Busch Gardens Williamsburg (BGW BGE) Discussion Thread

P. 459: Pantheon opening on March 25!

Recommended Posts

^The bright colors are meant to match the atmosphere of Oktoberfest Village--so, a "moodier" paint scheme wouldn't make a lot of sense. I like contrast, myself, so I've appreciate the little touches of how the Black Forest is intruding on the station.

 

Ok that makes more sense to me now thanks

It would be really cool if BGW spent the next three or four years not adding new attractions, but expanding upon the theming in the other areas of the park, bringing them up to the standards set by the Oktoberfest renovation.

^ That doesn't get people through the gates like new attractions do. I'd agree with this if they were to add atleast a little something to the park each year such as a flat, new 3D movie, kiddie expansion, ect. along with adding theming.

 

BGW does not struggle to get families through the gates.

I'm liking the looks of Verbolten, I really like to see some testing footage of the ride does anyone know when this will begin?

 

I'm also from united kingdom, and we have a very similar attraction called TH13TEEN, But this coaster seem to be a much better version. I hate when people discuss about how Busch Garden copied the whole 13 idea with the drop section. It muddled with my mind quite a bit when I heard on the video about it's the "First of it's kind, They had to come up with name for it because it hasn't been done before". That exact saying confused me a little however, I can't wait to try the ride out for myself.

 

One more thing before i finish here. - When Does Verbolten Officially open to public?

^A huge grain of salt--BGW rarely "soft opens" a ride. These rumors pop up whenever the park is building a new attraction.

 

Definitely on the "believe it when I see it" list--but I may be surprised yet.

The park has been testing the ride, but hasn't posted any video of it as far as I know. When talking about the ride, BGW usually refers to Verbolten as the "first of its kind in the U.S." (or something along those lines).

Some testing has already begun, at the Hardhat tour they mentioned that the train had already made the circuit and they were fine tuning the drop track. I'm pretty sure they're doing the bulk of the testing, if not all during the week when the park is closed to the public. The drop section is the first of it's kind in the states, but not the first of it's kind worldwide. It opens on May 18th.

Zierer has never done this type of ride before, making it a "world first" unless Legoland Germany's Polar Coaster opens up first.

Mach was soft opened last year, but then again that ride experienced a pretty long delay beforehand. The park may follow up with V-bolt, but we should just wait and see.

^I don't think of the Mach Tower situation as a "soft opening." It was more like the park finally decided "OK, this thing is finally ready--everybody get on!"

 

I'm not saying that a soft opening for Verbolten is impossible--only that I'll believe it when I see it.

Soft-openings usually only happen at the Florida parks correct? (Universal, Disney, BGT) I can't remember if Cheetah Hunt had a soft-opening or not.

 

I agree with Chuck about Mach Tower. It was delayed so much that the park just decided to open it without any fanfare.
