Silver Dollar City has been expanding their collection of new and recording breaking attractions for the past few years. The park opened Outlaw Run in 2013, a Rocky Mountain Construction wooden roller coaster that goes upside down. In 2018, the park is planning to build another world first new attraction. Many months of speculation by the coaster community and those visiting the park have been put to rest. The park has officially announced that Time Traveler will debut in 2018 as the world’s tallest, fastest and steepest complete circuity spinning coaster.
This will be the largest investment for Silver Dollar City ever at $26 million. The park will be working with the ride manufacturer Mack Rides of Germany to develop this amazing experience. Some of the many world record breaking features include: Fastest: Top speed of 50.3 miles per hour Steepest: A 10-story 90-degree first vertical drop Tallest: 100 feet First & only with three inversions: a Dive Loop, Vertical Loop, and Zero-G Roll First & only with Vertical Loop 95 foot tall loop First and only double launch 0 to 47 mph in 3 seconds; 30 to 45 mph in 3.5 seconds. Time Traveler will continue to deliver on new innovation when it debuts in Spring 2018. The ride will be added to a lineup of many world class coasters at the park including Outlaw Run and Wildfire.
“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.”

Time Traveler opens in Spring 2018. Silver Dollar City is open mid-March through December. Other Silver Dollar City Branson attractions include White Water and Showboat Branson Belle.
