. The attraction is now set to hit main construction ready to open by April 2017!
The ride is rumoured to have a show/secret element at the end of the ride, with advertising heavily using the hashtag "#whatsintheshed". The brake run is also crooked leading up to this section of the ride, as seen in the POV.The Story
Rivertown’s beginning was the formation of the K.I. & Miami Valley Railroad and the Miami River Lumber Company. The lumber company began buying large sections of wooded land with the goal of using the railroad to make it easier to ship the timber out. But something mysterious, something that could not be explained, began to happen. The area surrounding the lumber company became overrun by a medusa-like growth of vines as nature moved in and reclaimed its land.Stats
