In less than a week my coaster odyssey will take me to arguably the most highly anticipated coaster of the season. Namely, Voyage at Holiday World. Holiday World? You ask. It’s a small-ish park in southern Indiana that had humble beginnings as Santa Claus Land. When it opened in 1946 it was a Christmas-themed park it was the first theme park in the world. Take that Disney!
Over the years it has added other holiday-themed sections and became Holiday World. Today there’s a Halloween section with two renowned woodies (Raven in particular), a 4th of July section, a water park, and a new Thanksgiving section that features the massive Voyage. It’s a hybrid (steel structure and wooden track) wooden coaster that touts some pretty amazing stats and is getting great early reviews by enthusiast on sites like ThemeParkCritic. We’ll see if this baby is all it’s cracked up to be in just a few days.
