Was getting a little choppy in a couple spots but I think much of it was preventive and adjustments to make it last longer.
Personally, I think too much has been made over the 1,300 or so feet of track that received work. Yes, that sounds like a bit of work, but considering how well Holiday World takes care of their rides, I'll bet that most of it was preventive in nature. Besides, how many parks out there actually *tell* us how much trackage is being worked on?
Kudos to Holiday World for building such an amazing, and yes agressive ride, yet knowing how to properly maintain it!
If anything, new trackwork should make the ride faster...although probably not enough to be noticeable...

Has anyone on there ridden Voyage after the Retracking? has it made any improvements on the ride? and which parts did they retrack?
1,300' is slightly over 20%. That's on the high end of *normal*, but in medical jargon, WNL. As we've said, wooden coasters generally get "re-built" about every 5-7 years. That means 14-20% of a ride will be replaced every year. The Voyage is on the high end of average, esp. taking into account that it just had its first year of operations, but it's also a *little* more aggressive than most woodies too. OK, a LOT more.... ;)
