Oh my word!!!

That is the craziest layout I have ever laid eyes on! Shivering Timbers out and back with a crazy Raven like second half.

Simply Heavenly!

Seven car trains!!!!!!!!! then a 66 degree first drop means airtime galore! I really didn't care for Shivering Timbers, and I don't like the big wooden coasters in general, but if one park can pull off a huge wooden coaster, it would be Holiday World. It will be a winner I'm sure, the question is how big a winner will it be.

*picks up jaw off of keyboard*

GREAT GOOGA MOOGA.... Hummananaa... WORK LIPS! WORK!

Please someone verify I'm not dreaming. I have much faith in HW, and I REALLY hope that this doesn't ride as terribly rough as many mega-woodies tend to.

Good god that's a LOOONG ride.

Never thought they would build something like this, coaster looks amazing, but its big...big wood coasters hurt! At least this is has less laterals than Legend and Raven which threw me around a bit much for me.

The waterpark additions sound awesome too, to me it didnt seem like they had to add this much as their attendance and capicity was pretty great when I was there.

Did I see two Hades-like turns in the POV? You know, quickly to a 90 degrees and then back.

WOW! This ride looks so awesome!

As I said before if any park will be able to pull off a BIG wooden coaster, Holiday World is it. Think about what they have done for Legend and Raven have gotten rough. Legend: Running rough so replaced trains, First drop got rough so they retracked it. Raven: Bottom of first drop was getting rough, and 'pot-hole" was becoming more pronounced so they retracked the first drop, last season the rudolph turn was rough and a tad violent so they retracked it on the off season. Holiday world has incredible love for their woodies so it will always stay in top shape, but with those stats I question if the pace will be that great...... I remember my rides on Shivering Timbers got kinda boring after the first about 10 hills, but luckily Voyage has more variety of elements than shivering timbers.

As I said in another thread... Im REALLY surprised that the additions didn't include a Carousel or Ferris Wheel.

With Thanksgiving, perhaps one day they will add a swinging ship called "Mayflower"

"Waiter?"

"Yes sir?


"You've brought me entirely too much coaster."

"Shall I take it back to the..."

*stabs hand with fork* "NO!"
