honestly I think a vertical drop on a spinner would suck.


It won't even be spinning by that point, it's like 2 seconds out of the station. Some seats forward. Some seats backward. You're being a hater.

It would be cool to have the option to lock the spinning on an individual car.

But man, That loop is gonna be sweet. So excited to see this turn out.

I retract my statement about there being no way a spinning coaster could be such a large investment. This looks better than I imagined already.
What are these for?

So it seems the vertical drop heads straight into a dive loop. This thing looks insane.

Silver Dollar City Announces the World's Tallest, Fastest, and Steepest Spinning Coaster for 2018!

Image

(Branson, MO 8/16/17) Following months of speculation and extreme interest radiating within the amusement industry and from coaster enthusiasts around the globe, Silver Dollar City announces the World’s Fastest, Steepest and Tallest Complete-Circuit Spinning Roller Coaster with the spring 2018 debut of Time Traveler. The Branson, Missouri internationally-awarded 1880s-style theme park makes history again with this custom-designed, custom-engineered attraction that introduces a new generation of thrill coasters for families.

Time Traveler will be world record-breaking:

• 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

At an investment of $26 million, this is Silver Dollar City’s biggest attraction EVER. For concept, design and development, Silver Dollar City is working with renowned coaster manufacturer MACK RIDES of Waldkirch, Germany. MACK RIDES, founded in 1780 and family-owned for eight generations, shared Silver Dollar City’s dream to create Time Traveler as a one-of-a-kind ride that combines a variety of coaster elements with mountainous terrain. The track crosses over itself 14 times in total.

“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.”

Many coaster enthusiasts have pointed out the paradox of an 1880s-inspired theme park developing a track record for revolutionizing roller coasters: Time Traveler follows the daring wood coaster Outlaw Run, which after its debut in 2013, made it into the Guinness Book of World Records and earned the coveted title of the industry’s “Best New Ride” that year. “Today, several years later, Outlaw Run still carries high prestige globally, and now Time Traveler will build upon that record-breaking tradition,” said Thomas.

I've played the Zero Escape series, so I know how extremely convoluted time travel can get.
Why did the ibis cross the Nile? Who knows?

Wow this looks good! The layout on this one reminds me of that NL1 ride Curse of Fellfall Wood in a way (great intro, with nonstop fast-paced elements for the main course followed by a finale of big, soaring elements). Really wish it didn't stop before the first launch though -- that really looks like it could kill the pacing.

That second launch seems like a waste with it hitting the brakes so soon after, but it looks like a lot of fun either way.
What are these for?

Well the launch is the only way it has speed to reach the original height. I do kinda wish they had one more major element in that block though. But it will be an exhilarating finale nonetheless.
