Voyage track

… Dramamine?

Take a look at this track!

Voyage track

When riding this part of The Voyage, you’re heading toward the photographer. Look in the upper right, in the background of the photo. That’s one of the 90-degree banked curves. Now, mentally continue on the track.

See what happens?

You’re banking the other way.

(And we’re not talking drive-through versus online.)

All part of the theming, I guess.

Can’t imagine there weren’t a few seasick pilgrims aboard the Mayflower all those years ago.

Here’s another look at the 90-degree banked curve; from this view, the train will be moving away from the photographer.

If you’ve checked out our webcam recently, you’ve seen the lift hill is filling out and up quite nicely.

Should be topping out the hill with the highest pieces of structure later this week.

We’ll be sure to give you plenty of notice, so you and your boss can watch on the webcam.

Holidog’s voyage continues. The pup took advantage of our “weekends-only” schedule to visit a famous city.

Woof! I do believe the Empire State Building is even taller than Liberty Launch!

New York City was really big, but the only apples I saw were iPods.

I’m not much of a math mutt, so Times Square did nothing for me.

Neither did Division Street in Manhattan.

During my sightseeing, I visited the Guggenheim Art Museum.

Don’t you think my puppy profile adds to this artwork?

What a shock to see that Cats has closed.

And The Lion King? Sold out!

Look at this marquee! Dollywood’s mascot has a gig at Radio City Music Hall! She is really going places … maybe next year I can invite her to share the stage with us at Holidog’s All Star Theater.

It was an interesting trip, but I heard the phrase “in this city, it’s dog-eat-dog” one too many times! I’m heading home for closing weekend!

Podcasting with Will

We had a grand time hosting the folks from CoasterBuzz.com last weekend.

One of the “extras” on Saturday was the opportunity to sit in on that week’s podcast recording, which we held in our Holiday Theater.

They asked Will Koch to be their special guest (that’s him on the left). He was only too happy to talk about The Voyage.

2005 podcast with Will
To listen in, head over here.

There was one awkward moment, we must confess. Right before the CoasterBuzz podcast commenced, we announced to the audience what we were up to. We told them the “Pop Revolution” show that was usually performed in the theater was closed for the season.

Half of the audience got up and left.
