P. 456: Information about Christmas Town 2021!

Recommended Posts

Why are some people mad about this coaster being a clone? Were people complaining about Griffon back in '06 because of it's similarities to Sheikra?

 

3 Reasons:

 

1 - We have to complain about SOMETHING.

2 - We can't just be happy the park is adding an attraction.

3 - We know more about running an amusement park than the people that actually do!

 

Well it's not really a complaint, at least for me. I'm just saying this addition seems really Un-Busch Gardens like

This type of ride is very fun actually! I think the only complaint people are having on this is because it's a clone, but the only other one in the U.S is across the country, I mean it's still a unique ride for now. Also I'm sure Bush Gardens will put its special touch on it and theme it pretty well. I think it's perfect for the park, it's thrilling and still a unique looking ride to the GP, and I assume many enthusiasts in the area haven't ridden Superman:Ultimate Flight at SFDK. I'm excited to see how it turns out!

^I don't think pretzel loops are generally far from pulling 5 Gs. You know, the most a person can take in that position is like 17 Gs so I'd like to see, one day, a pretzel loop pulling maybe 10 Gs?

If the name turns out to be 'Tempesto' can robb make the name automatically default into 'the pasta coaster'

I'm sorry, the only thing I can think of when I hear 'tempesto' is noodles

 

I second this, if the name is "Temptesto" it shall be known as the pasta coaster from this point on. I don't hate the coaster, I just hate the idea of it. Just seems out of place an not Busch Gardens from the get-go.

Verbolten has better themeing than bbw.

 

I disagree. More does not equal better. They did more with the station/queue, that's for sure, but the ride themeing itself is...erm... lacking at best. And the exterior of the "show building?" They didn't even try. I miss flying through that fake village, especially when the audio effects and misters after the final drop were still in.

 

Still, my favorite themeing at that park is definitely Alpengeist, and it's going to take a lot for it to be topped imo. The Loch Ness queue theme is neat, especially for it's day. They didn't even try with Apollo/Griffon (or Drachenfire for that matter, although the station was beautiful before they boarded it up for Hall-O-Scream), so I can say Verbolten is better than those, but once you leave the station, the themeing of Verbolten just doesn't do it for me at all.

I just want all of the theming in Festa Italia to just go away. They could expand Italy or change it to Greece (which would actually make sense brcause of Apollos Chariot and Roman Rapids which would just needs a new name.) The rides could be either scrapped or rethemed. As for 'Tempesto'..... It could have been awesome! The ride will be fun; but why, WHY is it themed to BMX stunt crap for a carnival sideshow act??? How did that actually go through? The theme is just going to clash and make the rest of the land look worse. I love Busch Gardens and i was excited for this ride but now im just annoyed that they didnt even try. They pulled a Six Flags and that is shamful for a park i know is better than that.

I'm sure it'll look better in person than in the designs we have and the animations they'll release. Things will turn out better than they look. I'm being optimistic.

I hope your right. My pessimistic side is getting the best of me and these plans dont help much

^ I can agree with that. Festa Italia is suppose to be festive. That's why there are banners and Flags around that area. It's roman happiness. I don't think the BMX theme works, but the colors they're talking about putting around the station and stuff like that makes a lot of sense.

Apollo was a god in Roman mythology, and he didn't even have to change his name.
