Dear Lord!

Watch the video of the ride! It's FLYING at the end! I cannot wait to get out there.

Wow. It really does fly over that second hill. Still trying to figure out a way to get there from Pittsburgh this year.

My god that thing looks amazing! Can't wait!

Paul -

Did you speed that video up or something? =)

Seriously, I can't believe how fast it's going through the ending... I knew it was going to be fast, but I didn't expect it to be that fast!

The speed over the second hill seems pretty Timbers-ish, at least from the video (that's a really good thing). It's just the ending is mind-blowing.

I can't wait for some POV on this thing!

It reminds me of Avalanche, but on steroids. Sick!

There's no speeding up of the film going on. That is actually how fast it goes. Pretty sweet, eh?

Jesus H. Christ. That thing looks amazing. Wooden roller coaters can really turn and twist like never before. It kind of reminds me of that Chrystal Beach Clone thing... Only I dont think that Voyage is going to be a death-trap.

The video seems to have been removed(?).

Yeah I couldn't get the video to either.

BTW, why do people say "Jesus H. Christ?" Is there more than one Jesus Christ as to warrant providing a middle initial? :)

Nevermind I got it. It must not work in Firefox, only IE.

WOW! I have to assume that was a weight-loaded train because if it wasn't.....KATHUD (sound of me fainting).

I don't care what gas costs...I am going to have to make it there somehow.

H must stand for "Holy"

The video is still up. It's a WMA file and also it is 6MB so you've got to give a little time for it to download. The only way I'd take it down was if it was about to kill my bandwidth for the month.

Have Fun

The video doesn't show up for me. All I see is a broken image.

Here's the link to the video:

Paul, you might want to just put a link to it on the page instead of embedding it.

Man, I won't be able to make it down there this year. I got fired from my job today and lost 3 weeks of paid vacation time.
