Because that the base of the bent itself. Then youll have the angle ledger. I fully believe based on the height of the metal l beams that the banking will be far more than it used to be. Should carry more speed though since that area was very lateral heavy.

^^^That's the plan. It hasn't been officially decided yet since testing hasn't started, but given the fact that the timberliners have run successfully at two parks last year, it's very likely that the timberliners will be installed for this season.

^^These Timberliners aren't like the rest though - they're unique to the ride because of the stresses and strains a ride of this size and caliber puts on them. So just because the regular ones ran well last year doesn't mean that these ones are immediately ready. But I hope so!


Didn't The Gravity Group originally say that the Timberliners were designed with The Voyage in mind?

Holiday World has sent us a press release regarding the relocation of the "Deutsch Evangelish St. Paul’s Kirche" to Santa Claus Park.


A moving company will very slowly transport the 1880 "Deutsch Evangelish St. Paul’s Kirche" for a distance of just under one-half of a mile to its new home in Santa Claus Park. It will join the newly-restored 1935 Santa Statue plus the Santa Claus Museum, founded by Holiday World matriarch Pat Koch, at the site of the original Santa Claus Park.


The church stands 70 feet tall (including steeple and weather vane). It will be moved with steeple and original church bell intact, along with the following contents: altar, cast-iron woodstove, Reed pump organ, native poplar wood benches and pews. The church, which weighs approximately 50 tons, will roll on three sets of dollies pulled by a tractor truck.


(Another historic building will join the church and statue at Santa Claus Park in another week. The original Santa Claus Post Office, built in 1856, will be moved in the same fashion from Holiday World, where it has served as a doll museum since the theme park opened in 1946.) Additional background information is posted here on Holiday World's blog.


They have also confirmed their involvement in a new revival effort for the former Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom led by several members of the Koch family. For more information on that park's developments, visit our Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom Discussion Thread.
