Looks like they got the Timberliners to successfully ride with "human test dummies!"

They aired a segment on an Australian Travel show called Getaway, and believe it or not they went to Holiday World - Pilgrim's Plunge and The Voyage were featured.

I'm wondering why the train is still missing three rows of seats? And i really hope the missing rows are causing the ride to run that slow!

That's such a unique ride experience, riding with all the water dummies! The trains definitely look cool, very open. I'm happy I got a chance to ride this past summer with the PTCs, because next time I'm there I'll be able to compare! :)

It's also cold and the track didn't sound oiled at all. That's a lot more friction than usual, which will slow it down.

Looked pretty speedy to me! At least until they hit the midcourse where they slowed down.

I'm soooo excited to ride the Timberliners next year, they look great and hopefully are running great too! I'm glad that I was able to get to Holiday World twice this year, can't wait for Holliwood Nights! :b

Thanks for this info! I'm just really excited/worried about this project as I've never ridden Voyage before, but I hope to soon. Really hoping the timberliners keep this thing rocking for years to come
