Shivering Timbers is a wooden roller coaster located at Michigan's Adventure in Muskegon, Michigan, USA. Opened in 1998, the ride was built by Custom Coasters International and the trains were supplied by Philadelphia Toboggan Coasters.
Shivering Timbers opened on May 23, 1998.
For the 2017 season, the trick track located after the second double-up was removed and replaced with a small airtime hill by Great Coasters International and Skyline Attractions.
The ride starts with a left turn out of the station and onto the 122 foot chain 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 airtime." 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 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.
2 trains with 6 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows, for a total of 24 riders per train. The trains were manufactured by Philadelphia Toboggan Coasters, Inc.
