Construction is taking shape for Mystic Timbers, which will be the 16th roller coaster at Kings Island.

Mystic Timbers will make its debut this spring, according to the amusement park. Themed to an abandoned lumber company, the 109-foot-tall wooden roller coaster will feature 16 airtime moments through wooded terrain along 3,265 feet of track at speeds up to 53 mph with a spellbinding mystery: What’s in the shed?

By the time workers complete construction on the site, they will have used approximately 330,000 board feet of southern yellow lumber; 30,000 pounds of nails; 88,000 bolts and washers and 4,500 cubic yards of concrete for the foundation.
