  1. Great Podcast! Last I heard HW was giving up on the timberline trains:

    Would love to hear they are still looking at them b/c I think the ride is too rough and maybe that is b/c of the train cars.

    • Yeah, unfortunately you’re correct my friend. We recorded this episode a couple of weeks before Holiday World gave the official announcement that they decided to move forward without Timberliners…it’s definitely a bummer. I’ve been on the Voyage a few times, never found it painfully rough, but extremely intense. It seems that every other year it runs at peak performance due to the refurbishment schedule. As long as they continue to take care of the coaster, I’ll be fine with the clunky PTC trains. ;)

      Thank you for listening and your feedback. We had a blast creating this list.
