It looks like Kings Island will be getting a new roller coaster in 2017.

For several weeks now, the park has been tweeting cryptic messages and photos hinting that a new attraction is coming to its Rivertown section.

One of the tweets simply asks: “If a tree falls in the forest does it make a sound? #KIProject2017.”

The park even invited visitors to look over the tree removal work from its K.I. & Miami Valley Railroad attraction.

Plans for what a new roller coaster at the park might look like have surfaced after Kings Island sought approval from Mason city planners to begin pouring footers for a coaster that crosses over itself twice.

The park is already home to 15 roller coasters.

Two of those coasters — the Diamondback and the celebrated Beast — are located within the Rivertown section.

The area features a Western theme that depicts an old town with ranch-like structures.

Rivertown was among the original themed areas of the park when it opened in 1972.
