With its March 2018 debut, leaders at Silver Dollar City say the Time Traveler marks a new era in coasters, delivering ride experiences unlike any before.
A major difference is the spin, which is not a teacup-ride fast spin but a 360-degree controlled spin that delivers high dimension, sensations and perspectives that differ with every car, every ride, every time.
A date has officially been set for the opening day of the Time Traveler: March 14th.
It was more than two years in planning and construction, and is Silver Dollar City’s biggest attraction ever with an investment of $26 million.
“If you like rides, if you like unique experiences, and if you like thrills, you will love Time Traveler,” said Nick Breithaupt, Silver Dollar City Attractions. “No matter which car you choose, your ride experience will be different every time.”
The track twists and loops, reaching heights of 100 feet, crossing over itself 14 times in total.
Plus, the highly-themed cars create the experience of an actual “TimeMachine.”
