With cowboys roaming the streets, period artisans plying their crafts, musicians performing retro tunes, and other historic nods, Silver Dollar City in Branson, Mo. transports visitors back to the Ozark Mountains of the late 19th century. The charming theme park welcomes guests with the phrase, "You have a great past ahead of you." For 2018, it will put a spin on its era-shifting theme with the new attraction, Time Traveler. The unique ride will be the world's fastest, steepest, and tallest full-circuit spinning roller coaster.
