The New For 2006 Voyage Rollercoaster at Holiday World, Santa Claus, Indiana

The Voyage's second hill has grown this week.

There's been work going on both ends of The Voyage.  On the opposite end of the ride from the second hill they have finished the bottom of the lift and even got the structure up for the cross over.

Like I said last week that it is going to be a pretty tight fit where the return track crosses over the base of The Voyage's lift.  You can see that there won't be much beneath the crossover track but a few beams to hold the track up.

I'm not really sure what they're up to over here.  The area with fresh dirt was dug out earlier in the week and then today they were filling it back in.  I thought that was where The Voyage's second to last tunnel was to be but I could be wrong.  Also I still have no clue as to what the concrete structure to the left of this photo is going to be.  If you have an idea please email me.

Here's the VBC (Very Big Crane) that's been working on the taller parts of The Voyage.  My thoughts are that we won't be seeing this much more as it was rented to take care of the parts of the structure over 110 feet tall.  Now that those sections are complete it will be leaving and that is why it is down in the employee parking lot rather than up in the woods where it has been for the past few weeks.

That's all for this week.  Check back soon for more Voyage and Holiday World's new Thanksgiving themed section updates.
