Hello RMC Straight-airhill heaven! Kings Dominion's Twisted Timbers

News

Twisted Timbers announced at Kings Dominion!

Kings Dominion, VA

First thought's: RMC's straight airhills are awesome, and this thing has the most out of any other RMC, I'm excited! 3 in a ROW!

On the outskirts of Candy Apple Grove sits the remains of the once thriving Hanover Hill Orchard. No one can say exactly what happened that day back in 1950. What destroyed half of the harvest in a matter of seconds? What shook the ground, turned over tractors, shattered glass and nearly peeled the siding off the warehouse, all without warning...all without a cloud in the sky? Strictly “off limits” for decades, this land of local legend is finally open to the public! You are invited to experience Twisted Timbers, an exclusive tour of the now famed Hanover Hill Orchard. Take a ride through previously forbidden grounds where you’ll experience the unexplainable and see evidence preserved from that fateful day. Hold on tight because this is a tour with the twist. This is Twisted Timbers.



Steel and wood combine forces to bring you our newest rollercoaster – Twisted Timbers. This hybrid coaster is the first of its kind in the mid-Atlantic and uses the latest technology to combine wood supports and steel track to give riders an experience that is impossible on a traditional wooden coaster.
Twisted Timbers sits at the edge of Candy Apple Grove and gives riders a one-of-a-kind experience. Plummet down a 109-foot-tall barrel roll drop that sends you twisting across 3,351 feet of track with two more inversions and 20 airtime hills at speeds of 54 miles per hour. Hold on tight, because this is a ride with a twist… this is Twisted Timbers. -kingsdominion.com

This ride looks awesome. It's always exciting to see RMC use supports from an older coaster and create something amazing, and I have to say this coaster follows the layout of the old Hurler closer than any other RMC transformation follows its old man.



Straight airhills are my favorite element, and this baby has 3 straight! This is going to be totally awesome! AWESOME!

That drop - Kentucky's Storm Chaser has my favourite drop of possibly any coaster worldwide. From the back it is so disorienting and just insane, so this drop will also be crazy and incredible.

How about those lateral forces everywhere? We'll have to wait and see about those because it will definitely feel faster with them, and RMC has been throwing them into their newer rides lately, we'll just have to wait and see if they are comfortable! Even a little Drachen Fire turnaround thrown in there, nice!

This is going to be nuts!
