It's the most we've seen of the coaster since the theme park unveiled plans and a virtual ride through back in July 2016. Kings Island started dropping hints on social media about the new wooden coaster in May 2016.

Themed to an abandoned lumber company, Mystic Timbers will traverse 16 airtime hills through wooded terrain and over water at speeds up to 53 mph with a final mystery for riders: What’s in the shed?

Mystic Timbers makes its debut when Kings Island opens for its 45th season on April 15.
