This attraction is set to Mark a new era in coasters, it will deliver different experiences with every ride all the time.
The big difference is Time Traveler’s spin, which is not a spin-ridden fast spin, but rather a 360-degree spin that delivers high dimension, sensations and perspectives that differ with every car, every ride, every time.
Coaster lovers around the world in search of the latest, best, most exciting riding elements on the planet can come to the entertainment city Branson, Missouri, that is home to the Silver Dollar City theme park. This internationally awarded 1880s style theme park was established by Herschend Family Entertainment in 1960.
This is Silver Dollar City’s biggest attraction ever constructed with a total investment of $ 26 million. This custom-designed, custom-engineered ride was more than two years in the planning and construction phase.
Concept, design, and development is done by coaster manufacturer Mack Rides of Waldkirch, Germany, founded in 1780 and family-owned for eight generations.

First & Only with Three Inversions – a Dive Loop, a Vertical Loop and a Zero-G Roll

“This coaster’s state-of-the-art controlled spin provides riders a unique thrill experience while still appealing to families,” said Brad Thomas, President of Silver Dollar City Attractions, the initial advocate for delivering a ride like no other. Thomas says Silver Dollar City partnered with MACK because of their long-standing reputation for delivering many of the best and most innovative rides in the entire industry.
Christian von Elverfeldt, CEO of Mack Rides, is traveling to the United States for the Time Traveler debut. The car is the most advanced roller coaster car in the industry, featuring a free-spinning rotation on a launched roller coaster, said von Elverfeldt. For the utmost comfort, an on-board magnetic brake limits the rotation speed to allow the most enjoyable ride experience.
Time Traveler is set to open with the park’s Spring Ride Days, March 14. More information is at 800-831-4FUN(386) and www.silverdollarcity.com.
