Holiday World (HW) Discussion Thread

^^Really? I imagined Intamin would be the most expensive has they've made a bigger name for themselves than Mack, when it comes to big coasters.

Would the mack also be over 200 ft tall? I wonder what the design could be.

 

Production costs are cheaper when you've built so many more. Tooling, machining, engineering, etc.

And developing a lift system that can work for a 200ft coaster. I think back then "MackRush" might be Mack's first try to put a chain/cable lift system into their new trains. Hershey Park already has a great launch coaster so they probably won't need another launch coaster.

Not sure how it would be cheaper for Intamin for any of those reasons when Stakotra Manufacturing Fabricates the Track, Columns, and Trains. lol Does MACK Fabricate all Track and Columns in house? If so, that could explain the added cost as well as their proprietary track design.

It's also a bit rougher because you can't brace yourself for the turns in the spaghetti bowl since you can't see them. Still a spectacular ride though.

 

After a few more rides you'll know the layout and it will be a breeze Still a work out, but you will know where stuff is. I took a friend on her first Voyage ride in the dark at HWN 2011. She didn't know anything about the ride; she was immediately bit by the coaster bug and outrode me!

I gave it 3 night rides I believe. The roughness wasn't too bad, but I got pretty nauseated from all the airtime. I guess you really can have too much of good thing. But that triple down in the tunnel is the best part of the ride at night!

From standing up on Hyena Fall's platform, I can see tons of orange survey markers out in the fields behind there. Looks like it is most likely a coaster.

 

Also, last night at the kick-off of HoliWood Nights, they performed a parody of Do You Wanna Build a Snowman and Let it Go. At the end of Do You Wanna Build a Snowman, they sung, "Should we build another coaster?". The crowd went nuts, but then they just shook their heads and went "Nah".

I'm going to be going to kentucky kingdom this Friday then holiday world on Saturday gearing up for coasting for kids at Kings Island on Sunday. My friend and I are looking for a cheap, clean hotel near Holiday World for Friday Night. Any suggestions?

Hmm the Mayflower did Launch with 102 passengers. Perhaps it will end up being a family launch coaster. I also think another attraction might be announced as well to go in the Thanksgiving area.

^^Yeah, forgot that was the actual number of passengers.

 

Perhaps the wording "one hundred plus two" is a playful way of hinting at a 100ft coaster while remaining historically accurate.

 

^This would also be clever.

I agree. The "hundred plus two" is awkwardly worded, so it must be a big clue.

Just wanted to pop in here really quick to thank all of the awesome folks at holidayworld for another amazing holliwood nights weekend. I will be back next year to check out what I am sure will be another awesome addition to the holidayworld lineup(right raven maven, please).

^^Haha! That was actually my first thought of what Holiday World's first steel coaster would be! Not sure if it would be the best choice, but if they do decide to build an Intamin MegaCoaster then I won't complain!

Anyone think we have a potential name in Oceanus?

 

According to history, Oceanus was the only person born on the Mayflower during its voyage to America, but he died at the age of 3. I think the name fits decently well with all of the hints relating to the power of the ocean, right?

 

"For one so tiny, he is quite loud"... this makes me think this project may be a terra-coaster or something low to the ground. Just my initial thoughts.

I'm surprised Pilgrams Plunge wasn't called Oceanus...

I like it

 

The 66 Days at Sea also refers to the sky a lot as well. So about the whole terrain coaster thing, I am very confused, although since it's Holiday World it will follow the natural terrain for sure.

My whole thought about the terra-coaster is just my speculation. The fact that this project is $13.5m and thought to be a steel coaster leads me to believe that it really cannot be that tall or large just based on cost alone. Add that to the past two days mentioning "one hundred" and you get a low-to-the-ground, quick terra-coaster... in my brain at least haha (which sometimes is a bit too creative).
