haha. I seriously think ric rolling everyone in the shed would have been awesome. Maybe have it do it randomly about every 1000 rides or so. That would be legendary!

Tekwardo I was thinking the same thing. Invadr is a fun little ride, and this has to be better.

*sigh* I had such a crush on Rick Astley back in the day....

I made it down for the preview on Friday. Arrived at 2:30 and got on Mystic Timbers before 4:30. The line behind me stretched long as described above.

Mystic Timbers was all the good things I remembered from Prowler at Worlds of Fun (one of my favorite coasters). After comparing the layouts and POVs this makes sense as they are practically the same ride. See this side by side view with most of the layouts in sync:

Stopped by Sunday for a ride on this, waited about 1hr near the back of the train. Overall, the ride was very, very good. Fun layout, great forces and smooth as expected. Loved the theming, it makes the overall experience that much better.

I had no expectation for the shed (I didn't care about it at all during the off-season), but I really like how it ends the ride. It's just a little something fun/extra. Better than sitting out in the sun while they load up the next train.

Super solid ride... Looking forward to going back in a few weeks to get a few more rides on it.
