Busch Gardens Williamsburg announces new show, new ride, new summer night event
Written by Robert Niles
Here's Busch Gardens Williamsburg's GM John Reilly, announcing a new ride and two new shows at the park, which will open for the season on March 26, 2010.Tweet
The new ride is Europe in the Air, a new simulator ride that replaces Corkscrew Hill and features, as the name implies, a high-definition aerial tour of Europe's top landmarks.
The new shows are a night-time show called "IllumiNights: A Busch Gardens Encore." (Wow, did someone go to Epcot?) According to the park's press release, "Different areas of the park will celebrate IllumiNights in its own way, culminating in a park-wide pyrotechnics extravaganza." IllumiNights opens in June.
The second new show is a replacement for Emerald Beat. The as-yet-unnamed show will again feature Irish dancing and music. (FWIW, I didn't know that Emerald Beat was closing, and, uh, this just screwed up the Best Live Show bracket for the Best Theme Park Attraction Tournament. Emerald Beat was going to be the number two seed in that bracket. My bad.)
