Thanksgiving! wooden out and back - The Voyagedark ride (turkey chase)tilt a whirlaction river - bahari river, 1000 ft long by 20 ft wide, around bahariFood service location - 400 seat airconditioned dining plus outdoor dining I have someone AT the press conference. News feed is out currently.
Steel supported coasters are nothing new - Coney Island Cyclone is a prime example of an amazing steel supported ride. AND Holiday World with Jeff H. have done an amazing job keeping their coasters in tip-top form - I would not let this be a concern - but yes some of the steel-framed CCI's have fallen apart but that has a lot more to do with CCI and certain parks maintenance than steel framed wood coasters.

"So sad they built it with steel supports, by 2009 the coaster will be a joke. Why dont we learn from history? The coaster looks amazing...untill i saw the steel structure.... "
Obviously you don't know Holiday World that well. It is easily one of two top parks as far as wood coaster maintenance is concerned. They never stop improving and maintaining their coasters. It's hard to find a park that babies their woodies like HW.
