Busch Gardens Williamsburg (BGW BGE) Discussion Thread

P. 453 - Bierfest begins July 30th

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the report and pictures! Looking forward to my first trip to Williamsburg HOS on Friday. One thing I noticed on the website is it says unearthed starts at 530 instead of 600. You mentioned you went there first did you find that to be true? Also, how were the lines when you went? Just seems like a lot to get done in 4 hours (4.5 if unearthed opens early) without QQ. I think it's going to be a must with only 1 day to do all the mazes (then again it's a Friday and early in the season?), but do you have any tips or recommendations or a specific path to take for the haunts? We are going to be there all day to do all the rides and shows during the day. Thanks!

Circo Sinistro had the longest line of the bunch, being as it's the new maze--everybody went there as soon as it got dark. Lumberhack had a long wait, and Cornered gets long lines too--largely because these mazes are mostly outdoors and more fun after dark.

 

I didn't notice it Unearthed opened early on Friday, but there was already a short line for it when I got there; so, it probably did open at 5:30. I'd do Unearthed first, since it opens early, and I'd hit Circo Sinistro as soon as possible after it gets dark. (Sinistro was the last maze we hit, and it had generated a long line by the time we got there.)

 

The shows run all day, so you can see those before the mazes open.

^^ thanks!!! It's kind of weird how they announced this back in may? And haven't started vertical construction yet, but KI has already.

 

Not really. All construction jobs and sites are different. You have to deal with clearing ground, unexpected contingencies,availability of contractors, etc. BGW is moving along pretty well with InvadR.

I said the same thing after my first visit to the park. I had no idea how severely underrated Busch Gardens Williamsburg was!! I can't wait to go back!! By far one of, if not my favorite, park!

 

Epic report coming soon...

 

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh!!! I can't wait!!

I just wanted to say once again that I seriously applaud what they're doing here. Almost any other park would have used this as an excuse to remove Le Scoot due to it's high maintenance costs, they decided to dump a ton of money into Le Scoot and build the coaster around it which will probably end up making both rides better. Bravo Busch Gardens.

Speaking of InvadR going "vertical," I went over the park for a while on Sunday, after Hurricane Matthew had slacked off. Brace yourselves for another InvadR update.

Let's take the train as usual, shall we?

Little footers lined up somewhere behind LeScoot, the log flume.

This is where you'll . . .

. . . take the tunnel!

This curious looking concrete slab is still serving as a table for the crew's water jug.

Here it is from the other side.

This structure is probably the station, but I can't confirm that at the moment.

There's a smaller "shed like" structure nearby.

Station? Barn? Hard to say at this point. But what's that on the left?

008.thumb.jpg.535f8fd35b6784779d152600a868c740.jpg

Yes, we can indeed confirm "verticalness."

Here's a closer look.

Here's what you can see from the Alpengeist bridge. Perhaps another tunnel?

Here's another look at the construction site by the LeScoot entrance--never mind the giant buzz-saw blade.

One last look at the newly framed InvadR buildings.

OK, I lied. Two last looks. That's all for now.
