^ It will also get PTC trains, which is something a lot of the other steel structured CCI's didn't have. In fact, the only ones I can think of are New Mexico Rattler and Silver Comet and those both held up pretty well!

Doesn't Shivering Timber's have PTC's? I don't mind the G-Trains, the work with Villain, and they track better, but whatever TGG says I'll go with it.

^ Shivering Timbers is wood structured.

I don't mind the Gerstlauers myself, but PTCs will make for a much more re-rideable coaster I'm sure.

^^ Off the top of my head, I know that Cornball Express and Hoosier Hurricane both have PTCs, and are also both still running extremely well. Much smaller coasters than The Voyage, though.

I believe Great White counts also. Steel CCI, runs PTC's

Morey's wooden coaster is the "Great White." It was running really well when we were there!

This is a 'classic' ocean front wooden coaster. A little rougher than when it was first built, but still a lot of fun!

So would the path to Thanksgiving Land be just past the "tilt-a-whirl" ride? (I forget what they call theirs)

"turkey-chase-themed interactive "dark ride,"

This sounds like a laser gun dark ride to me.

Anyone else thinks the name kinda sucks? "The Voyage" just sounds like some history channel documentary to me. But I can't think of a better alternative - there aren't many alternatives if you want it Thanksgiving themed. Turkey Terror? Pilgrim's Plight? Since there are 3 trains I think they should name them Nino, Pinto, and Santa Maria.

After looking at those videos, and all the pictures, I think we can safely say that this might be one of the greatest coasters ever, and this is coming from a guy who just got back from CP. I have to plan a trip to HW now...

You know, I recall people saying the same thing about "The Legend" when it was first announced....

It is not the first time NL was used for such a presentation. It's been done quite a few times before. The Vekoma Motorbike coaster or the Gerstlauer Vertical Drop Coasters jump to my minds right now...

True, but then a versions was quickly released afterwards, and it was the same quality as the current nolimits. The videos for Turkey-Trip have a much better quality of 3-d rendering than the current nolimits, just look at the trees. If there's a pro version, I wanna get my hands on it. :)

Ted, I'll take that bet if you want about whether that straight track will have any sort of braking device on it.

Name the wager. :)
