New for 2006!

As my blog quickly descends into geekdom and away from literary thought, I present to you the new coaster, The Voyage, which is going up at Holiday World in Indiana. This coaster is creating lots of buzz in the coaster world, and could overtake a lot of the major coasters that are currently in operation.

The Voyage (okay, so the name is crap...it's part of a new Thanksgiving-themed land at Holiday World, so what can you do?) is a wooden coaster that will hold the record for the most airtime in the world, and it's a whopping 1.2 miles long

You can read all about The Voyage and see pictures here and if you really want to geek out, you can click here and view an POV video.

The Voyage is designed by The Gravity Group, LLC, a relatively new design firm (but with tons of experience behind them) and will be built by Philadelphia Toboggan Coasters, Inc.

Sheeeeeeit!! The virtual ride is all I'm brave enough to handle, but it sure looks like that wild coaster is about as much fun as a person could have sitting down. So, when are you and Sean going out there?

I was talking to Sean about the coaster last night and he said: I bet rental cars are cheap in Indiana.
