This week Silver Dollar City revealed their revolutionary new ride—the world's tallest, fastest, and steepest spinning coaster. Time Traveler is the first Xtreme Spinning Coaster from Mack Rides, meaning it will be able to complete inversions and launches not found on a traditional spinning coaster.
Kings Dominion has been hard at work transforming their old wooden coaster into a stunning hybrid from Rocky Mountain Construction. Keeping Hurler's old layout, the park has intensified the ride's airtime hills, added overbanked turns and inversions, and given the ride a new name: Twisted Timbers.
Ever since Cedar Point began transforming Mean Streak into a wild new Rocky Mountain Construction hybrid, we've been patiently waiting to hear the full details on the new coaster. Now, the park has made their official announcement, revealing a towering IBox coaster called Steel Vengeance.
In a surprise announcement today, Six Flags Fiesta Texas revealed their plans to build Wonder Woman Golden Lasso—the world's first single-rail coaster from Rocky Mountain Construction.
This year's lineup of new coasters isn't that impressive, with the best new ride for 2017 being a small GCI coaster. Thankfully, 2018 is already promising to make up for it, with lots of early construction taking place and some parks even making their announcements.
