MASON, OH (FOX19) -- After months of speculation, Kings Island officials confirmed a new wooden roller coaster is under construction for the 2017 season.

Mystic Timbers is set to open in April, park officials announced late Thursday night. It is Kings Island's 16th coaster.

The two-minute ride boasts 16 "air-time" hills, a mid-course tunnel, an extreme "S-curve" and will interact with the park's train and White Water Canyon attractions. 

Mystic Timbers will be 3,265 feet in length, reach 109 feet in height and reach speeds up to 53 mph. It's themed around a lumber company being overrun by a mysterious overgrowth of vines, according to a release from the park.
