I really like the Legend and the crazy laterals, but I agree that it's not everyone's cup of tea.

I prob liked Legend more than Raven. I really like the bell they ring as they send the train. Wife was beat up after a day of riding those woodies. (Edit: From the coasters...)

We got lucky while waiting in the line the Voyage thre first time cause the second was added. Of course for our second ride a train had to be removed because someone threw up on it. What I didn’t get about that though is why they moved the train to the lift hill to clean it rather than moving it to the transfer track immediately (which they ended up doing) to clean it. So what row were in by the way? Did you happen to noticed someone waiting for the front row at the end of the night wearing a CP shirt? If so that was me and it was the second to last train of the day. I would of gotten on the last train of the day had the group in front of stayed in line.

Why didn't you hop back to another row? I was actually supposed to sit in the seat where the kid threw up. He was directly in front of me.

I had a CP shirt on as well. Once they got it running again they just let us ride the last trains without getting off.

I can't imagine hurling on Voyage at night during that crazy ride.

Also, I discussed the same thing with a couple next to me. Why not just move the vomit train off immediately and run the last half hour with just 1? Instead it looked like they wasted 15 minutes goofing around.

No worries though. Had a great day. I'll be back. And I really hope to make 'Nights next year.

The reason we dn’t re-ride was because my friend and I decided a front row ride was best way to end the day. Had I been alone I probably would if reroad easily.Oh I’ll be returning to HW again also but that will be for the water park also.

I can understand that reasoning. Makes sense.

We did the water park for a couple hours. First water park in prob 25 years. We enjoyed it. We did Wildebeast, Mammoth, and the big cone/funnel looking thing. They were all pretty neat. I doubt I'd ever do more than a couple hours at a water park but I did enjoy doing something different for awhile. The magnetic lifts are fun.

I love the wolf howl too as you're getting ready to drop, I can never help myself either because I automatically howl too without thinking about it.

The Voyage was awesome. My daughter did not agree. After The Legend, I'm surprised I talked her into Thunder Run. The Legend is for masochists. The Voyage was closed soon after we rode it Friday. Not sure if it ever reopened or not.

I’ll be at Holiday World on Monday, July 8th for my first ever visit to the park. Have a few quick questions...
1) How busy should I expect the park to be?
2) Is Splashin’ Safari worth going to? I’m not really a waterpark person but I’ve read some good things about HW’s waterpark so I might have to consider visiting.
3) Any interesting or underrated flat rides I should check out?
