The whole location thing would be easy to work around with a Dive Machine. I have been to BGT penty of times and when I heard they were building SheiKra in Stanleyville I was pretty shocked because I had no clue there was any room left in Stanleyville, but it fit in quite nicely

The application for the height variance said "France", not "New France". I thought this was interesting since there was a rumor that the LeMans cars were going away (or moving). They take up a lot of space, and are on the edge of the big drop to the Rhine. That would be an ideal area for building a new coaster.

^That makes sense--France doesn't have much in the way of attractions except for Le Mans and a skyway station (and I doubt the big theatre is going anywhere). There are some "virgin" woods between France and Ireland.

But time will tell.

EDIT (for clarification): The Gazette article did mention "France" and not "New France." Apparently, a test balloon was seen floating in the vicinity of Alpengeist, which had me thinking "New France"; however, 'Geist is fairly close to the LeMans Raceway (in "France"), too. Hmm--not sure I clarified anything here . . . :?r

^With the not so great response Gwazi got, I would not expect BGW to get a wooden coaster.

If I recall correctly, isn't there some restriction with BGW and wooden coasters? Aren't they not allowed to build one because of the noise levels and King's Mill? I'm not sure about this, but Im pretty sure there's something with BGW and wooden coasters

^You're probably right, although I'm not certain about this. Anytime BGW builds a new coaster, Kingsmill residents go ape about noise, "that damn amusement park," etc. So a restriction against rumbling woodies wouldn't be surprising.

I guess those folks didn't notice the huge theme park in their backyards when they purchased their $1,000,000 homes. :roll: But Busch does a pretty good job using terrain to hide the "offending" structures from the upper-crust golfing set.

If they do build a dive machine in France, "Surrender To Your Fears" would be a great tagline for the ride :evil:

Here is a newly filed trademark by Busch Ent.
Wonder if it has to do with the new ride going in BGW.
