Busch Gardens Williamsburg (BGW BGE) Discussion Thread

P. 448 - Pantheon Testing Video and Photos!

Recommended Posts

No clue or guess when it may be open. I HOPE it's by May 23 as that's the weekend I'll be in VA. 
I'm such a nerd I actually changed my travel plans, I was gunna do FL at the end and head back, but now I'm doing FL first so that way I can give BGW as much time as possible for Pantheon to open XD  With testing going on I don't think that's unrealistic, near 2 months from now, but we shall see.

I'm pretty excited about the airtime hill while you will be accelerating. I was let down by CHS (I didn't know Mack launches were slow) but looks like you're hauling over that thing. It seems quick too through the stall, whole thing looks to be moving fast. Deff has potential to be a top tier ride.

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

I was at the park today and caught the last test train of the day on the way to Apollo's Chariot.   Here's a short video and some stills.  The outward banked airtime hill looks amazing! Also in c

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

BGW is mobbed today with most lines overflowing out of the queues...

I’ll be back later so hopefully the crowds die down. It’s most likely a combination of the spring break rush and a lack of staffing.

Really? It's like 40 degrees outside.  I definitely don't envy anyone there today.

Took us about 5 hours waiting in food lines strictly to use our tasting cards we purchased. The rides, wasn't even going to try. Would have bought QQ but Griffon didn't open until 2 or 3 ish, and then by 5 it looked like it closed down again. Other lines looked crazy. We just stuffed or face with food and alcohol. We'll be back again soon I'm sure to do the rides once pantheon reopens, plus we have rides at two Six Flags parks the next 2 days, so we had an enjoyable day out of the house.

Just finished up my second stint at the park, was an enjoyable time. Lines decreased to around 15-20 mins for the coasters and a walk on at the end for Apollo that allowed for a mini marathon. I can’t feel my face from the cold now though, lol.

We had a similar experience.  My wife and I did wait in line for Invadr (40 minute wait) since we missed it the day before.  It took us 6 hours to work through our 30 punches.  Fortunately, everything was really good!

I'm going there today, mainly for Food and Wine. I imagine it'll be nuts (Colonial Williamsburg was fairly busy this week, too). A little warmer here today, but still chilly.

Every time I go to Williamsburg, I make an effort to eat at Food for Thought.  It’s the #1 rated restaurant on Yelp for a reason.  The prices are very reasonable for the quality of the food and the service is fantastic.


Thanks for this recommendation! Our party of 4 all had a wonderful meal. No complaints whatsoever except I got one of the specials and it contained a crab cake as part of it, however that was the one thing of everything we all had that could have been better. From the bread, to the mussels, to the ribs, to everything else we had, all great stuff! And the service was phenomenal as well.

Glad that you enjoyed it and that the food/service was as good as I remembered.  I’m hoping to to get out to BGW once Pantheon opens and I’ll definitely be eating there!
