Unfortunately I don't have the time to put in a full trip report, but let me just say quickly that I forgot how utterly charming BGW is as a park. Spent about five hours there on Sunday, wish I could have stayed the entire day but had to make a long 8 hour drive back up to NYC. That being said, after showing my wife several photos of the architecture, landscaping, and theming taken all throughout the park, she's now asking for Williamsburg to be our summer vacation this year. I have no choice but to oblige. :)

Also, Alpengeist is amazing, especially in the front. Instajump to the top of my favorite inverts!
That coaster dad [273] and that coaster kiddo [154]. Road trip buddies for life.
Dad's faves: Fury 325. Phantom's Revenge. Intimidator 305. El Toro. Skyrush.

Kiddo's faves: El Toro. Lightning Rod. Goliath (SFGAm). Wicked Cyclone. Thunderbolt (LP).

^ Looks like you're doing at least part of a trip I'm hoping to do in 2018 or 2019. :) Are you hitting KD as well?

We are doing Busch Gardens, HersheyPark, Kings Dominion, touring the DC area, and a bunch of Live escape rooms...

Sounds like a great trip, especially since I see no mention of SFA. ;)

I find most B&M inverts best in the last row. However, Alpengeist has been the only exception so far.

I thought Corkscrew Hill was okay, but it would have nothing on a simulator ride through Europe...especially over Neuschwanstein Castle.

I wondered what all those hang-gliders experienced when I saw them flying over the castle last October. Perhaps I will get to experience a similar trip without having to worry about plunging 2000 feet to my death! :b


I was just looking back at the posts from when Europe in the Air was announced. Little did they know... oh boy
