Powder Keg – Branson Roller Coasters Review
Thousand Hills Golf Resort wants to welcome you to beautiful Branson, MO! While you are visiting us take some time out and visit Silver Dollar City just 7.3 miles from your accommodations.
While there don’t forget to visit the famous PowderKeg®, launching from 0 to 53 miles per hour in just under 3.0 seconds using a compressed air-launch with spiraling turns using negative G forces and Floater hills reaching speeds up to 64 miles per hour! Once launched with the initial blast of speed and 110 foot drop, you soar through trees over six acres on 3,500 feet of track for a ride of a lifetime.
PowderKeg gets it’s name in honor of the miners who worked deep within Marvel Cave (another Silver Dollar City attraction), which is located deep beneath the Ozark hills the park sits on today. The cave became valuable in the 1880’s due to the incredible amounts of nitrogen-rich bat guano that was stored & mined from the cave. The guano was transported to mills all over the country to be converted into black powder for the firearms of the day. The story of PowderKeg the ride begins in one of these dangerous mills and includes barrels of nitroglycerin that shake & tip causing you and your seatmates to blast off into the surrounding woods!
