Time Traveler car debuts

On the Mack Rides booth during the recent IAAPA Attractions Expo in Orlando, Silver Dollar City revealed the first vehicle of the ground-breaking roller coaster, Time Traveler. The ride will debut at the Branson, Missouri, theme park in Spring 2018. Representatives from the German-based manufacturer and the American-based theme park together pulled back a curtain to unveil the vehicle, which dramatically emerged from a cloud of fog.

The Time Traveler vehicle is part of an innovative project currently underway at the 1880s-themed park, which will present the ‘World’s Fastest, Steepest and Tallest Complete-Circuit Spinning Roller Coaster’ in a few short months.

“The car is the most advanced roller coaster car in the industry, featuring a free-spinning rotation on a launched roller coaster,” said Christian von Elverfeldt, CEO of Mack Rides, the ride’s manufacturer. “For the utmost comfort, an on-board magnetic brake limits the rotation speed to allow the most enjoyable ride experience for all ages.”
