I would like to point out that RideWorld club members can attend this event (one of 9 clubs). We are also the cheapest enthusiast club out there at $10/year.

Voyage Holiday World's New Coaster

Postby BLSTKRDR » Fri Jan 20, 2006 6:19 am

This might have been mention already but holiday worlds new coaster the voyage is going to break a few records :
8 "underground moments"
24.2 seconds of weightlessness :airtime:

Also it has a 154' drop a 107' drop and a 100' drop. So what does every one think about holiday world expanding and getting bigger?

Thanks for the welcome. I've just learned about it and it really surprised me that holiday world is getting a coaster of this size. It seems like holiday world is starting to become a bigger theme park.

Welcome to TPR!


Next time though, use the search feature fisrt. That way, you can bump up old threads about the Voyage, instead of creating new ones.

Ok, so I have gone ahead and merged several Voyage construction and update threads, so if you have new information or want to discuss the ride, especially now that it's opening is only a few months away, post it here!

I'll start with some new photos that appeared on the Holiday World Blogthis week:

I just watched the video and it looks Hadesish! Actualy, I did point out some slow points to the coaster which is no surprise to me, but I would prefer a shorter track circuit like the Raven's in which it gives you no time to see whats happening. Im not saying Voyage is going to suck, but its gonna lack that uniqueness I like. Yes, I know im picky...
