Riding Shivering Timbers

Can anyone report on their experience riding Shivering Timbers? hứSome were saying that seats went empty because the ride was so rough, and everyone was waiting for the front.

Just go on a day when you have to park mid-Timbers

Ah, good times. Six years now and counting...

Um... is that a Vater-back?

That's funny. I wasn't around for that history but I was at Michigan's Adventure earlier this summer when the entire parking was full; not a spot remaining. I found myself wishing that it was full only to "mid-Timbers." ;)

Not it's best year but far from the worst. Couple years ago after work was done on the helix she was running tops all around. This year there is a sharp bump going up the second and third hills and the rest is still better than most other 20+ year old woodies I have been on.

I just rode ST Friday (8/24). I dont know what everyone is complaining ST being rough!! It had a few rough spots but nothing where I would not ride it. I rode back seat at least 8 times that day. It rained in the afternoon and loosened up and was giving some really good rides after that. So I think its definitely rerideable but I also think Voyage is also.

I rode the very back in May and it was a little rough but nothing too bad. The train was full also. I guess I'm numb to roughness after riding Mean Streak all the time in the back

Rode it about a month ago. Still one of the best woodies out there. Too bad it's at such a small park.

I wonder how hard it would be to move it to Dorney.

Now that's really funny! I would actually be ecstatic if it were moved to Dorney, as that's one of the few parks to which I can actually drive. Needs to stay where it is, however, b/c it's about the only reason I can think of to visit MA. The trip to Michigan really made an impression on me b/c it was still daylight at 10pm and it is never ever daylight in Philly at 10pm. Anyway, I'm sorry they removed the trick track from Shivering Timbers - at least that's what I heard - as that was one of the things I enjoyed about the ride.
