Mystic Timbers Construction Progress

Recommended Posts

Not Timbers construction related but does anyone know where in the park this is located? It looks like Banshee area but thats all I can guess

(My bad i had just saw this on my second account CoasterMatt Productions and as curious)

I saw on one of the parks twitter pics that there are 504 bents total on MT. I'm just curious does anyone know how many total bents were used to construct The Beast?:)

So many new photos. Can't comment on them fast enough.....Words cannot describe how excited I am for this thing. Very low to the ground means lots of speed and delicious g forces, and I think I've already stated my track record with GCI and how it's my favorite wooden manufacturer besides RMC.

 

As for my thoughts on the blueprints-interesting. From what I can gather, there will be an entrance that diverges into the the Fast Lane and a curvy segment leading to what I assume are lockers before the main queue switches. I definitely agree that the exit goes toward the train station, but I don't see any divider walls or anything to differentiate between MT and Train riders, so that should be interesting.

A total of 811 bents were stood to construct The Beast.

Thanks for sharing Don!  Just out of curiosity, how many bents are there on each side of The Racer?

Is drummermattk's photo still on Instagram? I looked for it, but couldn't find it. 

Click on the photo that I posted and it should take you to the account.

New attraction hint, maybe?

Dont think so since the hashtag says #HomeForTheHolidays . My guess is something for Winterfest.

Winter themed Haunt maze? Could be similar to Tombstone Terrortory but with a lot of improvements as it looks close to the train.

Except KIEntertainment had a picture of the building materials with hashtags saying it's not a ride and not a maze

Probably has something to do with the shed and the theming. I bet that any part of the station that isn't open is going to be covered in vines.

I would LOVE to see that.  Vines interwoven in the wood shed and below would give the station such a cool look, and would theme with the woods and Rivertown.

That is the end which connects to the shed, could just be to help control the amount of sunlight so they can keep the enclosed areas darker.

The press releases have all stated that the ride is themed to a lumber company being taken back by nature......so I'm assuming the station is going to look like the renderings, looking like a lumber company........guessing they'd put some vines on it.

There are a couple panning shots of the ride on Snapchat right now.

JW what is their snap name? I thought I added the correct one 'kingsislandpr' but i'm not showing any snaps from them. Just curious if I had the correct account or not! 

Fixed it! Had to update my snap app lol

This ride just looks too good. It looks Beast is starting to have some competition for the best wooden coaster at KI. The ride is already great but I guess the shed will be the icing on the cake.

I would like to see this as well, just to see how MT will fit in on the map.

I sent Kings Island's PR team a suggestion recently about that. I mentioned that they should have a giant wall size park map of the park similar to what Cedar Point sells for $1.00-$2.00. I want to add that to my collection.

Same. That's why is was wanting a peek at the map. I'd like to see how it fits in with everything in Rivertown. I've seen pics and thing but I prefer the map to really get a visual.
