Roller coaster enthusiasts from around the world voted The Voyage the #1 Wooden Coaster on the Planet again in 2011! That's five years in a row!
"The Voyage is an air-time machine, with riders experiencing a feeling of weightlessness for a total of 24.3 seconds," says Holiday World's president, Matt Eckert. "We take the traditional out-and-back layout to the extreme, with one of the steepest drops on any wooden coaster in the world. The Voyage is 1.2 miles long, placing it among the planet's top three longest and fastest wooden coasters." The Voyage also has three sections of extreme, 90-degree banking.
"We've carved out five underground tunnels for The Voyage, which is a world record," says Eckert. "And some of those tunnels are wide enough that we roar through them twice, creating a total of eight 'underground moments,' one of which includes a 'triple-down' feature."
Most dramatic drops on The Voyage measure 154 feet (66-degree angle of descent), 107 feet (51-degree angle), and 100 feet (50.5-degree angle).
