^ She's probably busy...or something. ;)


Congratulations Paula, by the time you sit down and read this you'll likely be VERY tired...and pleased. Today is a VERY big day in the history of "that little park in Southern Indiana"...which ain't so little no more... :)

Thanks, Bill. To add to the day, my husband and I had to dash up to Terre Haute, as our oldest son was being honored last night for his performance at Rose-Hulman (he's a junior, double-majoring in EE and Math).

It was nice to take today off!

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.

They now have gatoraide added to their Pepsi Oasis to help out with dehydration.

Have Fun

I still have not watched the video. As excited I am about Voyage I want my first POV to be *MY* POV.

I *would* do the same thing, but since I won't be getting to Holiday World anytime soon, it's the only thing I've got! I only watched it once anyway, not like I'm analyzing every track segment here. ;)

Holiday World is beckoning me...

Yeah, I've watched it several times and I'm not even close to figuring out the complete layout.

...One more week, and I'll experience it for myself. ;) *** Edited 5/8/2006 7:18:48 AM UTC by DWeaver***

^We know, Moosh. ;-) But aren't you the slightest curious?

I have been hearing about Voyage and Rumbler all weekend from various peeps who went to the parks. The reviews have been awesome!

Just curious what the roughness class of this ride is compared to other coasters (Beast, SOB, Mean Streak and such)? Just wondering if it is an out of control fun ride or getting a little rough on ya.

After a hundered rides there's only one little rough spot and my guess is that will be worked on. The Voyage is extremely re-rideable.

The one rough spot is a slam after the hop into the final '90' turn. It is definitely going to be a trouble spot until it is "worked out".

The rest of the ride is very smooth, although it's over all not what I would call the smoothest coaster ever, but no rougher than a GCI with MF trains. :) The zig-zag section after the tripple-down is very fluid like a good B&M dance, but the rest of the ride has very nice laterals tossing you every which way.

Watch out for the twisting hop over the brake run--that's THE BEST lateral moment on the whole ride. We're talking near the brutality of PNE Playland's Coaster. Just ask Frank and Kyle, and especially John. Again, hope you've recovered from that, John. Sorry. :)

I agree. That spot post-3rd 90° stuck out more so than all the other insane moments. I don't know if I would call it rough, but it certainly got my attention.

Thanks for the honest answers. Had some recent minor surgery (left hand) and will be there for Holiwood Nights. Just wanted to know my pain threshold...

Here's hoping that my ("advance") registration is the VERY LAST one to arrive in the P.O. Box at the Santa Claus mail facility....all I can do is try! ;)

Coaster Daddy--just keep your hands in the air and waive them like you just don't care...and sit on the right side of the train. ;)

Very impressive. Based on the video, this baby is relentless from the first drop on. I'll make my first visit to HW on June 16, and it looks like this will be the first year I'll be celebrating thanksgiving more than once! :-))

CoasterDaddy: my neck gets sore sometimes but it wasn't even bothered by that minor slam after the 90's, I did have to brace a bit for it tho. Just keep your hand up and away from absorbing the jolt and you'll be fine. the rest of the ride is as smooth as most steel coasters. Just be prepared to more laterals than ever. It's hard to hold on with two good hands :D.
weeeeee 2 and a half weeks!!

I found that bracing myself on this ride wore me out. Just letting go and relaxing made the ride more enjoyable. Just watch out for that rib-crushing lateral hop over the brakes. :) *** Edited 5/9/2006 1:24:11 AM UTC by Acoustic Viscosity***

Will has them working on that this week.
