While Mystic Timbers was a recent addition to the park, enthusiasts are still hankering for extra, and not using a tough and speedy no from King’s Island, the coaster rumors will certainly continue.
And if no longer Son of Beast II – mainly given the bad safety record for the authentic, the name may not fly – perhaps riders will locate an multiplied Adventure Express, any other coaster with a mining theme and due for an replace.
