Official Busch Gardens Williamsburg/Europe Topic
With the addition of the Sesame Street area this year, and the sale, how do you think the year will end up for BGE? (And you could throw in Tampa and Sea World...)

I'm just gonna say "Best Park Employee since 2009..."

The artist formerly known as The Situation, who was formerly known as Travis, who may go back to Travis...

I think they will be fine - they get a lot of tourists (though tourism may be down because of the economy) but their fun card is really popular with people. Also, they have a good variety - thrill rides, family rides, shows, exhibits, etc. to attract all types of people. I plan to get a pass for this upcoming year.

Griffon is only 2 years old, so of course its popular with all of the advertising they had for it not too long ago.
Also, since Griffon is new, it dispatches alot faster than Big Bad Wolf, which is 25 years old.

Griffon runs 30 per train with usually 2 trains

Big Bad Wolf runs 28 per train with usually 2 trains.

They don't take long to run around and hit your restraint... Big Bad Wolf just had a longer line.

There aren't fountains... it's the water splashdown like that on Diamondback and SheiKra... if there are fountains the times that I've been in the queue (7 times) they ain't been on.

Coasters like Alpi can not run if it is too cold. The air temperature has to be a certain degree before they can operate the coaster. So if it is too cold then that is one of the coasters that will not be operating.

Yep its true. Last season on season pass holders day we waited in line while it was snowing. We had to wait until the air temperatue went higher before they could even start the coaster. It was still snowing when we rode it but the air temp was a bit warmer.
