Williamsburg planning commission releases new Busch Gardens attraction info
Written by Jason Jackson
Here is additional information about the proposed Busch Gardens Williamsburg ride expansion, from a James City County Planning Commission memo [PDF format]:Tweet
"The new queuing building and embarking/disembarking station will collectively be approximately 7,500 square feet in area, and will serve the balance of the overall expansion, which will be laid out over an area of approximately five acres. The buildings will be constructed on-site of materials (wood, stucco, stone, etc.), and have a thematic appearance similar to other nearby structures in the theme park. The buildings are not expected to exceed forty feet in height at their highest points, and should not be visible from outside the theme park’s boundaries.... The proposal calls for the new buildings (and associated expansion) to be constructed near the center of the theme park near the northwest end of the Rhine River, and just north of the existing Alpengeist rollercoaster attraction. The new buildings and expansion will replace an attraction currently located in that vicinity. [Link added by editor.]
The James City County Planning Division staff recommended that Busch Gardens be granted the Special Use Permit it is seeking.
