The Timberline Twister roller coaster at Gilroy Gardens, Gilroy, California

The first coaster we hit during our visit to Gilroy Gardens is the Timber Twister Coaster.

The Timber Twister is a production line Zierer Tivoli coaster that has been squeezed into the woods.

The train is also appropriately themed.

The Timber Twister; despite being a off the shelf design, was wonderfully tucked in between the trees making it feel like a custom design.

My take on the Timber Twister was that is was insanely fun.  It is not huge on the thrills but with all of the close calls with the surrounding trees the scenery makes the ride significantly better.
