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

Oh no, they do not dare... Do they?

 

Very accurate... Intamin harnesses (Raptor, Gardaland).

 

Weird rails and weird train for a Mack coaster (Manta, Sea World San Diego).

 

And the list goes on. Though as similar models has been build, they could have used those for reference...

Looks like Tempesto at Busch Gardens Williamsburg was announced today on the SeaWorld earnings call. Here's from the transcript of the call. There was a typo in the transcript, but the audio says "Tempesto"

I really do not understand BGW's Angle with this ride. Are they going to make this a surprise announcement on opening date? Or are they not doing any marketing whatsoever? (perhaps because of the ride's low capacity)

I guess we will have to see and wait. All about this ride seems really odd.

Considering that they finished building Tempesto back in January, it seems odd that they'd wait until Memorial Day Weekend to open it, though I understand the move from a business perspective.

Hard to say. You really can't tell how much work has been done on the station unless you're inside the park, and the weather here has been pretty bad over the last couple of weeks.

I agree, it does seem very odd but whatever! I guess there must be a plan behind it all. The major positive here is that BGW is getting a solid ride. We all know what it is, it's just the GP that has no clue. Let's just let this one play out! At least they aren't getting a cheapo flat that goes in circles and claiming it as a roller coasters!

Well, we have been talking about it a ton and they haven't even announced the opening yet! We're doing all of their social media for them.

i'm making my first visit the first Saturday in June. i'm curious if anyone can answer if the crowds in early June are similar to that at Kings Island or Cedar Point where they typically are pretty light crowds for Saturdays? Also any tips for this park like special foods i may not be able to get elsewhere?

Crowds are not usually bad there (although I mostly visit for howl-o-scream). Even so, when I do visit in May or June, I've never had bad luck with crowds. Avoid Saturdays if you can. I would hit Verbolten first, then make my way over to Griffon. There's also a shortcut to Verbolten. Head down to Scotland, go past the Loch Ness Monster, walk down the stairs, cross the floating bridge, go up another set of stirs, and you should end up in Germany. You should see it on the map. Oktoberfest is to the left of Germany, by the way. And as for food, there is this awesome homemade pretzel place right next to mach Tower. You have to go there. I hope this helped!
