Busch Gardens Williamsburg files application for new ride
According to the Daily Press, Busch Gardens Williamsburg
has filed an application with the James City County Board of Supervisors for a height variance for a tall ride structure.
Here's the story from the Daily Press.
Update from Robert: And here's the application on the James City County website. It's called "Busch Gardens Germany Attraction" and the comment is "Application requests a waiver to height restrictions and proposes a 'thrill attraction of a single tower not to exceed 260 feet above ground level.'"
I was expecting a new coaster. I'm guessing this is some sort of drop tower then?
New Drop Tower for BGW! The first Drop tower in the Busch/Sea World family I believe.
"Rise and Fall of the Third Reich"? Um, no, maybe not...
Given BGW's recent trend of attraction development (Europe in the Air, IllumiNights), might I suggest a few possible names for a new themed drop ride?
Isn't that just a giant beer hall... without beer?
I agree that this may sound like some kind of drop or observation tower, but it could very well be a new roller coaster. Coasters reach their highest peak, and then drop, so the highest point on the coaster could be 260 ft.! But its probably a drop tower.
Okay then, if we're going roller coaster, how about "Zugspitze"? (Google it.)
I wish I had gotten to ride Drachenfire. Not interested in a drop tower, but maybe it will be well-themed.
