Voyage's 3rd Train

Monday, June 26, 2006 10:27 PM
DantheCoasterman's avatar I've ridden the Voyage multiple times this year and each of those time it was running only two of the three trains. Does Holiday World not run the third train, or was I just there days when they weren't using it?

Got the third one up and running for second night of HWN's Man did that line move :)

I've heard that with the Q full with three trains it takes 50 minutes to board.

Lets see, Raptor 2.5-3 hr waits on busy days, MF 2hrs. Beast 1.5hrs on busy days.

I'll take that 50 minute wait for that ride any day, Or night of the year!

Do you believe Raptor's & MF's queues are the same length as Voyage's? You shouldn't.

Who said that?
I said the wait, WHEN BUSY for voyage is 50 minutes, The wait for MF is two hours.

Not the line length, The wait time.

MF may have it's own issues nowadays, but you're comparing apples and oranges.

In regards to the third train, I too have not seen it running during my two visits on fairly slow days.

Apples to oranges?

Yeah I guess since Voyage is ten times better of a ride for 1/6th the cost :)

I'm assumimg that on the slower days, 2 trains is probably enough, and it saves wear and tear on the 3rd train.

True dat, but I still like apples just as much as oranges.

a_hoffman50's avatar I have seen the Voyage run 3 trains.

Comparing a roller coaster wait time to a roller coaster wait time is not apples to oranges. Now if he had compared a roller coaster wait time to a flat ride wait time, I could possibly see your case, but still they concepts of wait times are still the same.

All this talk of fruits is making me want a fruit salad... yummy yummy.

Jeff's avatar Raptor and Millennium Force never have two hour waits with a full queue (now that MF is relatively efficient again). In fact, a full queue on Raptor is probably around 90 minutes. I'm pretty sure that queue is bigger than Voyage's too.

Or more to the point, if it's what you're asking, Raptor has higher capacity. MF is probably about the same.

Three trains were being run last weekend with a full queue wait of approximately 50 minutes to an hour give or take.

I havent been recently but I distictly remember waiting 3 hours when every switchback (including the ones by the train station) was open. The line was constantly moving though.

eightdotthree's avatar I think the key phrase in that quote is "(now that MF is relatively efficient again)." *** Edited 6/27/2006 4:25:33 PM UTC by eightdotthree***

^I was refering to pre seatbelt redesign (200-2004) when the thing was a efficiency machine, that line never stopped moving.

The Voyage was down until about 2:00 this past Sunday. Once they got it up and running, all three trains were on the track, but they were stacking them pretty bad. On several occations, two trains were in setting in the break run before they could get the third train out of the station. But the line was still moving very well. Our first ride was just after it opened. The line was down the steps, one lap around the basement, and up to the station, about 10 minutes. Our second ride later in the day, every queue in the basement was full with the line overflowing into the Thanksgiving plaza, but we were still heading up the lift hill in less than 45 minutes.

Raven and Legend were both running 2 trains. Raven was about a 3-5 ride wait all day, and Legend was a walk on all day except for a period of about an hour and a half early in the day when the line shot out well into the queue area.


Life is an amusment park -and I can't get off of the damn spinning teacups!

How often do they run 2 trains on Raven and Legend? They were both running 1 each on opening day. I wasn't happy about this, but at least the place wasn't too crowded.
