Twisted Timbers is a steel hybrid roller coaster located at Kings Dominion in Doswell, Virginia, USA. It opened on March 24, 2018 and is a Rocky Mountain Construction I-Box refurbishment of Hurler, which opened in 1994 and closed in 2015.


The ride was semi-confirmed when RMC track was spotted at Kings Dominion in April 2017.[1]

More details about the ride were announced on August 16, 2017, including the name.[2]

Twisted Timbers opened to the public on March 24, 2018, three years after the closure of Hurler.[3]

In 2019, a metal detector was installed in the queue line and cell phone pouches were added to the trains.[4]



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.


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