Thursday, March 21, 2013 #723 - Wild Rides, Wild Animals

"Outlaw Run," one of the most highly anticipated roller coasters of 2013 opened this week at Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO.

The new creation from Rocky Mountain Construction has set a world record for the steepest drop on a wooden coaster at 81 degrees.

It's also the 2nd fastest wooden coaster in the world at 68 mph.

Plus, it has the signature element of a double barrel roll that brings the train back into the station.

On this week's show, we talk with Marcus Leshock, a reporter from WGN-TV in Chicago.

Marcus made the 8-hour drive to Branson from the Windy City so he could be one of the first people to ride the coaster.

He'll tell us if the hype is for real and if this new attraction will be a hit in 2013.

We'll also talk with Kristin Siebeneicher, the Communications Manager at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, NJ.

Kristin will tell us about preparations for their Opening Day this weekend and details of their new "Safari Off Road Adventure" that is scheduled to open on Memorial Day.

The combination of the theme park and the land for the new Safari attraction makes Six Flags Great Adventure the largest theme park in the world! So, there's a lot to be excited about.

Plus, we have a Live Trip Report from the Ohana Restaurant at the Polynesian Resort at Walt Disney World and a whole lot more!
