What Silver Dollar City theme park in Branson, Missouri claims to be the world's most daring wood coaster, Outlaw Run debuted March 15, 2013 as a first-of-its-kind thrill ride offering riders three inversions.

The Western theme park also opened for the 2013 season, launching Outlaw Run's first riders on the groundbreaking wood coaster.

After a year of construction and international monitoring by thrill ride enthusiasts, Outlaw Run opened with the proof that such extreme elements as the double barrel roll can, in fact, be done on a wood coaster.

"We wanted to give our guests a new thrill ride like nothing anywhere on the planet," said Brad Thomas, senior vice president, Silver Dollar City Attractions. "This high-tech wood coaster with never-done-before thrill elements raises the bar in the ride world to an all-new level."

Silver Dollar City, awarded for theme development, designs attractions with storylines based in real history.

Outlaw Run is set within an authentic Stagecoach Depot, going beyond the outskirts of the main city where civility is waning and outlaws may lurk. Stagecoach passengers head into untamed territory where at any minute, a wild chase could ensue.

The ride takes advantage of the natural mountain terrain, with "stagecoach" trains taking riders on a journey of unexpected drops, thrilling twists and rolling inversions. Riders soar through nine locations where they will experience "airtime" - or weightlessness.

Silver Dollar City, an 1880s-style theme park, now open for the season, has more than 30 rides and attractions, award-winning festivals and entertainment, plus an authentic crafts colony 100-strong.
