Twisted Timbers

On the outskirts of Candy Apple Grove sits the remains of the once-thriving Hanover Hill Orchard. No one can say exactly what happened that day back in 1950. What destroyed half of the harvest in a matter of seconds? What shook the ground, turned over tractors, shattered glass, and nearly peeled the siding off the warehouse, all without warning...all without a cloud in the sky?

Strictly “off-limits” for decades, this land of local legend is finally open to the public! You are invited to experience Twisted Timbers, an exclusive tour of the now famed Hanover Hill Orchard. Take a ride through previously forbidden grounds where you’ll experience the unexplainable and see evidence preserved from that fateful day. Hold on tight because this is a tour with a twist. This is Twisted Timbers.

*To provide increased ride capacity and shorten wait times, hats, bags, purses, and other loose articles may not be taken into the queue lines at Twisted Timbers. 

**Unsecured articles must be left with a non-rider or placed in a locker located near the ride. Riders must go through metal detectors prior to boarding ride, and any loose articles identified must be secured prior to riding.

A Wooden Coaster with a Twist of Steel

Steel and wood combine forces to bring you our newest rollercoaster – Twisted Timbers. This hybrid coaster is the first of its kind in the mid-Atlantic and uses the latest technology to combine wood supports and steel track to give riders an experience that is impossible on a traditional wooden coaster.
