Photo TR - Busch Gardens Williamsburg (8/23/10)


Recommended Posts

This visit would be our first to Busch Gardens Williamsburg. We had a really great time. The park has lots of shady areas, beautiful landscapes, and great rides. But most importantly, lots of trees!

 

Enjoy the photos:

Big ben?

This is probably the LEAST amount of trees you'll see in a any one picture.

We see you Griffon!

I hope this doesn't count as a credit, because we did not ride the train!

Interlocking dragons tail!

We ate here for lunch. What a deal! And the food was actually good.

Griffon's awesome loading area!

Only one Griffon train :( , and one Scott.

What a beautiful ride.

Twisty.

Noted.

Really fun inversion.

IMG_5006.JPG.44d1493dff5338f95fb6d05913e7b8cb.JPG

This train is about to spray fluid all over the place!

IMG_5007.JPG.076f9d69d26f57d55aed25b317e71fa5.JPG

Funny, because it's so close in spelling to 'Scott'.

Starting out with coolest clock ever! I have no idea what time it says, but it's still really cool!

IMG_5025.thumb.JPG.2d76b2915786eaf4620e4f9cee23c60c.JPG

That's me!

And that's my third hand.

Argggg!

Apparently she needs to be rescued...

This figure is quite dorky.

The commentary is taking break.

Ok, break is over... Nice boobs!

Trees, trees, and more trees.

Those footers blend in so nicely.

Everyone has this shot. And that's why I took it...

IMG_5048.JPG.5c1c608d3c9e2aaf3c65282bb469b163.JPG

Can't help but be reminded of the famous youtube grape-stomping video.

Something about this makes me laugh.

IMG_5055.thumb.JPG.0f3a9aa2dcd66e1766924663084503d4.JPG

As far as B&M hypers go, I thought Apollo's was not nearly the best there is.

IMG_5058.JPG.64ffff4964126b86c7afef665c421f06.JPG

I'm really glad they have a designated area for this.

IMG_5059.thumb.JPG.76b17ad92d11e5f3ce08b89008b70ccb.JPG

The line for Pompeii was about 30 seconds long. I really liked the effects midcourse!

IMG_5060.thumb.JPG.99ad0ca9ce40e2c40a6a9d0a419cc61d.JPG

Don't mind the interlocking loops, this is a picture of the Skyride!

IMG_5062.thumb.JPG.83bf28d99a88d14fd11d1783d8186f9d.JPG

Just look at those trees!

IMG_5063.thumb.JPG.09bb706ca9f3f0305c434c8af8e4c7fb.JPG

Cool angle.

IMG_5064.thumb.JPG.e324efc13cba5c169158c6f5a6018470.JPG

Real or fake bird?

IMG_5066.JPG.3052fc163f989115e392932ab225e985.JPG

Coasters, bridges, and a boat. What more could you ask for!?

IMG_5069.thumb.JPG.f3dfcb9130811eac04e7b725f9307fd0.JPG

Us. (on a boat)

IMG_5071.JPG.3b5e03cc70eee97842d922f91f0d87a7.JPG

That weird flat part after Apollo's first drop.

IMG_5073.thumb.JPG.a9cdc4668199d98dd360a7c472c62bca.JPG

This is Suzanna.

IMG_5077.thumb.JPG.59c6b68c7da9062e58d11a033bfb9ce1.JPG

This is Scott.

IMG_5088.JPG.651d3f21eed543f19f0dd773c77dbde4.JPG

This is Suzanna riding the Skyride sitting in an incorrect position. Bad rider!

IMG_5090.JPG.6074ea25bd599bd0fd3f2cc42c6f3054.JPG

This picture is completely unique. No really, it is!

IMG_5097.JPG.79fe39584dacebbb69f47440ee04ccc1.JPG

This inter-cave double-helix picture is actually a bit more unique than the interlocking loop shot. Just a bit.

IMG_5099.thumb.JPG.f4f99180aa71e3f6e32bc6a70ac99d8a.JPG

What an awesome front car rider. No really, I like this!

IMG_5104.JPG.972ef14864f3935642d91d1db68b00ec.JPG

Weee!

IMG_5108.JPG.1d45ca1ed3bd07a5aec347d484629511.JPG

If it was your first time at Busch Gardens, you would do this too!

Goodbye, Busch Gardens. Thanks for all the tree photo-taking opportunities!

Thanks everyone.

 

^ I liked Apollo's Chariot. Although, I was at Great Adventure a few days after BGW, and thought Nitro was SO much better. The faster speed, better layout, and helix made Nitro a better ride.

 

Really? Great Adventure is my home park and I ride Nitro frequently, and I think that Apollo's Chariot is the better hyper with the better layout, I love the way it utilizes the terrain. I also think the second part of the ride is much superior to Nitro's second half.

WTF did they do to the Festhaus? Hopefully that clock thing is temporary.

 

It was part of Illuminights for the, "World's Largest Cuckoo Clock." It was one of the most screwed up / ridiculous / awesome shows I have seen at an amusement park.

My god, every TR of Busch Gardens makes me wanna go more. It really looks like an amazing place.

 

Look at your amusement park.

 

Now look at me.

 

Now look back at your amusement park.

 

Now look back at me.

 

Sadly, it isn't me.

But if it stopped buying crappy carnival rides and fake plants, it could be me.

 

Look down.

Back up.

Where are you? You're on a boat, in the park your park could be like.

 

Look at your hand.

Back at me.

I have it, it's an oyster with two Quick Queue passes to Busch Gardens Williamsburg.

 

Look again, the oyster is overpriced amusement park food.

 

See? Anything is possible when your park is like my park and not like a ghetto carnival. We've got a horse.

Thanks for the trip report! I loved the Captions taking a break bit. Made me happy. I've been to BGW several times, but every time I see pictures I'm still astounded at what an amazing and beautiful park it is.

 

Miss the Big Bad Wolf though...I just really liked that ride.

^Thanks!! I would have loved a chance to ride BBW, having heard about it all my life. Seems like it really rounded out BGW's coaster collection.

 

BBW was my first coaster, and thus it will always hold a special place in my heart... unfortunately Arrow suspendeds are hard to find around these days.
