Ready To Ride: Thrill Rides

Don’t you love the feeling of buckling into your favorite thrill ride? The anticipation of the moment when the wheels start moving and the adventure begins. The slow buildup as you climb the lift hill. And the adrenaline rush as you plunge down the track and pick up speed. Finally, you feel the wind whoosh through your hair, and for the rest of the ride it’s just you and the forces of physics.

 

We’re definitely ready to ride again and luckily the wait is almost over! For those of you who are planning your first Silver Dollar City adventure, here’s a primer on some of the park’s major thrill rides.

Outlaw Run®

This groundbreaking wood coaster includes: the world’s first and only double barrel roll on a wood coaster, a record-breaking three inversions, and at its 2013 debut, the record steepest drop on a wood coaster of 81 degrees.

WildFire®

This mighty steel coaster features 5 inversions: 2 full loops, a half-loop into a roll, and a cobra roll with back-to-back inversions.

PowderKeg®

This steel air-launch coaster sends riders off at an explosive speed of  0 to 53mph in just 2.8 seconds!

The Giant Barn Swing

2 pendulum arms launch riders more than 7 stories in the airnearly upside down at roller coaster speed.

Other high-speed, high-flying rides to check out include FireFall, an 8-story drop tower; the classic wooden coaster, Thunderation; and Electro Spin, a spinning disk that careens on a track that soars 5 stories on both sides!
