    By: Tiffany Alaniz


    Just in time for spring break, a vacation destination close to Tulsa is breaking records. 

    FOX23 got a behind-the-scenes sneak peek at Silver Dollar City's latest coaster, the Time Traveler. 

    The coaster boasts being the steepest, tallest and fastest of spinning coasters in the world. It runs 50.3 miles per hour, is 100 feet tall and has a 10-story, 90-degree vertical drop. 

    WATCH: FOX23's Tiffany Alaniz took a ride on the coaster.


    The Time Traveler is also the first and only in the category to have three inversions: a dive loop, a vertical loop and a zero-gravity roll. 

    In addition to checking out (and riding) this new ride, FOX23 is also taking a look at what steps engineers took to make sure families are safe as they chase this new thrill.
