Photo: TR Holiday World Media Day

Postby coasterdave » Fri May 05, 2006 3:54 pm

Had the chance to attend the Media Day for Holiday World this past Thursday for Coasterfanatics. I will have a full review later up on Ted's site as soon as I finish it, but just wanted to drop afew pics and a short view of the ride.

After 43 rides I can say the Voyage does live up to the hype that surrounds the coaster. It is fast and intense. There is some good air time on it and that will increase when the coaster gets broke in. The turn around is just intense and as the day went on, it got even more intense. I can only imagine how it will be at night.

The second part of the ride is just plain insane. It all starts as you exit the safety brakes into the triple down and gets out of control by the time you go through the tunnel by the station. Then there is the part where the train blasts straight out of the tunnel into the daylight and into the last part of the ride.

I can only wait till Hollywood Nights.

Enjoy the Pics guys.

DEAR LORD! That thing is on crack! I knew this was going to be the coaster to talk about this year, but I didn't think it was going to be THAT intense! WOW!

Don't let this donkey melt you with its laser eyes!

The Voyage is definitely one of the most intense coasters on the planet. Some of the turns you are thinking "that just isn't right!". For just sitting on the train, you come of the ride very exhausted. As for airtime, I dont think you could top it even if you put 3 shivering timbers together. I counted 21 spots of air where my butt left the seat. With several of them lasting close to 3 seconds, I would say there is definitely more than 24 seconds of air on that baby.

Get out there and ride it as soon as you can. You will not be disappointed.
