Larry Bleiberg wrote a special story published by USA Today called “10 Best: Roller-coaster rides of your life” in which Outlaw Run was included.
The ride at Silver Dollar City is the only wood coaster to twist upside down three times, the world’s steepest wood coaster with a drop of 162 feet at 81 degrees and is the second fastest wood coaster in the world with a top speed of 68 miles per hour.
The USA Today article quotes Paul Ruben, editor of Park World saying, “Things are happening faster than you can set up for them. You go through a loop, and before you realize it, you start to do something else. When you get to the end, you say ‘What just happened?'”
Outlaw Run was also voted Best New Ride of 2013 Worldwide by Amusement Today and came in at #7 on the list of World’s Top 50 Wood Coasters.
