New roller coaster coming to Kings Island
Mystic Timbers to debut in the spring of 2017
 
MASON, Ohio – Construction is underway on a new wooden roller coaster adventure for visitors to Kings Island.
 
Themed to an area surrounding a lumber company becoming overrun by a mysterious medusa-like overgrowth of vines as nature reclaims its land, Mystic Timbers will be 3,265 feet in length, reach 109 feet in height and weave along steep cliffs, down ravines, cross over water and go through an extreme S-turn, among a forest of trees, at speeds up to 53 mph.
 
The ride will feature a total of 16 airtime hills, a mid-course tunnel and interact with parts of the Kings Island & Miami Valley Railroad and White Water Canyon attractions.
 
“Mystic Timbers is naturally exciting because of its setting in a densely wooded area,” Kings Island’s vice-president and general manager Greg Scheid said. “The natural rugged terrain and tunnel ensures a unique and memorable ride experience.”
 
Mystic Timbers is custom designed and built for the topography of Kings Island by Great Coasters International, Inc. (GCI) of Sunbury, Pennsylvania. Three trains will accommodate 24 passengers each (four riders per car and six cars per train) with a capacity of 1,275 riders per hour. Guests must be at least 48 inches tall to ride. The ride experience will last more than two minutes.
 
“Everyone who enjoys the fun and thrills of riding a roller coaster will want to experience this attraction,” Scheid said.
 
Mystic Timbers will debut in the spring of 2017 and become Kings Island’s 16th roller coaster and its fourth wooden.
 
With the addition of Mystic Timbers, Kings Island’s wooden roller coasters will combine to measure 18,804 feet of track, which will be the most at any amusement or theme park in the world.
 
Those who cannot wait until spring may take a virtual ride on Mystic Timbers at mystictimbers.visitkingsisland.com. Visitors of the website may also access exclusive updates and features, including virtual ride renderings, ride statistics, construction photos and a live Web cam.

Halloween Haunt strikes terror in Ohio beginning September 25
Experience evil incarnate for yourself, with haunted mazes and vile creatures, at one of the largest, most terrifying Halloween events in Ohio, Halloween Haunt at Kings Island.

Halloween Haunt will start September 25 and run every Friday and Saturday night through October 31.

A veritable playground of terror, Halloween Haunt features 11 haunted mazes, four outdoor scare zones, three live shows and more than 600 monsters lurking in the shadows along the midways, plus 20 rides including the Banshee, Beast and Diamondback roller coasters.

New this year is Blackout, an eerie dark indoor maze experience. Screams of pure panic will pierce the night as visitors become lost within the darkness and the level of fear is amplified as they become aware they are being followed by ghouls and whispered at.

Popular returning mazes include: Board to Death, CarnEvil, Cornstalkers, Delta Delta Die, Kill Mart, Madame Fatale’s Cavern of Terror, Slaughter House, Tombstone Terror-Tory, Urgent Scare and Wolf Pack.

“Blood Drums,” a percussive blood bath of rhythm and music, and “Hot Blooded,” a seductive after-life music revue, return for their fourth and sixth seasons, respectively. A new show, “Monster Rock” featuring the music of Journey, Foreigner, Bon Jovi, Aerosmith and more, rounds out the live entertainment lineup.

Halloween Haunt is a seven-hour experience from 6:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m., making it one of the longest and most intense horror nights in the country.

Tickets for Halloween Haunt are as low as $29.99 when purchased in advance online at visitkingsisland.com/haunt or the park’s mobile app, which iPhone and Android users can download for free.

Visitors looking to make the most of their night can add Fright Lane with Skeleton Key for as low as $40, which allows them to bypass waiting in line to experience each of the 11 haunted mazes. The Skeleton Key unlocks a secret extra room inside of five mazes: Delta Delta Die, Kill Mart, Madame Fatale’s Cavern of Terror, Slaughter House and Urgent Scare.

Parents, be advised. Halloween Haunt includes graphic scenes, suggestive themes and intense imagery and is intended for mature audiences; not recommended for children.
