Busch Gardens Williamsburg (BGW BGE) Discussion Thread

P. 466: Christmas Town starts on November 11th

Recommended Posts

I personally think I would like Verbolten more than Cheetah Hunt. The theming on Verbolten is probably going to be one of the best I have ever seen (Other than in a Disney park). And Cheetah Hunt is a little to extreme for a family coaster, while Verbolten is in the middle. Go Verbolten!

 

 

Cheetah Hunt is extreme for a family coaster? Can you please explain this to me? This must be a different ride than when I rode it because it honestly was one of the most boring things I have ever ridden. It is WAY family friendly and even kid friendly if the hight limit was different.

^ I haven't heard anything official on this but it does sound like a reasonable response... at least for opening weekend or the first few weeks. They will want to keep capacity high and be as efficient as possible to keep the lines manageable. It sucks for those of us who want to ride in the front but it works out better for everyone in the end... I'd rather take any seat than wait in a 5 hour queue.

Kings Dominion did the same thing when I305 opened to make the lines more manageable. I imagine BGW will do this with Verbolten for the first few weeks of operation (heck, this is standard at Disney).

 

We shall know for sure soon enough.

Psh, whenever I'm at an attraction with assigned rows, I always just keep letting people in front of me until they fill the whole train. Then I always get the front!

I can imagine that Verbolten won't be such an issue with a cramped station or too many people in line at once. There's five trains, and the ride is pretty quick. And I remember when riding wicked at lagoon, it was very quick load/unload.

Might be making a trip down to BGW in early june(not 100% certain yet) & would like to know what the admission costs are this year & if there are any discounts available?

 

Havn't been to the park since way back in 97 so I havn't gotten a chance to ride any of the B&M's there but of course mourn the loss of the two Arrow's that have since been removed especially BBW.

I know this is a bit far-fetched but I think it would be amazing if Drachen Fire has a "return" in where they built a blue-tracked, grey-supported B&M Wing Ride coaster in the same location and name it Drachen Fire.

And speaking of BGW discounts, this was in this morning's Daily Press:

 

As Busch Gardens heads into high tourism season, the discount opportunities for locals are fewer. But if you missed out on the deals available this spring, there are a few new ways to shave off a few dollars from your admission ticket.

 

Chick-fil-A restaurants in Hampton Roads and Richmond have coupons for $12 off a single-day admission to Busch Gardens or Water Country USA. The offer ends June 30.

 

Enter the code BGWFOODLION on the Busch Gardens website to receive a $12 discount on single-day admission.

 

Coupons for $12 off a single-day admission also are available at Food Lion grocery stores. Park visitors also can show their Food Lion MVP card at the park admission window for the $12 discount.

 

If a flash sale on theme park tickets occurs (usually announced on the Busch Gardens Twitter account), I will send a text alert. To sign up for mobile alerts, visit dailypress.com/textalerts. Choose DPFREE.

^Looked on the BGW site & can't believe that it's $66.99 per person this year!! Man is that steep but I hope I can get the discounts at local food lion stores in the DC metro area as that'll bring the price down to around $55.00 instead should we happen to visit the park as planned on june 1st.

^It is expensive compared to parks in the area, but not bad when compared to its sister park down in Florida.

 

Did I read that right that you get unlimited visits for the same price as a one-day ticket through the end of the summer with that Fun Pass??? That sounds insanely awesome!
