One of the worst kept secrets in the theme park world is finally official: Silver Dollar City is getting a brand new wood/steel hybrid roller coaster for 2013.
Currently under construction
Built from the ground up by Rocky Mountain Construction Group, the folks who resurrected the Texas Giant, SDC's Outlaw Run will feature a few eye popping stats sure to impress Coaster Boys and Girls everywhere!
- 162', 81 degree first drop, the world's steepest drop for a wooden coaster
- 68 mph top speed, the second fastest wooden coaster on the planet
- The world’s only wooden coaster to feature an inversion (double barrel roll)
- Here are construction photos

This looks freakin awesome I might have to beg my parents to go to SDC.
I think I will be making my first trip to Branson next spring! Interesting to note that Silver Dollar City is billing this coaster as having three inversions (outside banked turn + double barrel roll).
With the double barrel roll..... it makes me wonder if that means over the shoulder restraints.
Midwest Info Guide has a real nice, behind the scenes construction tour from yesterday's announcement. Check it out
To Anonymous Poster 220.127.116.11... at this point everyone is saying, "lap bars only."
World's only wooden coaster with an inversion? I thought there was one?
Nope, there are no other wooden coasters with inversions. Son of Beast is no more.
Thanks for the info about the lap bars James..... (I have a log in on here, but just hardly ever bother logging in).
Could this be the next Son of Beast type disaster? When will folks learn inversions and woodies don't mix well.
I know california screamin' is considered a steel coaster but isnt also considered a wooden coaster in some ways?
