The Voyage Wooden Roller Coaster
Land, Sea, Airtime!
This relentless coaster is an airtime machine, with riders experiencing a feeling of weightlessness for a wooden coaster record total of 24.3 seconds. It takes the traditional out-and-back layout to the edge of insanity, with one of the steepest drops on any wooden roller coaster in the world.
The Voyage is 1.2 miles long, placing it among the planet’s top two longest wooden coasters. The Voyage also has three sections of extreme, 90-degree banking. We carved out five underground tunnels for this coaster, which is a world record. 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 an unforgettable “triple-down” feature.
In 2013, TIME magazine named The Voyage the top wooden roller coaster in the nation! The Voyage has also been ranked among the top wooden roller coasters in the world by Amusement Today’s Golden Ticket Awards.
Is it the world’s greatest wooden roller coaster? You decide!
Tips for your visit
Work your way up the wooden coaster ladder by riding The Raven first, then The Legend, then finally The Voyage. For a different coaster experience, don’t forget to check out Thunderbird and Good Gravy!
Wait times tend to be longer for the front or back seats.
Wait till the afternoon to ride, as lines are shortest then.
Catch the best view of the ride from the Thanksgiving plaza.
Don’t forget to leave any loose items you wish to keep, including those in your pockets – especially cell phones and keys – in the designated area of the station so the seas don’t toss them overboard.
For a smoother ride with a view, take a front seat. If more air time is what you’re after, head toward the back of the train.
