Powder Keg: A Blast into the Wilderness is a S&S Worldwide steel launched roller coaster located at Silver Dollar City, Branson, Missouri. The ride originally opened as 'Buzzsaw Falls'. However, in the 2003 season, they closed the ride down, and started construction on Powder Keg. In the 2005 season, the ride was opened. Launching riders to 0–53 miles an hour in 2.5 seconds.

DesignEdit

The ride starts where the train slowly leaves the station. Then, the track moves to the left. The train is then placed into position, and it launches. It then goes up an air time hill, and is then dropped again, being put into another hill. It then turns, using the track left from Buzzsaw Falls, and then enters the chain lift. It gets lifted and then has a pre-drop, turns, and does the final drop. Entering a helix then into the brake run.
