First Twisted Timbers Train Arrives At Kings Dominion
When Kings Dominion opens for the 2018 season, their famed Hurler roller coaster will be re-imagined and reconstructed into a new twisted wonder containing wood and steel called Twisted Timbers.
The re-imagined coaster will be taller, longer, faster and most importantly SMOOTHER than ever before! The ride will still use many of the wood supports that have been in place for many years, but will now have steel support beams mixed in. The track has been converted to a steel i-box track for an ultra smooth ride offering inversions that were once not possible on a wooden coaster. And that’s not all! Twisted Timbers will also feature a 109 ft barrel roll drop, 3 over-banked turns, plus 20 airtime hills!
The first train for Twisted Timbers has finally arrived on site. Keeping with the apple orchard theme, the new lead car is modeled after an awesome circa 1950’s style vehicle. Check out the pictures below!
