From 2007 to 2011, 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 & 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.
