World's Fastest, Steepest and Tallest Spinning Coaster Opens

Time Traveler, the world's fastest, steepest and tallest complete-circuit spinning roller coaster opened on Wednesday, March 14, 2018.

What makes Time Traveler truly unique is the combination of spinning vehicles combined with such thrill factors as a vertical drop, double launches and multiple inversions. The spin is not a teacup-ride fast spin but a 360-degree controlled spin that delivers high dimension, sensations and perspectives that differ with every car, every ride, every time.

And unlike most coasters that begin with a slow, chain-clacking ride to the top of a lift, Time Traveler's thrills start in the first seconds of the ride as the cars leave the load station with a spin and a 10-story drop straight down, racing down a mountainside and through the trees in the mountainous terrain.

The track twists and loops, reaching heights of 100 feet, crossing over itself 14 times in total. Riders get two launches on Time Traveler: 0 to 47 mph in 3 seconds, and 30 to 45 mph in 3.5 seconds.
