The reveal solved a mystery that Kings Island has stoked on social media via hashtag since announcing the new ride in July.
Kings Island spokesman Don Helbig refused to give any hints about the contents of Mystic Timbers' shed for months.

The lack of information led some to speculate about what was inside the building.

Though Helbig stayed mum on the shed's contents, the park did share details about the roller coaster.
Mystic Timbers, which is 3,265 feet long and 109 feet at its highest point, is located near the Kings Island & Miami Valley Railroad and White Water Canyon inside the park. The ride weaves “along steep cliffs, down ravines, over water and through an extreme S-turn, among a forest of trees, at speeds of up to 53 mph,” according to Kings Island’s website. Mystic Timbers also includes 16 hills and a mid-course tunnel.
Kings Island Gold Pass season ticket holders will get the first chance to ride Mystic Timbers from 4-10 p.m. Friday during a special preview night at the park. Kings Island opens to the public for its 45th season at 10 a.m. Saturday.
