Are you ready for Branson, Mo’s Silver Dollar’s City new roller coaster in 2018? This roller coaster is reported to be EPIC! As soon as the park opens I will be sure to make another post and add pictures (my wife is afraid of Roller Coasters so she will be the photographer! lol).. It is called “The Time Traveler” and it is the steepest, the tallest, and fastest spinning roller coaster in the world. Each year Silver Dollar City gives their tourists more reasons to come back.. Even if you have been to SDC multiple times, there will always be new things to do, new festivals planned, and more rides for kids and adults alike.
Branson’s New 2018 Silver Dollar City Roller Coaster – Time Traveler
Spinning roller coasters aren’t for everybody, and you may walk away from “The Time Traveler” feeling a little woozy on your feet. Time Traveler will break three world records for spinning coasters so be prepared that you can handle these sorts of rides before you get strapped in and definitely before you chowed down on some of Silver Dollar City’s delicious food.
The Time Traveler has a state of the art 360 degree spinning vehicles, but that is not what separates this new roller coaster from other spinning rides. Branson, Mo is located in the Ozark Mountains and the Time Traveler takes advantage of this mountainous terrain. Immediately, the thrill seeking passengers will shoot 100 feet straight down a mountainside going at a speed of 50 miles per hour. You will then be flipped upside down 3 separate times (this breaks the World Record for spinning coasters). You will be spinning upside down during a 95 foot vertical loop, a dive lope and a Zero-G roll! Yes, I’m getting excited just typing about this new ride! Spring of 2018 can’t get here soon enough!
To maintain the speed, trains pass though 2 linear synchronous motor launches.. So, this is a two minute ride that doesn’t give you much downtime to catch your breath!

Other Roller Coaster I Recommend While at Silver Dollar City
Just a few years ago, Branson’s Silver Dollar City built another record breaking roller coaster called Outlaw Run. It is the Worlds fastest wooden roller coaster and also the first wooden coaster that goes upside down. They also have Thunderation, The Powder Keg and several other heart stoppers that will keep you having fun all throughout the day.
Save Money Buying Silver Dollar City Tickets
I have found that if you love amusement parks, then it is best to buy a Silver Dollar City season pass.. It only costs a few more dollars than a 1 day pass, so it’s almost silly not to get the season pass. They also offer discounts packages throughout the year. Check out the current Silver Dollar City Special Packages that they are currently running and plan a family vacation in that will always be remembered!
