How busy at the end of July in Williamsburg?

Busch Gardens Williamsburg: How busy will BGW be on weekdays at the end of July?

I'm visiting BGW (one of my favorite theme parks of all time) at the end of July. We'll be there on the last Monday and Tuesday of July. My question: how busy will the parks be, do you think?

Weekdays are pretty good, even in July. I would expect medium-sized crowds with 30-minute waits for Verbolten and Griffon, and 15 to 20-minute waits for Alpengeist and Apollo's Chariot.

Thanks! We were pondering buying front of the line passes, but if it's not going to be terribly busy, we'll probably just show up early and tour smart.

You can alway buy quick queue after you enter the park and gauge the lines. Quick Queue is sold at stores throughout the park.

I've been there on weekdays in the summer & the lines weren't bad. Especially, before noon, the park is pretty empty. Weekends, though, are another animal. Weekends get packed, even early.
