 Review of Shivering Timbers @ Michigans Adventure
1 Rating Posted by: ginzo on 9/6/2008 3:51:00 PM
Shivering Timbers seems to be one of the more well-preserved CCI woodies around. Although I generally prefer a few more turns, the out-n-back lay out works pretty well in this instance. The airtime was pretty solid floater air in the front seat. There is plenty of it and it did not get monotonous. Apart from a few exceptions, airtime is the main thing I seek in a coaster.
So, why does this apparently world class coaster get a mere 8? Colossos at Heide Park. As I rode Timbers, my mind kept going back to the fact that this just seems like a tamer version of the German ejector air machine. For me, ejector air always beats floater air. Also, I am not really much of a fan of the trick track element, but I am not going to hold that against Timbers. Maybe a few awesome rain rides would bump Timbers up to a 9, but I am going to keep it at 8 for now.

I'.m glad to hear that Shivering Timbers is being kept up well and that Cedar Fair has yet to place a trim brake on the first drop, but the jet-ski-in-choppy-water-like experience of this ride just doesn'.t hit me where I live.

I didn'.t really notice the jet ski effect you'.re describing, except for maybe at the trick track. I thought the ride was pretty good. It just lacked that extra oopmf requisite to make it a top 10 or even top 20 coaster.
