Man, this thing looks incredible. One of these days I need to finally bite the bullet and travel to Silver Dollar City. With this and Outlaw Run in the same park, plus Powder Keg and Wildfire, it is high on my priority list of parks to visit.

Awesome video too! Wow! Amazing quality.

SDC app is reporting a 2.5 hour wait time. I know it's opening day but it is a Wednesday. Definitely seems like they have a hit

How can you say it's over hyped when you have yet to ride it?

Sounds right. Outlaw Run had a 3 hour wait opening day. This is Spring Break for most area schools, so that's not unexpectedly busy.

Yeah, his video was pretty solid. I used to think his comments were obnoxious and unnecessary. As I've learned to take life (and myself...) far less serious I like laughing at his cheesy comments and I enjoy them. There are plenty of other good silent videos to look elsewhere if that's what you desire.

Maybe it was the "My titties are jiggling!" comment that won me over...

Out of curiosity, I took a look at their Trailblazer add-on and it looks like you can use one skip per day on Time Traveler. If I remember correctly, the park did something similar for Outlaw Run as well. Did that last for the entirety of Outlaw Run's first season?

Yes, for 2013 and 2014 both. Then in 2015 they switched and allowed one skip on Firefall. The last couple of years there haven't been restrictions.

Awesome video! And for those of us in the "no-spin zone" (but who LOVE coasters), it seems like a heaven-sent ride. (I also appreciate that the rider can actually SEE and FEEL the experience without coming off dazed -- a perfect combo of sensation and perception!)
