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 here.

To Anonymous Poster at this point everyone is saying, "lap bars only."

This coaster is going to be simply amazing.

World's only wooden coaster with an inversion? I thought there was one?

I thought there was another wooden coaster that featured an inversion? Do you mean the only coaster to have a double barrel roll?
From James Rao on August 10, 2012 at 8:12 PM
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).

I am a little surprised if it does just get lap bars though.... I mean, that double barrel roll looks like what I use to call a corkscrew on most of the old Arrow style coasters..... and those all always had the over the shoulder restraing.... I've never seen a coaster do a corkscrew effect without one..... (not saying it can't be done.... or will not be....).

It looks like a very unique coaster though. It's definatelly not like how a park opens up say.... a new B & M Hyper..... or a new B & M Flyer.... or whatever..... and you kind of have already seen that coaster for the most part..... it's just got a new layout. This one seems really different..... and I have to say almost just the look of it with the wood and steel and inversions looks dangerous..... like some rich guys experiment in his backyard that I might be afraid to get on..... lol. The wood and steel with the inversions has an intimidating look....It takes the you feel like you are gonna hit your head on a beam effect to a new place!

Could this be the next Son of Beast type disaster? When will folks learn inversions and woodies don't mix well.
