The Voyage is a hybrid roller coaster located at Holiday World in Santa Claus, Indiana, USA. The ride has the most airtime of any wooden roller coaster in the world, with 24.2 seconds, in addition to three 90° banked turns and a 66° first drop. It opened in 2006.

History[edit | edit source]

During construction, National Geographic spent a day filming the roller coaster and several interviews for a documentary titled Coasters: Riding Into the Extreme.[1]

Holiday World announced that for the 2010 season, The Voyage would receive new Timberliner trains from The Gravity Group.[2] The trains were not installed, and in August 2013 the park stated that the Timberliners would not be installed.[3]
