I believe the capacity was marked at 1,000 which is fairly enormous for a water park.

I've gone pantless!

^It should help take some of the heat off of Wildebeest--that sucker has hideously long lines shortly after opening.

Thankfully the one time I visited when the waterpark was still open there weren't many people there so we were able to ride Wildebeest four times before the waterpark really started to get busy. I'm expecting this will be similar which honestly is a great thing. I love Holidayworld and only want its attractions to be super popular. And if anyone can run it at full capacity properly, it's Holidayworld. I'm quite excited to get out and try this out and all the improvements (and hopefully timberliners) on Voyage.

This looks like it will be a good addition to the park.

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

The park has confirmed: NO Timberliners in 2012....now planned for 2013.

The new Timberliner trains for The Voyage will not be delivered to us in time for pre-opening testing this spring. Unfortunately, that means we will have to wait until the fall for testing. It is our intent to fully test the new trains and have them on the track for the 2013 season.

That is so stupid. By next year, all that track work would've gone to waste and it'll be back to being rough.

Has anyone actually confirmed that the original trains are the reason that Voyage has apparently became rough? Just wondering.

^^^ :lmao: :lol: :lmao:

^ I think people are speaking from prior experience and park Q&A's around the country. It's a known fact that those PTC's chew up the track and spit it out with little remorse. This is quite disappointing if only for the reason listed above...one season with PTC's will undue all that great track work.
