Busch Gardens Europe drops 'Haunted Lighthouse' attraction
Written by Pete Brecht
The Haunted Lighthouse 4-D movie is no more! It was replaced at Busch Gardens Tampa with the old Pirates movie, and they have now done the same with the Busch Gardens Williamsburg park. Interestingly, the Tampa change was promoted as a new attraction (since Pirates had never been there), whereas the Williamsburg switchover to revive Pirates 4-D was done completely under the radar. In fact, Haunted Lighthouse was still at BGE last month, so I'm not sure what prompted the change.Tweet
I can't help but wonder if TPI has something to do with this. The embarassingly low score that Haunted Lighthouse has been getting in the TPI rankings pulls down Busch Gardens Europe's overall score, so I wonder if they're trying to get a little edge there. It's not as though the attraction was unpopular; I always saw a big crowd of people waiting to get in.
