Busch Gardens Williamsburg files zoning for major new attraction
Written by Jason Jackson
Busch Gardens Williamsburg has filed a request with the James City County (Virginia) planning commission for a height variance in order to build a major new attraction in the France area of the park.Tweet
County regulations require a variance on structures over 60 feet tall. Larry Giles, Busch Gardens' Vice President of design and engineering filed the variance application, which included his remarks that "this area will now host Busch Gardens' latest expansion, guaranteed to thrill and reward the most challenging park guests."
