The Experience

* Arrangement: Riders are arranged 2 across, 6 seats per car for a total of 24 riders per train.
* Notes: Largest wooden coaster in the state of Washington; first wooden coaster built since John Miller designed and Fred Church provided the trains for the Coaster Thrill Ride at the Puyallup Fairgrounds in 1935. Al Rubano was the construction supervisor for this ride.
* Structure: Modeled after Roar, two different coasters Great Coasters International (GCI) built for Six Flags, TimberHawk is slightly shorter in height & length. Supported by 1,265 concrete pedestals. More than 514,000 board feet of specially treated Southern Yellow Pine (SYP) from Simsboro, Louisiana along with more than 500,000 nails, screws, nuts and washers were used in the construction over a 4-month period.
* Elements: Starting up a 68 ft lift hill, a powerful first drop forces you to "duck" beneath a beam followed by a 90 left turn at the base of the first hill. From here we barrel at maximum speed to a double-up, dropping hard and fast into a fan curve. Next is a nice double-dip, passing over track and down the second dip after another right-hand twist. We slice back under the first hill that started our predicament, then race through the last hill, bracing along a 90 turn before plunging below yet another low track beam. Thinking our journey may be nearing an end, TimberHawk swoops down and perilously drops us into an S-turn, before bunny-hopping our way into a 45 haze. Also includes 20 crossovers, 12 drops, 12 curves, 6 reversals, and that exciting 50 mph | 60 banked turn.

The Verdict
This is S&S Power's first foray into wooden coasters. We're anxious to hear how it turns out.
