Several references to Mystic Timbers and Kings Dominion in this sign. The sale is based off the storyline of the Rocky Mountain Construction coaster and refers to what happened that mysterious day in 1950…

Peters USA Drive Training
Peters USA. We Make Driving a Blast. Drive Training. Take to the Roads with Efficient Techniques. Located on the Western Shore of the Little Miami River.
Another reference the the Little Miami River located near King Island.
