know I drive this point into the ground nonstop but... the instrumental music on International Street. It may be Christmas music, but there are parts that don't sound Christmas-y at all and remind me of the old days. Just the music alone makes International Street feel so much more majestic. PLEASE KI, change it back to instrumental PERMANENTLY. We know that the ability to play different music in various areas of the park is there. Just use it already.

  37. *Off topicness* Im wondering, how much longer will The Bat last? I know maybe not next year, but when can we expect it to be removed? That space could be used for the Giga we all think were getting down the line. The Bat is a Great ride. Very underrated. Sure it's placement is bad. But it has a good service record. There is still plenty of room for a Giga in other areas of the park if they ever decided to get one. Keep in mine a Giga is not the end all be all. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk

  38. Also another tip, riding it right at the beginning of the season next year will give a different ride then later in the year, got to let it break in. I for one am extremely happy we are getting a new coaster, and a fun action packed GCI is a perfect fit for the park.

  39. I am so very excited for this ride... I think this is exactly what Kings Island needed... it needed a good mid-sized woodie that can stack up against The Beast and Racer. Also with what Greg said..... another announcement for another "attraction" in August?? That got me genuinely curious.... Cannot wait to continue to see how this ride will take shape! Unfortunately I did not get any pictures of the construction today, but other members on here probably did... feel free to post pictures!

  42. And as people have said time and time again: Stats mean NOTHING. Read my post again. I'm not saying stats define a ride. I'm not saying Mystic Timbers won't be a good ride. I'm not saying I won't enjoy the ride. All I'm saying is that this ride really does not fill any "gaps" for Kings Island. Well sure it does! You gotta look at the ride experience. Does KI currently have a fast paced, twisty, airtime filled ride that is designed with the 48" audience in mind? Now they will! Right now you have to go to Diamondback for the airtime and, well, maybe Flight of Fear for the fast pace

  46. Not every ride needs to be the tallest, fastest, most inversions, etc. I know KI and GCI will be putting together a great ride that many people can and will enjoy. I certainly won't write off a ride based on a POV, especially a virtual POV! Let me ride it before I judge. I personally like some variety in a park, and I think this only adds to an already great lineup at KI!
