Silver Dollar City is opening a potential landmark roller coaster in Outlaw Run. Designed by Rocky Mountain Construction, Outlaw Run will be a hybrid roller coaster. Blurring the lines of categorization, the ride will have steel Outlaw Run - Double Barrel Roll - Looptopper track sitting on wooden support track. Regardless of what it’s called, this looks to be a fantastic ride. Riders are taken down a steep 81-degree drop, and then through unique turns and elements we’ve yet to experience on a mostly wooden roller coaster. The highlight, and complete showstopper when it was announced, looks to be the double-barrel roll. Why You Should Be Excited – Thanks to Rocky Mountain Construction’s steel topper track, Outlaw Run has some very exciting elements including that barrel roll. This element not only ignited the coaster enthusiast crowd last winter, but it will also likely draw the attention of the general public as most know that wooden coasters don’t usually perform tight loops like that. After I picked my jaw up off of the floor after seeing that first barrel roll image, I’ve been following this ride’s developments all off-season. Thanks to Outlaw Run, Silver Dollar City is at the top of the list of parks that I’m looking to visit in 2013.
