Skycoastin' Steve's 2011 Season Extravaganza!!


Recommended Posts

Great update Steve. The verbolten construction photos were awesome. The HD video on the sky ride was awesome. ... FWIW, I counted all the lights on Pompeii. 147,280. What do I win again?

I'm eating Thanksgiving leftovers right now, you'll be getting what's left of that in about 4 hours.

 

Great update. The structure of Verbolten's building looks so... normal. I guess the ride should be exciting, not the building

 

I'm really looking forward to seeing what the building will look like once they finish it. The structure certainly looks ordinary, but maybe the outside will be themed up nicely (I wouldn't expect any less out of BGW).

 

Great pictures Steve, looks like BGW does a great job with this event! I always thought that Sea World Orlando put on a great Christmas event, and it looks like they do the same in Williamsburg.

 

And Verbolten is going to be great!

 

Agreed about SeaWorld Orlando, I got to catch their Christmas event a few years back and was blown away. I'm really looking forward to seeing it again this year!

To add another thing wrong with the picture...

Verbolten will go through the woods and THEN over the river....

 

Plus what the other guy said about the inverted track. I get that the Thanksgiving song is "Over the river and through the woods to Grandmother's house we go...." but while we're being proper enthusiasts pointing out what's wrong

 

By making this post and you saying "you get it", you are actually saying that you don't get it.

Great TR Steve!! I will be there this upcoming weekend. Didn't really like the idea of them running Alpie (versus in the past Christmastowns running Griffon) but hey, it's a coaster to ride so I am not complaining. The lights are truly amazing and the peppermint fudge hot cocoa is a tad sinful. Looking forward to seeing the progress of Verbolten in person.

 

Excellent pics, thanks for sharing.

Verbolten may be the coaster I'm most looking forward to in 2012, no joke. If it lives up to its promise...

 

And I had no idea that this park went so balls-out for Christmas. Wow, just beautiful. That "Polar Pathway" thing is sick. Great shots, thanks!

Verbolten is looking great, and the park did a wonderful job "Christmasing up" Escape from Pompeii (much better than last year). I'll be checking it out next Sunday, myself.

Canobie Corkscrew hurt, that's all I really have to say about that ride.
It is an Arrow, and an early one at that. As for Yankee Cannonball though, if you get in the right car at the right time (Second car with a heavier group) the old girl gives amazing airtime. Never get front row though, as much as people say either front or back row is the best on woodies. Its not true in this case.
