Holiday World & Splashin' Safari
Santa Claus, Indiana
2006 Construction Update
September 24, 2005
Saturday afternoon I received a call from Paula Werne; Holiday World & Splashin' Safari's Public Relations Director wanting to know if I'd stop by and meet with a couple of people from a cable/satellite network who were scouting for a park to film. They wanted to meet a coaster enthusiast and I guess Paula had me on speed dial for just that purpose. She also threw in the fact that we'd be walking around The Voyage's construction site and I could bring my camera. So to put it lightly I was out the door in a couple of minutes with my heart pounding harder and harder the closer I got to The Voyage.
I was like a kid in the candy store walking around The Voyage and Will Koch; Holiday World's President had fun with my reactions to the ride.
This is the foundation for The Voyage's station. It is going to be massive. When designing it Holiday World's maintenance department was asked for their input and it is going to end up being three stories tall. The first level will be for the rides computers and workshops. The second level will be for an inspection area so they can get under the trains and the third level will be for the station and storage track. I didn't hear anything as to what the station is going to look like but I'm certain it will fit the theme of the coaster and area.
It's going to be fantastic flying around these turns.
