MASON, Ohio -- It's almost that time: time for Kings Island to open for the 2017 season.

This year, patrons will get to enjoy a brand new rollercoaster -- Mystic Timbers. The wooden roller coaster will sport over 3,000 feet of track and reach speeds of over 50 mph. The ride will be located in the Rivertown area of Kings Island near White Water Canyon and the K.I. & Miami Valley Railroad.
