Design

Elements

Twisted Timbers has three inversions, three overbanked turns and twenty moments of airtime.

Ride experience

The train leaves the station by making a right turn and climbs the 111 foot tall chain lift hill. At the top, riders hit a right turn and flip into a 109 foot tall barrel roll downdrop. They reach a max speed of 54 mph upon touching down the ground. The train rolls through a small airtime hill and an over-banked curve. After going through three hills, riders go through a cutback. Then, the train goes through some smaller airtime hills. Riders move through a right turn and a zero-g roll. This is followed by a right turn and several airtime hills. The train then hits the final brake run and riders return to the station.

Trains

6 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows, for a total of 24 riders per train.
