Whatever, either way Schilke will add in banger forces, the GP will Love it, and enthusiasts will have a great time as well. Conversion is pretty much the next best thing to a new coaster.

^ Could this be wild like the Knott's GhostRider? I'm speculating so! :roll:

Well based on the bracing going up after the lift I think we'll be seeing a barrel roll drop.

Gladly welcomed! The one on Storm Chaser is so fun, and very different from front seat to back seat. It's a really great way to pack a punch into a small layout / short drop and start the ride off with a bang.

So this was leaked. The name seems to be Twisted Timbers.

Not a huge fan of the name or theme since it seems to be the same as Mystic Timbers but I am happy about the first drop.

Oooh. I kinda like the name. LOL 20 airtime moments... obnoxious. I guess they did add almost 30 feet of height though.

Those park chain bigwigs need to keep a tighter grip on confidential info if they don't want it getting leaked. I wonder if a disgruntled employee just took a pic of the screen and posted it, not caring what happens next since they see something better on the other side. I think I've seen at least one custom NL/NL2 creation that already had that same name.

RIP fatherhood. Trying to 1-up Six Flags who only adds about 10 ft to the original height but shorter layout than the original.
Any random childish insults I might have received for expressing an opinion about any particular franchise are fake news.

Well it's kind of cool they're making a little set of rides within the same storyline or whatever. I hope they can manage to put some decent themeing at minimum to something on par with the original Mystic Timbers. But for real, the White House has nothing on the amusement industry in terms of leaks now xD
I'm not brand new to NL2 so ignore how many posts I have atm, I post a lot other places :)

It may be hard to beat the "Mystic Timbers" excitement! High hopes for Hurler, though. :roll:

On the outskirts of Candy Apple Grove sits the remains of the once thriving Hanover Hill Orchard. No one can say exactly 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.

A Wooden Coaster with a Twist of Steel
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.

Ready to Take a Bite?
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.

I was kinda hoping for a low to the ground turn, but man all those bunny hills are going to be sweet.

That's a great layout. Lots of designed lats and plenty of airtime. Fun times mega cool.

Huh, three straight airtime hills in a row is definitely NOT what I expected from RMC! Looks really really good, though I don't think it quite trumps Wicked Cyclone (similar size) in terms of layout. I think that, with all of the elements weaving perfectly into one another in a satisfyingly long layout, they perfected their compact style of ride on that one.

While I doubt this will be most enthusiasts' favorite RMC, it does look like a solid ride and finally answers the question of what RMC would do with an out-and-back layout. There isn't much here that we haven't seen before, but that doesn't mean it won't be a great ride.

Hurray! I guess that RMC they're trying to prove that the original "wooden" layouts charm them before starting to turn those into their ideal works. They did their task beautifully this time, too!

Omg, is that not 1, not 2, but 3 consecutive normal airtime hills? Is this really RMC? Oh wait, they still can't do normal turns.

Because there is no point in doing such turns other then be gimmicky and hope it'll improve the ride. I think they underestimate the power of a good normal turn.
