Griffon Opening Day Set for May 25, 2007

The website indicates that the ride will open on May 25, 2007, which seems about right considering the amount of work that still needs to be done of the coaster.

Guests can still marvel at this menacing new icon at Busch Gardens, but it appears the public will have to wait two more months to test out this beast.
