Well I am sitting in a hotel room in Kentucky as it is on the way home, beaten, tired, sore...AND COMPLETELY HAPPY! The park ROCKED our socks, and I can safely say Voyage is hands down THE best woodie we've been on to date! Full TR to come.

Thanks so much for the suggestions guys =) Never did get a shot at Pilgrim's Plunge though. Down all day. =(

Don't feel bad, you really didn't miss anything. Besides with PP being down, you got at least 1 more lap on Voyage in. IMO that is worth 10 trips on PP.

Is PP that bad? Or is it just not as thrilling as what a coaster enthusiast would want? Or is it that you’re just disappointed you didn't get as wet as you should of? I thought the only negative was that the splash was not high enough. Is there something I am missing? I was actually looking forward to this ride come the Fall Affair.

I think it has more to do with the ride being sort of a one trick pony. It is just a water ride when you boil it down, though the height is impressive as hell. I will give you that.

We did use the lack of PP running to get another ride in on Voyage. WELL worth it =)

One trick pony is right. You go up the elevator then you go down a hill and splash. That's it.

While it was fun, IMO it is not worth a re-ride. You can get the same felling on any of there coasters first hill, but with them you get the rest of the ride to enjoy.

Dave I will agree with you there. While we were bummed to not get a crack at PP, spending a couple rides onVoyage MORE than made up for it. That ride is so frickin loooong. I was exhausted by the time we got back to the station the first time. ;)

I can hardly believe that some people were able to do multiple laps on Voyage with out a break. I feel that I am a relatively hardened coaster rider and Voyage took my breath away and left me feeling worn out after every ride. I have never had that kind of feeling from any other coaster.

Sorry you missed trying Pilgrims Plunge -- it opened at 4:30 pm and was up for the rest of the day.

Glad you enjoyed the park!

Thanks Paula! We were tempted to hang out a bit more. We saw it testing but even on our way out there were no folks in the boats and we had a looong drive to our hotel since we had to get home today at a reasonable hour (i work messed up 3rd shift hours). But we had a BLAST at the park. You guys run one hell of an operation there. I was so ungodly impressed with everything from the quality of the food to the rides, all the way to the cleanliness. I'll have a full TR here shortly, but it was so awesome we seriously thought about stopping by guest relations to gush about what a great time we had. =)

You guys are top notch and you better believe we'll be back! =)
