Twenty-four degrees? Sheesh, and I thought it was cold riding Top Gun during Winterfest at Carowinds on Dec. 10.
I've always thought that BGW could pull off an excellent Christmas promotion--decorations and Santas from all the different countries, a cool Christmas train ride, not to mention excellent Christmas goodies from their bake shop or a nice dinner in the Festhaus. But I have mixed feelings about staying open all year. As I get older, I find that I enjoy deferred gratification--there's just something about opening day. Plus, Busch can do a lot of maintenance during the off-season.
