^According to the numbers, there is. In the Voyage construction video posted a few months ago, Chad Miller from the Gravity Group team said that there is now an additional 0.1 second of airtime on the ride bringing the number to 24.3. Its not much, but it will make a difference.
Never forget that this hobby is all about having fun!
If you can't have fun at a theme park riding rides, you need a new hobby.

^Then again, adding airtime to the voyage is like adding water to the ocean :P I'm excited to see what this renovation does to reduce injuries. I don't think I've had a headache that bad in my life...

I marathoned it and only had a slight headache. And that was before and after the JOLT before the last 90 was attended to. Call me a masochist...but I still loved it.

I did make the mistake of riding Mean Streak before it got work in the back and came away with a really nasty headache that took 1000mg+ by the time the day was over to dull the pain.

Also LOL @ anology. Love it.

That looks awesome! And I'll be working in Lousiville on the 10th. Perhaps an extra night and a first ride in the morning is in order. :br

I'm loving how it appears the spinning is amplified during the uphill portions. Should make for an awesome ride. Can't wait to try it out this summer.

That is SOOOOOOO . . . Cool!!! I'll be there in August wearing my water clothes and making sure that I get plenty of rides on Mammoth, and not to forget Wilderbeest, The Pilgrim's Plunge, and any old water ride the park has.

By the way, I love the soundtrack that was used for the POV video. Does anyone know what it is?

I'll go out on a limb and credit the LIMs for that. :)
