Glad you guys are having fun! Great TR’s!

I’m sure there’s probably someplace obvious I can find the answer to this that I haven’t thought of, but what’s the itinerary for this trip, as in which parks are you visiting and when? Is there a link I can follow?

Can’t wait for the next installment of this trip :)

Couldn't agree more with your guys view on Twisted Cyclone, it's an absolutely amazing ride that doesn't let up! Looks like everyone is having a fantastic time! :)

A solo night ride on Fury is one of the most huantly beautiful things there is! It's a little scary because you are all by yourself, and it tends to be quiet, but it's amazing because its fury!

Next stop: Busch Gardens Williamsburg! Our day started with filming on the three B&M coasters: Griffon, Alpengeist, and Apollo's Chariot and ended with some night ERT on their fairly new wooden roller coaster, Invadr! Check out some photos and video...

Image
Greetings from Busch Gardens Williamsburg! TPR is happy to be back to one of the most beautiful parks in the country!

Image
We’ve started our day doing some filming on three coasters! First up... Griffon!

Image
Gotta love the water splashdown on Griffon!

Image
Next up was Alpengeist! It’s an amazing inverted coaster... and it’s themed to skiing! LOVE IT!

Image
Alpengeist is over 20 years old now and it’s still intense and very well themed!

Image
Our rides on Apollo’s Chariot this morning were fantastic!

Image
Apollo’s Chariot was one of the very first B&M hypercoasters and it still delivers a super smooth, fun ride!

Image
So many happy TPR riders on Apollo’s Chariot!

Image
Back seat POV!

Image
Every time I go to England it looks just like this! :lol:

Image
When it is hot outside, this roaming team of “water misters” travel around the park spraying guests!

Image
Look! Even Kristen is riding coasters today! :Pr

Image
Image
Love that Busch Gardens has a pressed penny machine for most of their roller coasters!

Image
I really like these triple launched coasters from Premier Rides!

Image
Image
Image
Do you dare brave the Black Forest on Verbolten?

Image
Image
Let’s just say we got at least a “little” wet on the Log Flume today! :lmao: It’s ok... we needed it!

Image
Image
Image
Grogan’s Pub was a popular hangout for TPR today!

Image
Image
Image
The three B&Ms of Busch Gardens Williamsburg is a wonderful collection of roller coasters!

Image
The group loved the new Battle of Eire VR attraction!

Image
And they thought the head gear made them look sexy! What do you think?

Image
Image
The Lochness Monster is 40 years old and it rides just like you would expect a 40 year old Arrow Dynamics coaster would ride! ;)

Image
I love how photogenic Griffon is!

Image
The theming around Invadr looks GREAT!

Image
Wonderful design that really adds a lot to the attraction!

Image
Image
Night time ERT has begun on Invadr!

Image
Invadr is kind of a “wooden family coaster” as it only has a 46” height restriction.

Image
GCI did a wonderful job with this one. Super fun ride without being too intense for younger riders!

Image
Image
Huge thank you to the Invadr crew! We had a great time hanging out with you guys!

Now, POST YOUR COMMENTS!!!! After all, we took the time to write this report, the least you can do is post something nice about it! :P

Invadr at night was all kinds of fun! Not sure where it’s heading as it snakes in and out of itself close to the ground.

The drop thru the wooden tunnel before it starts picking up speed as it just zips along the course, with several double up hops? Loved it

Incredibly re-rideable and perfect for families that don’t want to brave the higher coasters yet

A hit for me at BGW

Great report! InvadR really is a nice woodie for their collection.

I loved the roving water misters. That must have been glorious in that Virginia heat.

BGW is such a beautiful park and IvadR is a fun ride and great for the families there. Great addition to go along with Griffon, Aplengiest and Appolo's Chariot.

Really enjoyed Invadr when I (finally) rode it this year. Makes me really excited to ride White Lightning at some point.
