$10 million ride sends passengers soaring through the Ozark Mountains on a wood coaster that includes several "world's first" attributes:
World's first and only double barrel roll on a wood coaster - a 720-degree, double barrel roll
World's steepest drop on a wood coaster - a 16-story drop at 81 degrees, nearly vertical
World's only wood coaster to twist upside down with a record-breaking three inversions
Second fastest wood coaster in the world - Top speed of 68 mph, world's fastest wood coaster on steel wheels
After a year of construction and international monitoring by thrill ride enthusiasts, Outlaw Run opened with the proof that such extreme elements as the double barrel roll can, in fact, be done on a wood coaster. "We wanted to give our guests a new thrill ride like nothing anywhere on the planet," said
Brad Thomas, senior vice president, Silver Dollar City Attractions. "This high-tech wood coaster with never-done-before thrill elements raises the bar in the ride world to an all-new level."
Silver Dollar City, awarded for theme development, designs attractions with storylines based in real history. Outlaw Run is set within an authentic Stagecoach Depot, going beyond the outskirts of the main city where civility is waning and outlaws may lurk. Stagecoach passengers head into untamed territory where at any minute, a wild chase could ensue.
The ride takes advantage of the natural mountain terrain, with "stagecoach" trains taking riders on a journey of unexpected drops, thrilling twists and rolling inversions. Riders soar through nine locations where they will experience "airtime" – or weightlessness.
