Silver Dollar City (SDC) Discussion Thread

P. 261: Arvest Bank announces 10 year sponsorship deal

Recommended Posts

Mmmm, Italian Nachos, so wrong, yet they were pretty darn good.

 

Robb summed everything up perfectly. Outlaw Run is the complete package. From the ride area theme, the unique frozen Barq's root beer, and of course the ride itself.

 

The trains are comfortable and will fit those with larger diameter buttocks. I witnessed a person who was easily 300lbs get in and obtain the needed green light on the lap bar so no worries there for those of you whom it would apply to.

 

My opinion on what my favorite element is has changed pretty much each time I have ridden. I'd say after today though that my favorite part of the ride is the second of the barrel rolls. Why? Simple. Hangtime. When you ride it, and you must, you will know what I mean

 

Don't forget to like RMC's Facebook Page! (And tell them TPR sent you!)

Outlaw Run has always looked like an incredible ride and i'm glad to hear it delivers on everything! The only thing I was concerned about was the length, but I guess what they say is true, length doesn't matter That Batman comparison makes perfect sense because I love it! I'm sure we'll see a lot more from RMC in the coming years.

I don't know if it's asked before for but: I want to know if you can tell from the GP view if the ride has inversions. Like when you walk up to the ride, can you see the either the barrel rolls or are these really to far in the woods?

Fantastic footage! Spectacular update Robb! Like you said, those off ride shots are stunning, they do really show how fast this coaster is. Great addition to Silver Dollar city. I wonder how such an amazing ride only costed 10 million dollars.

Why am I picturing that their 'house cheese blend' includes cheddar?

 

Great coverage! Can't wait to get there this summer and take a bunch of crazy people with me!

 

Remember everyone, we have a few spots open for the Texas Midwest Trip where you'll ride this, iRat, Hades 360, Gatekeeper, and a ton of other awesome stuff!!!

Awesome report. I love the theming of the station now that its all done. They did a great job on it. Those trains just look so fantastic. The ride looks like it was everything it was supposed to be and more. RMC did it again. I can't wait to ride this during the TPR trip. Side note: I liked RMC on facebook a few months ago. They always post great photos of the coasters they are working on.

It was a pretty nice report you put together. Some of the pictures were very nice. I remember some people calling Outlaw Run a steel coaster, but by what you said about the steel wheels and that only the top layer of lamination for the track was all steel I'm still not sure why people classify it as a steel coaster, I wouldn't even call it a hybrid like the New Texas Giant is.

Just fantastic. Branson is such a quirky place, it only makes sense that they'd have a wooden roller coaster that goes upside down.

 

I'm sad that it's Yakov's last year there! I kind of feel bad that we passed by the theatre in 2010 but that show could make a trip to Branson in 2013 worth it even more so. Ah, who am I kidding, it'll be all about Outlaw Run...and perhaps pulling out some old Night Court Episodes with Yakov

For me, this was THE coaster to watch out for, and I am completely impressed!!!!! Just WOW! It's almost like in the early 70's when theme parks made a resurgence with wood coasters, and then the 80's when Arrow started making megacoasters. It started all sorts of theme park wars that even a smaller park like Kennywood got involved in. I would like to think Silver Dollar City and Rocky Mountain Coasters just started Theme Park War III.

I think the red track on NTag just gives it a more hybrid look unlike how Outlaw run is all brown and looks very natural, blends in.

This is seriously an extremely awesome looking hybrid coaster. I so wish I could ride it right now, but sadly that is not likely too happen any time soon. Also the last set of photos by ScottyDoesKnow are great! Spectacular shots!

 

P.S. Notice my use of the word hybrid. This is NOT a wooden coaster, people!

^ Oh but it is. At least according to SDC, RCDB, RMC, Robb, pretty much anyone who knows the industry.

 

You are entitled to your opinion however, but you probably are not going to change any minds on the matter.

Remember, Outlaw Run is topper track, while Texas Giant is IBox track.

 

There are plenty of traditional wooden coasters out there that have put topper track on some of their problem spots, and I don't see anybody trying to claim that they aren't wooden coasters anymore.

 

IMO, Outlaw Run= Wooden Coaster

NTAG= Steel Coaster.

 

Really at the end of the day, I don't care what you call it as long as it kicks ass.

Why wouldn't this be a wooden coaster? It has a wood structure and wood track (this includes the steel plate that goes over the wood layers just like on any other wooden coaster, the only difference is that it is a lot thicker than usual so that it doesn't require so much maintenance and wears off less). It may have a few steel parts but there are no wooden coasters without a single metal part in it.

 

In order to be a hybrid, it would have to have either a steel track and wood supports (like the new Texas giant and iron rattler) or steel supports and a wood track which is not the case. That's why it is, by definition, a wooden coaster.
