NEWS & NOTES
Even if you don’t know your starboard from your port side,
set your sights on a voyage to Aruba during the 20th Aruba
Heineken Catamaran Regatta (arubaregatta.com), which runs
from November 15 to 23, 2013. Watching the sleek boats
slice through the Caribbean water is a vacation experience
like no other — especially if you secure space aboard one of
the spectator vessels and watch all the tacking and jibing from
your own seagoing vantage point. Inland, there are also plenty
of maritime-minded happy hours and dinners, where you’re
sure to absorb enough lingo to convince your coworkers (and
maybe even yourself) that you really are a salty sailor
disguised in office attire.

Sails &
Tales
The Old West would have undoubtedly been
won in a much different fashion had the
stagecoaches traveled at 68 miles per
hour, as they do on Silver Dollar City’s new
1880s-themed Outlaw Run roller coaster
. Besides being
Branson’s latest thrill ride, it’s the only
wooden coaster in the world to twist upside
down, and with a 162-foot, 81-degree,
hair-raising, heart-pounding plunge, it also
boasts the world’s steepest wooden-coaster
drop. So while the storyline for Outlaw Run
and its speedy Western Missouri Stagecoach
Company follows a historical track, this
coaster’s thrills are thoroughly modern.
