Get ready to travel back in time at Branson’s Silver Dollar City.

The amusement park has opened the record-breaking Time Traveler, the world’s fastest, steepest and tallest spinning roller coaster. The new roller coaster travels speeds of 50.3 mph and ascends 10 stories before a 90-degree drop. At its tallest, the roller coaster reaches 100 feet.

The Time Traveler is 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.

The Time Traveler follows the 2013 debut of Outlaw Run, which landed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the World’s Steepest Roller Coaster at the time.
