(9:33 am EST) -- Get ready to travel back in time at Branson's Silver Dollar City.

The amusement park has announced plans for the record-breaking Time Traveler, the world's fastest, steepest and tallest spinning roller coaster. It will travel speeds of 50.3 mph, ascend 10 stories before a 90-degree drop, and, at its tallest, reach 100 feet high.

Time Traveler will also be the first and only roller coaster with a vertical loop (95 feet tall), three inversions (dive loop, vertical loop and Zero-G roll) and a double launch (0 to 47 mph in three seconds and 30 to 45 mph in 3.5 seconds). Whoa.

Set to debut in 2018, Time Traveler follows the 2013 debut of Outlaw Run, which landed in the Guinness Book of World Records for World's Steepest Roller Coaster.
