The Voyage

Enthusiast coaster & amusement park chatter about whatever. If it's not about coasters & parks, it'll go to the garbage file. Keep it on-topic and flame-retardant, please.

The Voyage

Post by ahoffman50 » Thu Feb 16, 2006 5:27 pm

Have you seen the recent pictures on the Holiblog? They are awesome! I cannot wait to ride this thing. I just showed the video online to my students this morning. After trying several things, this was one of the more successful things to get them talking.

I use random pictures of coasters, right now it happens to be X at SFMM, but typically it is randomized shots of the Voyage...

I normally use my Negative-G Desktop Wallpapers but I had to put that fantastic photo of the Voyage up as soon as I saw it. What a breathtaking view. That coaster is going to rock.

Have Fun

Having been to Mt. Olympus numerous times I could not be more excited for The Voyage. However, it's about a six hour drive for me. At least it only takes me 15 minutes to get my Gravity Group fix! :wink:

Hey Nathan welcome to the forums.

I hear great things about Hades so I don't think I'll get "anticipointment" with The Voyage. They guys at the Gravity Group really know how to make one insane coaster design.

Have Fun & I look forward to reading your posts.

Voyage looks pretty good. I think KY Rumbler might be a little better though - from looks. It looks like a much better ride...

I highly doubt either will be half as good as Vortex though.

someone here has an over-the-top, head-over-heels obsession with Vortex, I'll give you one clue, its Klockster.
and what happened to staying on topic?

I love how the station looks, not to mention how the siding on the Pepsi Oasis looks!

Have you ever noticed that when the Holiday World home page loads with the construction shot of the Voyage in thee upper right hand corner, it says "The Voyager Construction" as the alternate text. I thought it was pretty funny. Sometimes there are benefits to a slow internet connection I suppose.

EDIT: Paula has fixed the typo.
