In 2008, The Voyage was ranked the #1 wooden coaster on the Planet by the readers of Amusement Today.
The third wooden roller coaster at Holiday World and Splashin' Safari is located in the theme park's new Thanksgiving section. The Voyage is 1.2 miles long and provides a record 24.2 seconds of "air time." This steel-structure wooden coaster takes a twist on the standard "out-and-back" layout, adding a terrain-coaster adventure in the "back" half of the ride. The Voyage also includes a record five underground tunnels (some are double, creating a total of eight "underground moments"), a series of dramatic drops (including a 66-degree angle of descent on the first 154-foot first drop), two 90-degree banked turns, and multiple track crossovers. The Voyage includes extreme air-time, extreme banking, and extreme speed making it the ultimate thrill ride at Holiday World.
