Shivering Timbers is a wooden roller coaster at Michigan’s Adventure in Muskegon County, Michigan The coaster opened in May 1998 with record breaking numbers: the lift hill tops out at 125 feet and drops you down 120 feet at a hair over 53 degrees, good enough to send the PTC trains flying along at 65 miles per. The second and third hills are nearly as mouth-watering: 100 feet at 51.5 degrees and 95 feet at 50 degrees. Those treats are followed by a fourth, 50-foot tall drop and a gorgeous swooping U-turn. All summed up Shivering Timbers stands as the 6th longest wooden roller coaster in the world.
