Have you ever been involved in a roller coaster race?  Come this fall in Branson, Missouri you can be a part of the family travel experience at Silver Dollar City.  Held in conjunction with The Rollercoaster Race Company, it is scheduled for October 11-12, 2014.

Silver Dollar City’s Rollercoaster Race will feature other componenets as well, including a traditional hald marathon and 5K race.  You may be asking your self what the rollercoaster race means exactly?  It works similarly to a tradtional 5K race.  Participants will be given an indenifcation wrist band and distance will be tracked via score card.  At the end of the day, those who reach five kilometers on a roller coaster will receive a medal. 

The concept is definitley a different one, but I like it.  Using the coaster tracks as mileage generators for the particpants makes it easy and fun for families to do.  This year’s event is already looking to be a popluar one.
