Layout[edit | edit source]

After the front gates open, the trains leave the station and head into its maximum vertical angle drop of 90-degrees. Descending the 90 foot (27 m) drop at its maximum speed of 50.3 miles per hour (81.0 km/h), the trains enter a dive loop, head upwards into a left banked turn and then a right banked U-turn. Next, the trains enter the first LSM launch section where they stop momentarily before accelerating to 47 miles per hour (76 km/h) in three seconds. The trains then enter a horseshoe before continuing down left into the 95 foot (29 m) vertical loop. Immediately after, the trains follow upwards into a left banked turn and subsequently head downward into a right banked curve where it transitions into a zero-gravity roll. The trains after traverse into another left banked turn upwards before dipping down into the second LSM launch going from 30 miles per hour (48 km/h) to 45 miles per hour (72 km/h). Following the launch, the trains head up into a overbanked turn to the right before heading towards a left banked turn and into the final brake run where the train makes a right U-turn back into the station. One cycle of the ride takes about two minutes.

Trains[edit | edit source]

3 trains with 4 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 16 riders per train. Time Traveler has spinning trains; a first for a Mack launched roller coaster.
