    Pace Fun Ejectors

    This thing just hauls throughout its layout! Every single hill gives violent ejector air, the turns pull some great forces, and the setting is really cool! My favorite part of the ride is all of the airtime hills because you just get yanked over those hills! Overall, Mystic Timbers is one of the best-paced wooden coasters and one of the best roller coasters I've ever ridden. Despite the stats, it packs a punch!

    Theming Location Fun Too short Disappointing! Lap Bar

    Most people had told me before my visit that Mystic Timbers is the best coaster at Kings Island, forcing rides like Banshee, The Beast and Diamondback to take a backseat. However, this is definitely not the case for me. I preferred Diamondback and very surprisingly Beast over this new-for-2017 woodie. In no way is Mystic Timbers a bad coaster - I just didn’t enjoy it as much as I expected to. I think the theme of Mystic Timbers is an interesting one, to say the least. It’s started the trend of actual theming on Cedar Fair coasters, inspiring rides like Copperhead Strike, Steel Vengeance and Yukon Striker to develop backstories of their own. The “camera footage” viewing spots were a nice theming touch, as was the crashed truck parked out front. Mystic Timbers absolutely has airtime — a marketed 16 moments of it — but due to the new-generation GCI restraints, I couldn’t feel much of it. Instead of the “crazy ejector” I had heard of, I only felt borderline floater at most. Some laterals are present in the enclosed turnaround as well as the dive out of the second hill. Overall, however, Mystic Timbers doesn’t exactly make my top ten list in terms of my favorite wooden coasters. It's not exactly a long ride like its predecessor next door, with only a brisk 46 seconds from drop to brakes — which somehow feels even shorter from the rapid-fire pacing. Maybe it’s pseudo-Groot’s doing? I don’t want this review to feel like I’m bashing a good coaster however, because Mystic Timbers has very elaborate and high-quality theming as well as an enjoyable ride experience. Sadly, I never got to see aforementioned tree creature out of my 3 laps on this coaster, but I’m very sure that if Kings Island made a plushie of pseudo-Groot I would absolutely buy it!

    Airtimes Theming Fun

    A top 5 coaster in the park for sure but I still dont know if I think its better than Beast. Best theming out of any ride in the park with Flight of fear. Overall amazing airtimes and layout threw the whole ride and the precise sharp turns feel great. Also amazing how smooth it is for a wooden coaster but not smooth like a RMC Hybrid which is nice because it still keeps that wooden feeling. But overall like a said a top 5 coaster in the park and a must do when you go to Kings Island.

    This is the closest I think you can get to a fully themed wood coaster in the US. It is amazing, great backstory, great ride, great airtime. A true favorite and was the unexpected highlight of my Kings Island visit.

    This is an excellent GCI woodie. It provides some great airtime throughout a very fun ride through the woods. However I don't like the millennium flyer lap bars but they don't affect the ride all too much. Overall a very good ride

    Airtimes Pace Layout

    a GCI with airtime? It’s more likely than you think. Great layout, great for the parks lineup, and great fun. Also the shed isn’t THAT bad, come on guys.

    Nice surprise! Pace Intensity

    Awesome GCI. It keeps an excellent sense of speed throughout and has a great layout. It's also very intense. The first drop is very surprising at it stops for a moment then throws you down. A must ride at KI. They have some of the best woodies around.

    Smoothest wooden coaster I've been on. Does not let up once you leave the lift hill, with plentiful airtime and quick laterals throughout.

    Outstanding airtime hills and pacing. One of the best if not the best GCI out there.

    Airtimes Intensity Smoothness

    Easily my favorite GCI. I love everything about this ride. The entrance plaza is beautiful with one of the coolest logos for a coaster there is on the sign and the truck right up front. The first drop is great and then the rest of the ride is pure intense ejector airtime. The out and back layout is awesome and I love flying through the woods while being thrown out of my seat. The shed is also a fun addition much better then a normal break run. Mystic Timbers is an elite wooden coaster.

    Pace Masterpiece Intensity

    From the dip out of the station to the themed brake run in the shed, this ride is relentless. The theming in the queue and on the lift hill is a nice added touch, but this ride's speed, airtime, laterals, and positive forces stand alone as an intense, exhilarating ride.

    8.3 out of 10! It is fast for a little wooden, nice airtime. It needs to be a lot longer.

    The tight turns and shifting lateral Gs make for a wild ride. Decent airtime hills, and great at night.

    Airtimes Comfort Ejectors Pointless Layout

    I love Mystic. Sure the theming could be better, but layout wise is my only concern. It's just airtime hill and airtime hill, whereas if you take something like Rengade at Valleyfair or something like Gold Striker, those have superior layouts and both have better pacing.

    Airtimes Location Pace

    By far my favorite GCI wooden coaster. The airtime is strong from beginning to end, the pacing is perfect, the ride through the woods is dark and feels extremely fast, and the theming at the end is the wonderful icing on the wooden coaster masterpiece cake.
