 Review of Legend @ Holiday World
2 Rating Posted by: shag9004 on 9/19/2007 8:13:00 PM
Date Ridden: Labor Day of 2006 and 2007. Times Ridden: 8 in all areas of the train.

This finishes up my tri-fecta of reviews concerning the great woodies at Holiday World. While the Legend is my least favorite of the three, the term "least" truly does not apply. The Legend is simply a big, long, fast, hard ride throughout the woods of Santa Clause, Indiana. The ringing of the large bell in the station house, the slow climb up the lift hill, and finally the howl at the very top through the speakers right before you take a twisting dive straight into oblivion. All of these items are small touches which take the Legend to the next level. Every seat in the train gives a great ride with the front being the best for visuals and the back being more intense with more airtime. For some reason, I find the middle of the train to offer the best combination of elements and a remarkably comfortable ride through the park. The only problem the Legend faces is its two neighbors on either side which make it a very overlooked ride. To me its a similar ride albeit a better one than Ghostrider at Knotts and the legendary Beast which Im going to ride this weekend. In any other park, this would be the primary attraction around which thrills could be built. At HW, this is just a 3rd great wooden coaster. My only problem was that for some reason the lines are always the slowest here despite the normal two train operation. The Voyage lines are normally longer but quicker and the Raven line is always quicker despite normal one train operation there. At all 4 of my visits to the park, we waited 10-15 minutes for Raven, around 15-20 minutes for the Voyage, yet wait times for the Legend have always fallen in the 30-45 minute range hence the lower number of laps I have taken on it. Its still definitely worth its ranking and I look forward to more trips to one of my favorite parks.
