Many of us are excited to get our first ride on Mystic Timbers, the new wooden roller coaster at Kings Island, and now you have the chance to be one of the very first to take a spin.
Kings Island and Cedar Fair Charities are joining with the Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation to give ride fans a chance to raise money for a great charity and be some of the first people to ride Mystic Timbers. To be held on April 13th, two days before the public will get a chance to ride, a First Rider Auction event is taking place at the park. Those interested can commit to raising at least $100 for the Foundation, and if you do you will get to attend the event. Rides will take place in order of the most amount raised, but all who meet the minimum will get to ride - and find out what is going on in that shed once and for all!
The Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation is "a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing life-changing experiences to seriously ill and physically challenged children and their families in the Cincinnati area." They have created numerous community outreach programs in the past that benefit local hospital and their patients.
Mystic Timbers features a 109 foot tall lift hill, speeds of 53 miles per hour and 3,265 feet of track in the woods. Be sure to stay up to date on the ride's progress via the official Mystic Timbers website.
