Silver Dollar City Announces
~Time Traveler~
World’s Fastest, Steepest & Tallest Spinning Coaster
A Revolutionary Coaster Ahead of Our Time Launches Spring 2018




(Branson, MO 8/16/17) Following months of speculation and extreme interest radiating within the amusement industry and from coaster enthusiasts around the globe, Silver Dollar City announces the World’s Fastest, Steepest and Tallest Complete-Circuit Spinning Roller Coaster with the spring 2018 debut of Time Traveler. The Branson, Missouri internationally-awarded 1880s-style theme park makes history again with this custom-designed, custom-engineered attraction that introduces a new generation of thrill coasters for families.

Time Traveler will be world record-breaking:

• Fastest – Top speed of 50.3 miles per hour
• Steepest - A 10-story, 90-degree vertical drop…straight down. Custom-engineered to have
an immediate out-of-the-station, gravity-driven drop down an Ozarks mountainside
• Tallest - Custom-designed for mountainous terrain with its tallest point at 100 feet
• First & Only with Three Inversions - a Dive Loop, a Vertical Loop and a Zero-G Roll
• First & Only with a Vertical Loop - A 95-foot tall loop
• First and Only Double Launch – 0 to 47 mph in 3 seconds; 30 to 45 mph in 3.5 seconds

At an investment of $26 million, this is Silver Dollar City’s biggest attraction EVER. For concept, design and development, Silver Dollar City is working with renowned coaster manufacturer MACK RIDES of Waldkirch, Germany. MACK RIDES, founded in 1780 and family-owned for eight generations, shared Silver Dollar City’s dream to create Time Traveler as a one-of-a-kind ride that combines a variety of coaster elements with mountainous terrain. The track crosses over itself 14 times in total.

“This coaster’s state-of-the-art controlled spin feature provides riders a unique thrill experience while still appealing to families,” said Brad Thomas, President of Silver Dollar City Attractions. “Since Silver Dollar City’s opening day in 1960, guests have taken a journey back in time with unique and world-class experiences. We strive daily to continue that tradition through our rides, our festivals, our crafts and our food. That pursuit continues in 2018 with Time Traveler - a Revolutionary Coaster Ahead of Our Time.”

Many coaster enthusiasts have pointed out the paradox of an 1880s-inspired theme park developing a track record for revolutionizing roller coasters: Time Traveler follows the daring wood coaster Outlaw Run, which after its debut in 2013, made it into the Guinness Book of World Records and earned the coveted title of the industry’s “Best New Ride” that year. “Today, several years later, Outlaw Run still carries high prestige globally, and now Time Traveler will build upon that record-breaking tradition,” said Thomas.

HOLY CRAP! All the attention is at Cedar Point right now (albeit rightfully so), but SDC and Mack have outdone themselves! I was skeptical about the spinning initially, but this looks CRAZY! Wow!!!

SDC has seriously out done themselves!! There is no doubt in my mind that this coaster is going to be a HUGE hit!! I'm super excited for the park! The staff all seems so excited about this addition!

Can't wait to head back to the park in 2018 to give this thing a spin!

They made a big deal out of saying that the ride contains a new magnetically-controlled spinning system that won't let it go too crazy on the spins. On stage they called out the test on Blue Fire and said that the spinning there was deemed too intense so they got together w/ SDC and toned it down.

This is GREAT news to hear. I know I was hesitant about the spinning, but if it is toned down, so it can't get too crazy... Then hopefully those of us who have issues with spinning coasters should still be good!! :br :br :br
