Shivering Timbers is a wooden roller coaster located at Michigan's Adventure in Muskegon, Michigan, USA. The ride was built by Custom Coasters International and the trains were supplied by Philadelphia Toboggan Coasters.
For the 2017 season, the trick track located after the second double-up was removed and replaced with a small airtime hill.
The ride starts with a left turn out of the station and on to the 122 foot lift hill. At the base of the lift hill, the train reaches its maximum speed of 57 mph. Following the lift hill are two camelback hills, the first being 100 feet tall, and the second being 95 feet tall. In these hills, riders experience "ejector air-time." The train then jumps a bunny hop and another camelback hill and a double-up hill, before turning around for the second half of its course. After the turnaround, the train hits another bunny hop and another double-up hill. After the double-up hill a small airtime hill and five bunny hop hills follow. After the last hill there is an on-ride photo camera and the ride's finale, a 630 degree helix, in which riders experience lateral g-force. After the helix, the train slides on to the final brake run and turns 90 degrees back into the station.
Since Shivering Timbers opened, it has been among the best wooden roller coasters in the world.
