Holiday World (HW) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Apparently Gravity Group is using a new technique in the design of their rides because many people have claimed that Hades is odddly smooth. Very smooth.

 

They are doing something with the fabrication of the wood rails and steel running rails (well duh) and its supposed to prolong the life of these rides and make these MUCH larger wooden rides more stable and longer lasting.

 

 

 

I must say the few POV stills Ive seen of Hades do stand out as "different" I just cant put my finger on what.

 

 

 

Lets hope this is both true and works out. We could see a newer age of larger wooden coasters.

 

 

 

I also find dragster to be a good rush. I love a good speed feeling. Height does nothing for me however. But I love going fast.

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...

Oh my sweet Jesus. I think....I'm going to cry. That looks incredible, not to mention work is going at a great pace. Can't wait to see this one finished. This should be shown to Six Flags Great Adventure, make them get a move on constructing the new Intamin wooden.

The track looks so strange with out it's rails on , it kind of looks like a flume. Could you imagine putting plywood on the track instead of rails and riding it on a skate board :shock:

 

you will see me on the news..."person rides down a coaster track with a skate board"! Wow! there would be so much speed :mrgreen: And I though going on a 35 ft. Half Pipe was extreme :shock:
