Branson Vacations Just Got a Little Wilder!
Last week Silver Dollar City, the most popular Branson vacation destination, had a major announcement on a ten million dollar project that's been under construction this year. And if you've been to Silver Dollar City lately, you'll know that it's getting hard to hide!
In 2013, Silver Dollar City will be bringing Outlaw Run to life. This ten million dollar wooden roller coaster will be another record breaking affair for the park. In addition to being the most impressive wooden roller coaster in the park, it is also a world record breaking coaster in a number of ways.
- Steepest Wooden Roller Coaster Drop in the world - An 81 degree drop will be awaiting riders on Outlaw Run, this sixteen story drop was made possible thanks to the coaster's design that incorporated the hilly terrain of the Ozarks into the ride itself. Go up a ten story tower, drop down sixteen stories! This great drop and height will allow the coaster to max out at 68 miles per hour. Even at these speeds a loop of the quarter mile track will stick take nearly 90 seconds.
- 720 Degree Double Barrel Roll - If you're not familiar with a barrell roll, it is exactly what it sounds--a complete corkscrew like riding the inside of a barrel. Twice! And this is the only wooden roller coaster in the world to feature an upside down twist like this.
