I've never seen a coaster look like It was going so fast.

It's going to be a loooooooooooooooong month's wait for this baby.

Wow. All I can say is wow. I had to catch my breath after just watching the video.

I'm not going to watch the POV. I want the first POV I see to be *my* POV. Sure I've seen a few construction pics but I feel watching the POV will be ruining the surprise for me.

Glad y'all are enjoying it, tho

Ahh, come on, Moosh. You know you wanna look! Give in to the temptation! :-) As AWESOME as those videos are I never really thought they did a coaster justice.

To be honest I thought about doing the same thing, but I am weak. :-D


I don't mind "working" for Holiday World for free as far as getting people from my neck of the woods to visit, since it's almost as close as PKI, Dollywood, Cedar Point, and several other parks that advertise here. The people that I have "sent" out there have made return visits. My "compensation" will come in a few weeks when I get to eat pizza, visit Splashin Safari, and oh yeah, ride those awesome woodies.

^It looks like Thunderhead with better airtime.

Yeah, whatever. Give me a call on my cell on Saturday and let me know. :-)

I can't even tell you how many times I've watched these videos now. And it gets better every time.

I think I'm out of breath right now! *** Edited 5/5/2006 12:08:45 AM UTC by gatorchomp83***

Does Paula have the best job in the world or what? Spreading all this happiness and excitement literally all over the world, it's gotta be awesome. While I've only been really into coasters for four years now this is easily the most exciting development/announcement I've ever witnessed. Were people this stoked when MF or SRoS opened? Is there anything that's even come close in comparison from a sheer buzz/excitement level?

I only watched the videos once and that's it for me. But as a result I am now planning to arrive an extra day early for the HWNights weekend.

There hasn't been this kind of buzz since 2000. However, 2000 was on a whole other level because you had The Legend, The Boss, Villain, Millennium Force, SROS @ SFNE...

There may have not been one single ride that everyone was so pumped about like The Voyage this year, but there were just so many new major coasters

matt.'s avatar Just as some history, there was virtually no buzz on SFNE's RoS during construction. There were a handful of sites with construction photos, of course, but compared to the hype surrounding the stuff being built all over the country, especially Ohio, SFNE's was just a blip on the radar at the time.

Wow is that thing flying. I am now thinking about adding my first ever trip to Holiday World to my plans for this summer. I really want to ride that.

Just got back from the Media Day. You can read about it in the Trip Reports forum:

But the short version can be summed up like this:

Is it just me or does this coaster redefine the meaning of brake run. Wow I'm just speechless.
Friday, May 5, 2006 1:10 AM
What? That's it? I just don't see why everyone is getting so excited over this coaster!

Just kidding!!! I can't wait until the end of the month. HW was the last park I visited last season and it will be the first park I visit this season, and for a good reason. See you there. :)

Yeah is Good!

I literally feel exhausted after watching the video. It's like at somewhere on the run back towards the station, I'm going "It should've ended a while ago. Please make it stop!" But I don't mean it in a Son of Beast kind of way. It reminds me of the feeling that I got riding S:ROS at SFNE in 04'. It was just mentally and maybe physically exhausting as well from all the airtime and directional changes, yet I still rode it four more times that day.

edit: I hope that Holiday World has the hoses ready, because with hot temperatures and a lot of airtime, people will vomit. I've seen it happen way too many times at Six Flags America after people get off of S:ROS. While I've never had that experience on that ride, the closest I did come to puking was on Apollo's Chariot first thing in the morning. *** Edited 5/5/2006 2:16:07 PM UTC by Intamin Fan***

With hot temperatures it isn't the airtime that makes people vomit so much as the dehydration. And I think Holiday World has that problem covered already. :)

By the time Voyage hits the midcourse-brakes, El Toro will roll into the station!

This really drives me crazy. Hardly anyone has ridden the Voyage and yet we have proclaimed it a masterpiece.

C'mon people, let's not jump to conclusions.
Here is all we REALLY know so far...

-It's a woodie
-Designed by a people with an outstanding reputation for wooden coasters
-At a great park with an outstanding reputation for operating wooden coasters
-With an epic-sized layout that incorporates the best of out-and-backs and twisters
-In a magnificent tree filled setting
-That hides much of the track
-Yet some parts interacts with the guests and queue
-It's got only 8 tunnels (undergound moments)
-One of which had a triple down
-Ok, it has an original name
-And it is placed in a uniquely themed area
-It should have outstanding capacity
-And reliabilty to boot
-And finally the Voyage may, by itself, be the next golden age of coasters.

So why don't we all just relax and let the ride speak for itself...

Showed the video to my folks, and my mother was gasping for breath and looked flat-out whupped by the end! After laughing and gigging through the whole thing!

Quick question for Paula... Will there be any lockers available in the area nearby the Voyage?
