Holiday World will open The Voyage in 2006, a new wood coaster from The Gravity Group. The ride will be 6,442 feet long, three drops of 100 feet or more, two 90-degree banked turns, a top speed of 67 mph, three trains, 8 tunnel moments and a triple down element.
Read the press release from Holiday World.
About the 3D thing, a lot of you are making it seem like 3D Studio Max is an advanced roller coaster animation program. It is a 3D modeling and animation program that could be used for just about any 3D animation out there... (snip)
It's been said before, this particular animation was done using the NoLimits simulation. There was no 3D Studio Max involved.
On the other hand, 3D animators like BadNitrus could take animations to the next level because he does it in his free time and not under a company's watch.
LOL! Free time! Now that's a good one. :)
J "what free time?" C.
This ride has the potential to be the best roller coaster ever built on the planet. Ever.
I can't wait.
Hey, he's only 2-and-a-half. I'm impressed he figured out how to create an account and submit a post! ;)
Guess I should comment on the announcement since I haven't yet...probably because I'm still picking my jaw up off the floor. I'm always one to look down on anyone judging a coaster before riding it, but I sincerely can't help it with this one; after viewing the on-ride, my gut keeps telling me I just may have a new #1 next year.
Keeping expectations as low as possible, but still...that's tough to do at this point. :)
I find that hard to believe after riding it. :)
I may live in NY, but... WOW. just... WOW.

Ok, I vented so I'll shut up now.
Hey, anyone here have the same problem I do? I've been so excited, I've been telling people around the office about it. The only problem is, I can't say something like, "They are building a 450' phalus in New Jersey that you can ride on for half price with a can of Coke." They must think I'm crazy. All I can say is that they are building one hell of a ride in Indiana.
This doesn't mean that folks won't understand when they stumble off next year. It's just that you have to sell it with sight and sound...not words. Heck, I myself didn't REALLY get the picture until I saw the video.
Sorry, just rambling.
