No, they make them good now. /ducks

Forget throwing a guitar off the ride, judging by the musical style, it seems he got to ride Voyage in 2003!

Holiday World posted a clue as to next year's theme in their HWN Facebook group... I couldn't pass up the opportunity...

I'd go, but that red background made me decide against it

 

Something tells me that will be an enthusiass filled event. I think I'll pass. Sounds fairly good though...

 

It is. But Holiday World makes it so fun that it makes that fact irrelevant. It's amazing how much nice and efficient employees can make things so much better. Where else do you have maintenance workers come up and ask you if you like how their coasters are running and if they can be improved?

 

I think parktrips is referencing a particular "buzzing" group...not the community as a whole...

 

Jarvis "enthusi " Morant!

 

I find it incredibly moronic to state that an entire group of people who peruse another coaster site (of which I'm also a member) might be somehow lumped in with said enthusiasses.

 

If anything, that comment plants you firmly amongst them.

I dunno, every time I went over to that site to simply post about something I had information on, I got yelled at, much like the post above...so what do you expect people to say?

 

Anyway, can we please keep this on topic about Holiday World's event and not talk about CoasterBuzz?

 

Thanks.

I think that club (jeff hates you club) is pretty large Robb. Welcome brother!

 

 

I would like to point out that RideWorld club members can attend this event (one of 9 clubs). We are also the cheapest enthusiast club out there at $10/year.

This might have been mention already but holiday worlds new coaster the voyage is going to break a few records :

8 "underground moments"

24.2 seconds of weightlessness

 

Also it has a 154' drop a 107' drop and a 100' drop. So what does every one think about holiday world expanding and getting bigger?

Welcome to TPR!

 

 

Next time though, use the search feature fisrt. That way, you can bump up old threads about the Voyage, instead of creating new ones.

Ok, so I have gone ahead and merged several Voyage construction and update threads, so if you have new information or want to discuss the ride, especially now that it's opening is only a few months away, post it here!

 

I'll start with some new photos that appeared on the Holiday World Blogthis week:

I just watched the video and it looks Hadesish! Actualy, I did point out some slow points to the coaster which is no surprise to me, but I would prefer a shorter track circuit like the Raven's in which it gives you no time to see whats happening. Im not saying Voyage is going to suck, but its gonna lack that uniqueness I like. Yes, I know im picky...

That was a computer rendering with a program thats known to have higher than normal friction levels for wooden coasters.

 

Plus it an out and back. Duh, it wont have the uniquness of a sprawled out layout like Raven. Unless a triple down into a tunnel isnt unique. Those are just oh so common these days

After rereading all posts in this thread, I've decide to share my thoughts.

 

Thanks Robb for posting updated photos.

 

I confess, The Voyage has been on my mind every day since it was announced. I check out Holiday World's web cam several times a day and am always looknig for new pictures on holiblog.

 

Will the ride live up to it's anticipation? I think it will. The Koch family and Holiday World staff are serious about their coasters and frankly know what they're doing.

 

Concerning the name: I love it. It's a perfect name for the Thanksgiving section. Imagine being part of the first voyage from Europe to America. I also like the name becasue it has 2 syllables like the Raven and the Legend. Plus a coaster ride is a voyage of sorts and this one is sure to be fun.

 

I'll be there opening weekend, Holiwood Nights, and several times throughout the season. I hope to meet many of you there.
