THE TALLEST, FASTEST, AND CRAZIEST SPINNING ROLLER COASTER JUST OPENED


“So, you’re going all the way back to Missouri to... ride a roller coaster?” a travel writer friend asked me over a Saturday night plate of kebabs in Morocco. We had nearly the same schedule in early March; a week in Africa followed by St. Paddy’s Day in Dublin the following weekend. She was choosing to explore the desert with her four days in between. But I knew that Branson, Missouri was the place to be on Tuesday, for the opening of the Time Traveler roller coaster.

“It’s the tallest, fastest, steepest spinning coaster in the world!” I told her like an overly excited fifth-grader. “It’s nuts. It starts with this 10-story drop, then it goes into a dive loop, a vertical loop, a zero-G roll. Goes from like zero-to-45 in three seconds.”

“Sounds like flying across an ocean to puke up my lunch,” she said as she helped herself to some couscous. “Have fun with that.”

Clearly she didn’t get it. Or more to the point, she didn’t quite appreciate how groundbreaking Silver Dollar City’s newest coaster was. The $26 million attraction from German thrill ride magnates Mack Rides is like nothing anyone’s ridden before, a tall spinning coaster that sends you careening around the Ozarks at Interstate speeds, with flips. So it reasoned to fly from Africa to middle America to check out the greatest spinning roller coaster ever created.
