  1. I'm not sure what's going on with Finnegan's Flyer, but it's been closed for weeks. Mach Tower being closed isn't as surprising.
  2. ^Yes, they're using the same strategy as they did for Galaxy's Edge: Get the land open with a "D ticket" ride, and get traffic and revenue, while they build the "E ticket" ride. (At least that seems like what they're doing.)
  3. Great job, David! I'm hoping to see this for myself in November (I understand it was crazy busy on opening day). The food does look great, and the Web Slingers is a nice "upgrade" from Midway Mania.
  4. Here's some information from the park about the return of "Summer Nights"--including nightly fireworks and Celtic Fyre! Busch Gardens’ Summer Nights Is Back! Bigger and Brighter than ever with New Live Concert Series, New Daily Fireworks, Electrifying Entertainment and Extended Hours Beginning June 25 Amidst an open-air block party atmosphere, park guests will also enjoy the return of fan favorites such as the high-energy laser lights show “Spark!” and the award-winning Irish dance show “Celtic Fyre®” For 35 nights, guests can stay late and enjoy world-class coasters,
  5. Or "Clyde & Seamore's Florida Chainsaw Massacre." I am curious to see how this event works out. Tampa has done a good job with Howl-o-Scream over the years, and SeaWorld's event will offer Haunt fans something else to do that's a bit scarier that "Boo Bash" or "Mickey's Not So Scary."
  6. I think that Walibi Holland is a strange mix of scenic beauty and some very odd theming--natural spaces, but weird rides and goofy graffiti on some buildings. They did a great job with Untamed.
  7. BUSCH GARDENS WILLIAMSBURG SESAME STREET KIDS’ WEEKENDS OFFER SAFE, FAMILY-FRIENDLY & FURRY FUN Including enhanced health and safety measures, weekends offer scavenger hunts, dance parties, a NEW Julia’s Welcome Party Weekend and more from June 4 to 20. WHAT: Created especially for the youngest members of the family, kids and parents alike can join in the fun at Busch Gardens Sesame Street Kids’ Weekends, including an ALL-NEW weekend celebrating the arrival of our newest Sesame Street friend, Julia. Included in park admission, guests can take part in safe family fun with modified
  8. I've never had an issue with Apollo's Chariot or Verbolten, but InvadR can be a bit of a squeeze for me.
  9. The "big boy" seats on Alpengeist are in the two middle cars of each train (the "diamond" rows in the station). Griffon has two such seats in the middle of each row (look for the double seat belts). Apollo's Chariot doesn't have "big boy" seats to the best of my knowledge. InvadR can be tricky for large folks (I have to give the lapbar a strong yank to lock it in place).
  10. It's good to see Knott's hopping again. I'm hoping to be in SoCal sometime this fall.
  11. Looks like you made good use of the KI's Eiffel Tower in a few of these shots.
  12. Nicely done! Monster looks like a great addition to Grona Lund.
  13. It's been closed since last year. That being said, Gov. Northam announced that Virginia will be relaxing restrictions for fully vaccinated persons on May 28 (two weeks ahead of their original schedule). So, stay tuned.
  14. I'm tempted to say Splash Mountain in Japan simply because it's at Tokyo Disneyland. Other than that, it's a wash, as far as I'm concerned,
  15. ^The state is poised to lift restrictions on June 15, so my first guess is "probably not." Here's an article about what the park is doing to bring in more staff. You can read more here. UPDATE: I did come across a tweet saying that Alpengeist (Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, says the park website) and Loch Ness Monster (not listed on the park website) were currently running. I'm going to the park this Sunday, so I guess I'll see for myself.
  16. Probably Diamond Python at Merimbula's Magic Mountain in Australia. It's a little less than 10,000 miles from Williamsburg.
  17. Thanks for the report. Kondaa looks great. I'm looking forward to the outward banked turn on Pantheon at Busch Gardens Williamsburg, too (looks like Intamin has a nifty new trick).
  18. ^Thanks for sharing that report. The park has been much more crowded since April 1. I don't recall seeing anything in the local media that capacity was increased to 13,000 (only that capacity was still "limited").
  19. I think the maximum is 4,000 guests, which the state allowed them to do during the Christmas Celebration last year (it was 1,000 initially).
  20. Yes, the "one-off" Quick Queue seems to be standard operating procedure for new coasters. I imagine it'll be the same for Pantheon, which will probably join the rest of the Quick Queue rides in 2022.
  21. Hmm--probably Slinky Dog Dash and that was in October 2019--or maybe Cobra's Curse.
  22. I know that Verbolten wasn't on Quick Queue during it's opening season, so my best guess for Pantheon is "probably not," although they most likely built a Quick Queue entrance for it for subsequent seasons. But who knows? Maybe they'll offer a single Quick Queue pass.
