Personally, Since these are two different concepts in wooden rollercoasters. Id have to say that El Toro has a slight edge over Voyage (Ill ride Voyage at Holiwood Nights and Toro if its open in Mid-June)
The layout on Toro looks fantastic as does Voyage, but, on some forums i have read disappointment over Hades, and correct me if im wrong but, wasnt Voyage and Hades built by the same group?
Now, of course that means diddly when compairing the two rides, but I still think El Toro has the slight edge.
What do you think?
I read your post and thought of many in the past. I think that you may have started a post that is a TOS unfriendly. You may want to check them out.
From Terms Of Service..."threads that contain best... favorite... top 10... worst... versus... most... are simply not interesting to read by anyone other than the person who started the topic."
The "versus" caught my eye.
Anyways...I may be wrong.
Having ridden Voyage already, I am still just as excited for night rides on it, and I am one who thinks El Toro is gonna be sa-weet as well. But the moon card is never wrong. ;)
I'm still very excited about El Toro, but after riding The Voyage I just don't see it being better. I mean, I've been on the New England Superman, the other Superman at SFA and, *IMO*, The Voyage is better than both of those. To me, El Toro will basically be a wood version of those rides and that's a really good thing still. The airtime is probably more powerful on the Intamin coasters, but The Voyage just has so much more airtime (19-20 spots) plus it has an intensity level that isn't matched by the Superman rides.
Who knows, maybe I'll feel differently after riding El Toro?
Some people may also be discounting the Kentucky Rumbler a little too much. This is the best year for awesome wooden coasters since 2000 and maybe ever? *** Edited 5/13/2006 4:17:06 PM UTC by Cory Patrick***
Unless Jupiter & Venus are aligned. Duh!

Thanks for the Welcome :)

Yes, Voyage and Hades were both built by the Gravity Group. The engineers at the Gravity Group are the same four that were at CCI responsible for Raven, Legend, etc...
For those that have ridden Voyage - is it a #1? Better than Boulder Dash or ST (in it's prime) or Raven, Legend, Phoenix, Tremors?
I too think this is a great year in wood.
I don't want to get Intamin'D. ;)

El Toro was so pretty looking today at the park. Too bad it isn't complete yet. But I'm really looking forward to both. *** Edited 5/14/2006 5:32:34 AM UTC by bobthecoasterguy***
A friend of mine suggested ride Raven and Legend first, because they are also really awesome rides and then hit Voyage.
Any suggestions for a newbe going to Holiday World?
