Time Traveler

For the truly fearless

What it Offers: A 90-degree, 10-story drop; 50.3 mile-per-hour speeds; spinning cars; three inversions and a 95-foot-tall inversion. Phew! That’s a lot of action.
What it Feels Like: Being strapped into a rock tumbler that’s barreling down a hill at full speed—but in a good way! Truly, this ride is seriously so fun.

PowderKeg

For anyone who dreams of blasting off

What it Offers: A 0- to 53-miles-per-hour launch that only takes 2.8 seconds, a 110-foot drop and 64-mile-per-hour top speeds.
What it Feels Like: Being shot out of a cannon while you giggle uncontrollably. It’s an SDC classic.

Fire in the Hole

For nostalgia-lovers

What it Offers: A twangy Baldknobbers back story, some dribbles of water here and there (but not enough to soak you), and a few mild roller coaster drops.
What it Feels Like: A Walt Disney World indoor ride-through attraction with a distinct Ozarks vibe and some seriously old (but that’s why we love them) animatronics.

Mystic River Falls

For roller coaster weenies

What it Offers: Huge rafts, rushing water, a long 5.5-minute ride and a swift drop into a big splashdown.
What it Feels Like: The fun and thrill of white water rafting but without the danger. Like a roller coaster—but just barely.
