Busch files for expansion in Williamsburg

Written by

Busch has filed for permission to build up to five new structures at Busch Gardens Europe in Williamsburg, Va., according to documents filed with the James City County planning department.

The plans call for "park expansion consisting of 5 guest buildings and various guest attractions and theming." Two supporting PDF files reveal that Busch has said that no building will be taller than 60 feet (so... no major coaster).

Anyone on the ground in Virginia want to share what they've heard?

Yessssssssssssss!!! Finally it will most likly be Spain. Even though there is no coaster planned, its still a new country.

this sounds great, whatever it may be. I grew up in Richmond and have been wanting to go back. Griffon pretty much has me creating a trip, but I will probably wait for this new development.

Or perhaps the long awaited Sesame Street addition.

Spain maybe? I guess we'll just have to wait and see where they plan to build it.

With just 1.5 Acres and its location,as reported in the Daily Press, I would say it is the Sesame Street area.
