A screamin swing in Ireland would be a perfect fit, I’m on board with that.

As for project Madrid, who said it is happening for 2020 as well as being a new coaster on top of that? If it is a new hamlet I wouldn’t expect it to be ready until 2021-2022 the earliest.

Hi TPR,

As a stop on my summer trip, I'll be visiting Busch Gardens Williamsburg on Wednesday, July 18th. How should crowds be? Is there a good itinerary for how to get each credit, and are there any notable non-coaster rides that I should check out?

Thanks!

You shouldn't have any big crowd-related issues on a Wednesday. The park tends to open in phases, so you might want to head toward Griffon and InvadR first (Germany and Italy tend to open later). If you're into water rides, hit Pompeii and LeScoot (the log flume).

Anyone know the loose article policy for Battle for Eire? We'll be at the park tomorrow to experience it for the first time.

Nothing allowed in the queue, unfortunately.

When I was there on Friday they have a "move your fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo" system for $6 which I found to be efficient and nice. Doesn't stop morons from taking snapchats on rides like Le Scoot where I saw some guy going down the drop with his phone out.

Side note: Rode InvadR for the first time friday. Cool ride, only rode once in the back after the 3ish hour long rain delay.

Apollo's Chariot briefly stopped on the midcourse and reopened 10 minutes later. Nobody on the train cared, except for Timolyn Tillman who (of course) is a lawyer. Coincidentally, only 3 people "suffered concussions" from the routine block stop and it just-so-happened to be the lawyer and her 2 family members.

I hate America.

I heard about this and it is absolute BS. Of COURSE a lawyer was on that train and wants to sue and get the incident media coverage. People are ridiculous.

If coming to an e-stop on the midcourse causes a concussion, then Boomerang brakes cause a f*cking skull fracture.

why are people like this????
