Video: Time Traveler Roller Coaster Testing At Silver Dollar City
The time is here! Testing is officially in progress! Silver Dollar City is debuting a shiny new roller coaster in 2018 called “Time Traveler”. It will open as the World’s Fastest, Steepest and Tallest Complete-Circuit Spinning Roller Coaster.
Construction has been going non-stop for the past few months. Back in the Fall of 2017 we stopped by the park for a construction tour. In November, we got to get a first look at the new trains as they were unveiled at the IAAPA Expo in Orlando. Then, after months of anticipation, we get to see these amazing steampunk themed trains take their first drop. Now, we received a new teaser video from the park showing some testing. AND, as a bonus we tossed in some of our own footage of testing!
Time Traveler is well into testing, with trains running, advancing a whole new generation of thrill seekers. We can’t wait until the park opens to take our first official “spin” on this amazing coaster!
When it debuts in the Spring of 2018, Time Traveler will hold numerous world record-breaking stats for a spin coaster:
- 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
A few months back, we made a visit to the Time Traveler construction site for a tour. Click Here to see a plethora of awesome photos while Derk walked around the track!
