The Voyage - roller coaster   60th Anniversary

Your family will want to gather together for a feast of fun next season!

The world's top "air-time" wooden coaster will be the main course at Holiday World's new Thanksgiving section in 2006!

"The Voyage is going to be an air-time machine, with riders experiencing a feeling of weightlessness for a total of 24.2 seconds," says Will Koch, the parks' president. "We're taking the traditional out-and-back layout to the extreme, with the steepest drop on any wooden coaster in the nation. The Voyage will be 1.2 miles long, placing it among the planet's top three longest and fastest wooden coasters."

A feast of "floater" air-time, The Voyage will feature three drops of over 100 feet, with the first drop's angle of descent a steep 66 degrees. The top speed of the three-train coaster will be 67.4 miles per hour.

"We've carved out five underground tunnels for The Voyage, which is a world record," says Koch. "And some of those tunnels will be wide enough that we'll roar through them twice, creating a total of eight 'underground moments,' one of which will include a 'triple-down' feature."

The Voyage will also have three sections of extreme, 90-degree banking.

And the rest... is gravy.

Thanksgiving themed sectionOther new attractions planned for 2006 include Bahari River, an action river for Splashin' Safari. The Thanksgiving section in Holiday World will be stuffed full of family fun, including Gobbler Getaway, a turkey-chase-themed interactive "dark ride"; a new restaurant called the Plymouth Rock Cafe, a shop, and more.

The Voyage will set sail on May 6, 2006, on the opening day of Holiday World & Splashin' Safari's 60th Anniversary Season.
