Voyage Trimmed!?

Saturday, August 4, 2007 1:36 PM
Aww, say it isn't so!

Apparently, the MCBR grabs pretty hard these days. (and there is recent video floating around showing the grab)

So is this a good thing (as in 'the ride was too insane before') a bad thing (as in 'the ride was insane before') or a neutral thing (as in ' the ride will still be insane')?

Edited for clarity. :)

Sounds to me like a neutral (let's not have to do any more retracking for a while) thing.

Pure specultation on my part.

There's a video over in the TPR Midwest trip thread showing it grabbing it pretty good.

Also saw a report that the triple down only has a little bit over floater air.

Hopefully they'll have it off for events and stuff...although I hear that it doesn't really affect the ride too much.

^I was thinking that, but wouldn't dare type it out for fear of jinxing it before I ride.

I was really disappointed with how hard the trim would grab. After hearing how it wouldn't be used during construction, then spending all the money to get to the park last week, only to have the MCBR grab like Goliath. The ride was still amazing, and I liked it better in the front seat than the back, although I could tell the triple down would probably improve the backseat ride quite a bit.

Thanks for letting me pout a little bit.

After I rode the Voyage last summer, I wondered if it would become the new Beast (meaning it would achieve legendary status).

Now I hope it doesn't become the new Beast (trim, tunnel, trim, tunnel, trim).

I think it's already gained legendary status, even with this news. As a fan of the ride, I'm actually happy to hear that this trim is in place. I know.. I know...

That said, you can pretty much guarantee HW will not use it during events, and isn't that when most of "us" go anyway?

Yeah, imagine traveling 1,800 miles for a closed X!?! So I know where you're coming from...

But as for The Voyage, I think HW's eyes were a little too big for their mouth on this one...and while the news is disappointing, as long as HW gets their custom Euro-fighter either next year (or 09 at the absolute latest!!) I'll feel satisfied... *** Edited 8/5/2007 12:26:25 AM UTC by tigellinus***

I think y'all are overreacting. I'm holding off on judgement until the park makes an official comment.

I saw that video too and it does look like it grabs really hard. My question is, when did it start? I was there June 29, and we just went thought the mcbr with no problem. Probably to save the ride so they don't have to do a massive retracking like they did before.

I was there on July 7th and did not notice the trim.

My guess is that the turn after the 3rd 90* turn continues to be a problem and they're TEMPORARILY using the MCBR as a trim until the end of the season when they can rip apart that section and do something -- i.e. additional reprofiling -- to solve that issue.

They should just buy some Millennium Flyer trains for it, and that would take care of all the problems. ;)

Not to sound dumb but...what exactly is going on with the Voyage? Also, when are they going to announce the Golden Ticket Awards?
