So it's not a zero G roll:( but I would still count that as an inversion, it goes way past a stengel dive

It's not technically wooden, the track is steel. Still, very aesthetically pleasing. :)
Keep on whistlin', folks.

Yeah, careful. I'd trust screamscape as far as I could throw them, until it's built, I won't believe that layout.

First off, that's what she said.
Secondly, I applaud RMC and will devote my life to it for this masterpiece.

Got wood? Here is a POV from riding Outlaw Run: http://www.youtube.com/watch?&v=-KqDI599wvE

Looks like an incredibly intense coaster.

Found this little tidbit of information from TPR's review of the coaster, let me just say it's probably true, until Smiler opens that is.

It packs more action into each foot of track than I think almost any other roller coaster in the world!

Re: Silver Dollar City

Silver Dollar City are finally installing a brand new coaster for the 2018 season. What is exciting about this is that it is expected to be the world's first MACK Xtreme Spinning Coaster, after various sources have confirmed this and due to the coaster being mentioned in a survey sent out by the park. This will be the first of the three Xtreme Spinning Coasters set to be installed in the next year or so. It is also expected this attraction will feature more than one inversion.

More info has popped up about this with its alkeged name being "Time Traveler". An official announcement is coming on August 16th.

That being said this ride is absolutely huge, it seems every aspect of it is. Not only is this set to be SDC's largest coaster the station is 3 stories tall. Below are some images from MidwestInfoGuide shoring the true scale of this enormous station building.

Also, I had previously mentioned this may be a MACK spinning coaster however the first drop out the station has made me... question that somewhat...

Image

Here's a closer look at that incredible drop from Steve Bernstein on Twitter.

I have to admit I'm surprised how this one has went under the radar so much - because this is shaping up to be one of, if not the best new attraction in 2018!

Here's a look at that incredible first drop on Time Traveler.

It looks fantastic!

Here's another update from MidwestInfoGuide!

A look at the dive loop after the first drop and twisted piece of track -

Why must SDC be so awkward to get to?!

This looks fantastic, thanks for posting the pictures Owen!

I wonder if it will be one of the new extreme spinning coasters or not? Regardless, I'm sure it will be a super fun ride!

If this is real then it is going to be a Big Dipper model.
ImageWe'll find out for sure on Wednesday though.
