Silver Dollar City's newest, secret attraction might be called "Time Traveler." Or "Top Dog." Or something completely different. Aerial photographs taken by the News-Leader on Feb. 15 reveal a vast construction site adjacent to a Silver Dollar City amphitheater, complete with concrete footings and a large scaffolding structure.
A spokeswoman for the Branson-area theme park, Lisa Rau, was not ready to reveal many details about Silver Dollar City's latest attraction — unconfirmed reports of which have been fluttering around roller-coaster enthusiast blogs and on social media in recent weeks.
"It certainly is a ride," Rau told the News-Leader. "However, the make, the style, the attributes, the name — none of that anybody knows, except a secret vault of people." Since February 2016, Silver Dollar City's parent company, Herschend Family Entertainment Company LLC, has filed for federal trademarks including "Time Traveler," "Top Dog" and "Barke." In filed documents, the company has described the trademarks with legal language including "amusement park and theme park services" and "entertainment services in the nature of an amusement park ride, namely, a roller coaster," among many other terms.
