Busch Gardens Williamsburg (BGW BGE) Discussion Thread

P. 443 - A Night at Busch Gardens' Christmas Celebration

Recommended Posts

I was at the park for a few hours yesterday and caught a few Tempesto test runs. I remember some concerns about the color scheme of the train "matching" that of the track and supports, but I think they look good together (they don't "clash" at all). They did some more work on the entrance plaza, too--more signage and strings of lights (which give it a "circus stunt show" feel) and a test seat. All in all, it's shaping up nicely.

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

Yep--looking forward to riding Tempesto. Should be a lot of fun (and you have to love the view up there).

^You can see some of it from Apollo's Chariot. There's a small entrance plaza with a flag pole and some planted areas. They've also strung some "old-fashioned" lights. The entrance looks like a wooden "half-pipe." They have an onride photo stand, too.

Wonderful, it should look great when it is all done and ready to go. Can always count on Busch to never disappoint in that department.

I wonder if at any time in the process they considered looping Tempesto around AC? That would have been cool. Also I like where the entrance plaza is. I wouldn't have liked having the entrances of AC and Tempesto right next to each other. It is neat that the lines go by each other though.

The "Gerta recommends" bit is an amusing tie in to Verbolten.

this is probably going to be the best themed skyloop (at least that's what i think it is called) made.

I think Sky Scream's theming is much better.

^I think that's correct. They opened the ride and finished theming the queue later. Hansa Park did the same thing with Fulch von Novgorod.

Theming looks pretty nice to me- I love the nod to Verbolten.

 

I wonder if Tempesto will make an appearance at media day, as Gerta and Gunther did for Verbolten. Perhaps he could do a motorcycle jump through the loop!
