The Voyage is Getting Off Season Track Work
The Voyage at Holiday World is the world’s #1 rated wooden roller coaster. It is getting some off-season track work which includes some smoothing out track at the bottom of the first couple of hills and even replacing one section of track. Some of the track has moved up to a quarter of an inch which doesn’t sound like much at first but is noticeable at 67.4 mph. The first part of the spaghetti bowl turnaround is being replaced with an identical section of track. The ride holds the world record for most airtime with 24.2 seconds, it will now be increased by an incredible 0.1 seconds of airtime bringing it up to 24.3.
The Voyage will also be getting new trains in 2012, custom-made Timberliner trains for Holiday World! Here is a video of the ride’s construction so far.
And here is a POV of the ride:
