whoever wondered if the voyage night rides would beat the beast.... that's not the question, as raven night rides hands down kills the beast's. Will voyage beat the raven.... only time will tell.

Looks great, I'm sure rides on this will be better than the Beast. Of course, I've had better nightrides in my car during rush hour traffic in the winter when it gets dark at 4:30 than I've had on the Beast. Its great that Holiday World keeps taking things to the next level, and that the Gravity Group is insane enough to design this! I'm glad its complete. Now maybe Great Adventure can call the Gravity Group and get the workers to head over there and help finish El Toro! :P
All clear....

Dispatch, enjoy your ride.

If Hades was any indicator...this ride is going to be a Beast....and easily trump The Beast...the way a world-class sprinter would outrun an ACE'er.

Before riding this thing, I can say that a day ride with your seat belt tightly fastened and holding on tight in the front seat will beat a backseat, no-selt-belt, hands-up, nighttime ride on The Beast.

Holiday World knows what brakes do. They know that rides can be designed without them (save for Voyage's block brake), and they know how to make a spectacular ride.

The real battle with me will be my No. 1 woodie Legend and Voyage.

Wow. That looks ever so slightly sweet. I'm determined to get on this sometime in the nest couple of years!
