We knew that a tower ride was coming for spring 2011, and now we know the details. Mach Tower will debut mext year, a 245-foot drop tower located in the Oktoberfest section of the park. It will be an outdoor drop tower.
Also in the Oktoberfest section, Busch Gardens will be refurbishing and updating the look of that section of the park, including changes to the stores and games located there.
In 2012, Busch Gardens will debut a new roller coaster. This roller coaster will be a multi-launch roller coaster.
At Water Country USA, they will debut Vanish Point in 2011. This is a 75 foot tower with two drop options. You can stand in a sky box, and you start as soon as the floor gives out. The other option is to start horizontally on a speed slide.
You can find out more details of these new updates on the Busch Gardens Williamsburg website.
