Busch Gardens Williamsburg (BGW BGE) Discussion Thread

P. 455: Opening night of Howl-o-Scream!

Recommended Posts

Saturday is unavoidable. We are doing BGW on Saturday then going to KD Sunday. Which I also hope is a light crowd day for them because they are closing at 8 that day.

There's always Quick Queue at BGW and Fast Lane at KD, if you need them. KD on Sunday should be OK--just get on Volcano first thing.

I would definitely do Quick Queue or Fast Lane but this trip is on a tight budget so that probably won't happen. Volcano first got it, should I go straight for Tempesto to as well at BGW?

I wonder if there will be pot stickers at the Far East kiosk?

 

I'm also looking forward to Tempesto, as I rather like Premier coasters.

Tempesto should be a great ride - it's just going to be a coaster that's a "must ride first" and/or only go to the park on non-crowded days to ride. So basically, Tempesto is taking Volcano's title for being the most pain-in-the-ass coaster in Virginia to get a ride on.

 

Also, the location of the ride is making BGW look like a Six Flags skyline from the parking lot, but I'd rather not start that conversation again.

Read on another coaster site that Tempesto will most likely have OTSRs in addition to the lapbars (probably similar to the ones in the leaked concept art). If that is true, then there goes any hope of airtime .

Two things.

1) Its concept art and speculation. Wait and see.

2) Airtime is not determined by restraints in the least. By that logic, Maverick has no airtime. "Airtime" simply means the sensation of negative g-force, not physically coming out of your seat. Does El Toro not have airtime when you're stapled, which is every time?

Yeah, I guess it'll still have airtime, but I don't see the point of OTSRs on this coaster since all the other clones have done just fine with only lap bars.

I think it's weird that they still haven't made an official announcement after finishing construction on it over a month ago. Maybe they have some big plot twist in store for us. Hmmmmmmm...

Plot twist! It isn't a coaster after all!

Maybe they don't want to use the standard train design. Maybe having a particular kind of shoulder harness will lower the height restriction. Who knows?

 

We'll probably see Premier's usual setup, but in an industry that continues to innovate, you can never assume that things will always be the same based on previous installations.
