NOTCH, Mo. -- Silver Dollar City unveiled its new thrill ride on Thursday morning. Outlaw Run is a $10 million wooden roller coaster that should open next year. Construction is already underway.
"From anywhere in the park you can see that first hill, and that one's just spectacular," said
Duane Marden, a roller coaster enthusiast from Wisconsin.
Marden compiles an official list of ride info for thrill seekers like himself and publishes it on his website http://rcdb.com.
Outlaw will achieve speeds of 68 miles per hour and feature the world's steepest drop on a wooden roller coaster. Outlaw Run also will be the only wooden roller coaster with 360-degree double barrel rolls. It is the first wooden coaster with the technology to turn riders upside down, and it does so three separate times.
"One of the things I like about this ride, it's going to be very fast. It's never going to let up," Marden said.
