Halloween Harvest, or “Howl-o-Scream Lite.” Busch Gardens is sticking with its “reservations only/limited attendance” events with Halloween Harvest during October. This is sort of “Howl-o-Scream

Before this thread derails off course into a COVID discussion, I’ll just keep it simple:  everyone should follow their state and local guidelines.  This isn’t something up for debate on TPR. Now

Chuck, did you enter? Sounds cool!

 

Getting your yard landscaped is one thing. Maintaining it is another. It is rather tempting, though--I'm not much a gardener, and my yard is pretty "meh."

Come on Chuck. At the very least they will remove that shrubbery that encroaches into the street and scratches any car that parks in front of your house.

^They're doing St. Patrick's Day stuff on Passholder Preview Day, so I guess they'd continue that on Sunday, as well.

Quick question: Does the park still have an Irish Dance show? I might be heading out to the park this summer, and since I'm a an Irish Dancer who competes, as well as one who performs, I was hoping to check out the show if it was still around. Plus, I want to see how my school's choreography stacks up.

 

If it's not still around, does anyone have a decent quality video of it?

^Celtic Fyre is still one of the park's shows. It's in the Abbeystone Theatre. The show revolves around a wedding reception in an Irish pub.

^^ I'd recommend it. My friend William worked on that show last season and he scored us seats at one of the tables in the front. Best seats in the house, feels like you are about to get kicked in the face!.

I'm not a "park show" person, but that is the best one at BGW--plus, you can have a Guuiness while you watch it. If you're of age, of course.

Awesome. I look forward to seeing it. Wish the performance side of the sport would show up at more parks, as it's awe-inspiring to watch a well choreographed performance.

Haha, I know that feeling, but from the other perspective. There's been a few shows I've done where it feels like you're going to accidentally kick someone in the audience, even on an elevated stage.

^To clarify, the tables are connected to the stage and the dancers dance on the tables. If you sit there you have to promise not to put your hands on the table so your fingers do not get stepped on.

Hello again!

 

This summer, I'm taking a trip here to BGW and Water Country. I know that the coasters and Vanish Point are awesome, but what flats and other slides would you recommend? DarKastle looks like it would be fun, and I heard Europe in the Air was meh.

 

EDIT: Also, what are some magic seats/rows? (ex. Back of Apollo's Chariot)

Mach Tower and DarKastle are the only two significant flats that you should hit. Everything else is your typical garden variety flat ride you can find just about anywhere else.

 

As for rows

- Apollo is most definitely a back row or close to back row ride

- Alpengeist = front or second row

- Loch Ness = second to back for more legroom and a slightly better ride

- Griffon = front if you wanna hang over the drop, back if you want better ejector air over both drops

- Verbolten = front for a good view, back for a more intense ride. There are effects you can see in the front that can't be seen in the back and vice versa (front does have bigger effects though)
