Fans petition Busch Gardens to return the tunnel effects to the Loch Ness Monster coaster
Written by Robert Niles
Before I took Natalie on Loch Ness Monster at Busch Gardens Williamsburg last summer, I described for her my first time on the ride (30-some years ago!). I told her about woods surrounding the track, the interlocking loops over the river, and an encounter with "Nessie" inside the high-speed tunnel.Tweet
When we finished the ride, she'd loved it - and everything had been exactly as I described it... except for that tunnel. I could have sworn that there were lights in it. Had I remembered that wrongly?
Nope. I was right, as Theme Park Insider reader Caleb Phillips reminded me when he wrote me a few days ago. Caleb, it turns out, is trying to organize an online effort to convince Busch Gardens to bring back the in-tunnel effects on the Loch Ness Monster. He's set up an online petition, which you can sign:
Several years ago Busch Gardens Williamsburg's Loch Ness Monster had special effects in the tunnel portion of the ride. These Special effects included flashes of light, mist, and also a large illuminated sea serpent (the Loch Ness Monster). Upon signing this petition you are stating your belief that the removal of these features have resulted in degradation of the overall ride expierience and would like to see such features be reinstated in the ride program.
Again, here is the link to sign the petition. Please, SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, can your fans have this favor? Let's turn on the lights again in the Loch Ness Monster tunnel!
