Biggest, Tallest, Fastest: 20 Record-Breaking Travel Destinations
The world of roller coasters is cutthroat with designers and theme parks rushing to release the next biggest, fastest, most death-defying rides as soon as possible after a new record is set. Which is why it’s so impressive that none of Time Traveler’s titles have been taken away since it opened at Silver Dollar City in Branson in March of 2018. More than a year later, it’s still considered the world’s fastest, steepest, and tallest spinning roller coaster. Its tallest point is 100 feet and its top speed is 50.3 miles per hour. Its steepest moment is a 10-story, 90-degree vertical drop and it is the first and only coaster with three inversions and with a vertical loop.
