2006 Construction Update
December 4, 2005
Work has been progressing on The Voyage's third hill this week. It's a bit higher than it looks because there is a ridge between where I get these photos on the highway and The Voyage at that part sits down in a little draw.
Things are progressing over by The Voyage's station with some structure for the run from the station to the lift hill added this week.
There were trees here last week that have been cleared away for what is to be the Plymouth Rock Cafe which is supposed to be the restaurant down in the new Thanksgiving themed section. It will feature seating inside for when the temperatures are the exact opposite of what it was today (somewhere in the 30's) and will have a seating area out back where you will be able to get a nice look at The Voyage. I hear that we should be seeing more happening construction wise with the Thanksgiving section in coming weeks.
With the trees all gone you can get a new view of The Voyage's return run including its third ninety degree banked turn.
That's all for The Voyage for this week. My hat goes off to everyone that's working on it because it's starting to be the standard cold and wet Southern Indiana winter and I wouldn't want to spend my days out in it. Forget buying them a beer, I want to send them gallons of hot coffee.
