^I remember reading what they considered airtime when they came up with that number. I think it was something like 0.2 g or less. I'm not sure. In any event, it's not Intamin-style airtime by any stretch of the imagination.
"There's nothing wrong with it. It just needs some tweaking,"
Doesn't The Voyage always run well in the beginning of the season only to have those PTC trains tear it apart by summer? I'd wait until seeing how it is running in July/August before getting too excited. It would really suck for the park to spend so much money on re-tracking only to have those trains undo everything in a couple of months.
^Normally yes, but last year I visited right around this time in May, and the Voyage was already terribly rough (at least I thought so). I remember walking off with a bad headache after my two rides last year. This year was much improved. I'll be going a few more times to see how the trackwork holds up, and of course to check out Mammoth, which looked amazing up on that hill!
^The opposite for me, I thought it was going to be a little taller. Still, it looks like a lot of fun, and something to be able to get a good view since it's at the top of the hill (as long as the trees don't block too much).
The Voyage last year was honestly kinda brutal. I was able to go for 5 rides (each of them non-consecutive) last year. My dad rode it once and called it quits for the rest for the day. It was too much for him.
I still love the Voyage, and i'm glad to hear it's smoother in parts.
Holiday World has sent us a press release regarding the selection of the winning family of their "Super Fan Family" contest.
-Producers for the Travel Channel will travel to Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari this weekend to shoot an episode of their upcoming series, “Extreme Water Parks.”
“We’re told Mammoth – our new water coaster – was top on their list for this new show,” says park president Dan Koch. “We’re held a video contest to search for featured riders for the upcoming shoot.”
Winning The park’s “Super Fan Family” contest drew videos from dozens of families. Park officials submitted their five favorite videos to Travel Channel producers, who chose the Julian family of Paducah, Kentucky, as the winning entry. (View their video here: http://youtu.be/E6xpx9X2OCs.)
The Julians, parents Dale and Esther plus sons Caleb and Jacob, win season passes, HoliCash, use of a Bahari River Cabana, overnights in one of the new Rudolph’s Christmas Cabins at Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort, plus the opportunity to be the featured Mammoth riders during the Travel Channel shoot.
“Anticipation for Mammoth has been huge,” says Koch. “We can’t wait to see the Julian family take their first rides with the Travel Channel cameras capturing every splash, laugh and scream.” Mammoth is a record-breaking one-third mile long, with seven hills, including a steep 45-degree drop. Six- and eight-passenger boats are propelled uphill by linear induction motors.
The Mammoth episode of “Extreme Water Parks” will air on the Travel Channel, which is available in nearly 96 million U.S. households, later this summer.
Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari, named the nation’s #1 water park by TripAdvisor.com, will open for the daily season on May 11 with the premiere of Mammoth – the world’s longest water coaster. For more information about the parks, visit http://www.HolidayWorld.com or call 1-877-Go-Family.
