History[edit | edit source]
Mystic Timbers was announced on July 28, 2016. While the layout of the ride was revealed, the final enclosed element of the ride was kept a secret until the ride's opening day in April 2017.
On September 9, 2017, Mystic Timbers was voted the Best New Ride of 2017 in the Golden Ticket Awards.

Theme[edit | edit source]
Mystic Timbers is located in the Rivertown themed area of Kings Island. Just before the ride ends, guests go into a themed building. The theatrical element was also hinted at by Kings Island's PR team, who used the hashtag "WhatsInTheShed" to market the ride. The shed was later revealed to be a special effects show.
There is a single tunnel along the course of the ride.
