Don't miss is an understatement. The only Wooden Coaster that is better than this would be El Toro. The air, intensity, and amount of track in tunnels is insane,
This is one of the top rollercoaster I have ever ride my favorite ride
Easily The Best "Wooden" coaster out there. This ride has everything. Huge first drop, Banked turns, tunnels, and a long fast ride. It felt almost like a steel coaster as smooth as it goes through the curcuit.
This is the best woodie out there!!
Me and my family go to holiday world almost every year and i ride every new ride. i first rode the voyage in 2009 and I enjoyed every second of this ride(even the slow lift hill!)I Rode it 3 times that day, 2 times in the front. Will Koch was a genius at designing wood coasters. it is a shame that he left us so soon. the voyage will always be my favorite coaster unless i find a better coaster(which might be impossible!)
When I departed on my recent coastering road trip, I reflected on which ride I was most looking forward to riding. That ride was undoubtably Voyage, so when I arrived at Holiday World on Day 2 of my trip, I decided to end the suspense and hit it up as my first ride of the day. Walking quickly towards the back of the park and that awesome lift hill, I managed to get on the second train of the day. I cannot recall exactly where I sat, but it was somewhere close the the very back. Up the lift hill we went, and despite its height, it took a surprisingly short time to climb the 173' to the top. The ride that followed was nothing short of amazing...the height and airtime of the first 3 hills are good enough to rival any out-and-back, but it is this ride's middle and closing portions that set it apart from other wooden coasters and put it in a class of its own. The tunnels and turns in the middle of the ride are ferocious, relentless, and attacked with amazing speed. Roughness is present, but it is controlled, and hey, it's a woodie...it wouldn't feel right if it were too smooth (that's what hypers are for!). The mid-course brakes, if they are to be called that, are placed almost at ground level, so that the coaster gains speed once again by plunging through yet more underground tunnels, this time in the form of a triple-down performed mostly in the dark. When you do reach daylight again, it is to find that you are moving at an incredible pace for the 2nd half of a coaster, and this pace is here to stay...if anything, the ride simply gets faster and faster throughout the entire second portion, relenting only when you hit the final brakes. Again, there is some roughness, and I received some rough jarrs here and there, but never so much that I would call the coaster "rough." By my 4th ride of the day on this beast, I was fairly worn out physically, but I had also ridden the other 2 woodies in the park a combined 4 times as well, so that was probably inevitable.
Comparable in many ways to Millennium Force, Voyage never lets up, with regard to speed or intensity. Ultimately, I was left with a phenomenal coaster that sits firmly in my Top 10 at #5, and my #2 woodie, behind only the legendary Coney Island Cyclone. If anyone had doubts about making a trip to Holiday World when they "only" had Raven and Legend (as I did), Voyage should erase any ideas of skipping it from their mind. Holiday World is an amazing park with 2 other unbelievable coasters, but it is this largest and newest monster that looms in the back of the park that resides in a league of its own.
One word discribes this ride, WOW. The coaster is fast with lots of air time, when ridden at night its nothing shy of amazing.
I was so pumped to ride this coaster. Before they built this ride Holiday World looked like a cool park but not one I could justify making a trip for. But when I heard about this coaster and saw the on ride video...I had to get there. So I entered the park and headed straight for it, it was hot that day (100 plus degees) and I wanted to avoid waiting for it later in the day. But the coaster was having problems and didnt open with the rest of the park. It started running midway through the day and I finally got on around 4. The first few elements of the ride are perfect...huge hills with very powerful forces. But when the ride starts to head back towards the station its roughness really starts to show its teeth. The overbanked turns caused massive jack hammering that wasnt pleasant on such a hot day, and that roughness got worse the longer the ride went on. So thats why it gets a less than perfect score from me. It is by far the most intense coaster Ive ever been on, but it was also one of the roughest. Based on a lot of the reviews here it seems like I may have just gotten a bad ride on it, and trying it on a cooler day might raise its score.
Insane and incredible wooden coaster that is my second favorite wooden coaster out there. The first drop gave incredible ejector air, as did the following and massive hills. Then came the fast and furious turnaround that combined laterals with some air time. Afterwards was the bunny hill finale that had great air time as well and also I love how the ride traveled through the woods. The ride was a bit rough at points, but nothing really unbearable to ruin the ride.
This ride is what Holiday World needed. When Holiday World built this ride they were in the expanding process and in my mind the Voyage exceeded mine and Holiday Worlds expectations. Now for the Voyage, the long hill up is actually very nice its smooth and you are moving up the hill quickly. The first three hills are where the "air time" comes in. Those hills get you out of your set and ready for the 90 degree turns.
Those Turns are very cool and the coolest thing about the Voyage is that you can almost see inside the waiting lines and see the people waiting to get their chance to sit right where you are... ON THE VOYAGE!!!
