Busch files for expansion in Williamsburg

March 4, 2008, 1:44 PM · 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?

March 4, 2008 at 8:44 PM · 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.

March 5, 2008 at 5:22 AM · Spain maybe? I guess we'll just have to wait and see where they plan to build it.
