We love living in Stillwater, but we also love to travel. Sometimes we can’t get away for more than a few days so it’s pretty awesome that we have so many options within a half-day’s drive of home. One of our favorite destinations for family fun, entertainment, and relaxation is Branson, MO, home of Silver Dollar City and SO much more! So we are pretty excited that Silver Dollar City continues to grow and add new attractions like the highly anticipated Time Traveler!
The Time Traveler is the theme park’s new roller coaster and…well…it’s insane! The coaster-heads in our family can’t wait to give it a ride. When it opens, Time Traveler will be the world’s fastest, steepest, and tallest complete circuit spinning roller coaster. It’s also Silver Dollar City’s biggest attraction ever. It is a $26 million custom-designed, custom-engineered attraction that will introduce a new generation of thrill coasters for families.
Time Traveler will break world records, including:
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
Silver Dollar City opens for the season on March 14 and Time Traveler is the headliner for this new season of fun and excitement at Silver Dollar City. Here’s the latest video just released from Silver Dollar City about this ground-breaking attraction, featuring some really interesting information about the engineering behind this marvel!
