Just an fyi for anyone if they were in the same situation, this is the email they sent me. Doesn't really make a ton of sense though since the prices for the other parks are different from Williamsburg so I find it kind of odd that wherever you redeem it will just become your home park.

"When you purchase your Passes Online, you are given an Order Number, and where the vouchers are redeemed that becomes your Home Park. That means if you redeem the Order Number in Florida, you are only entitled to the benefits of that Park. If you will purchase your Passes and send me the Order Number, I can redeem your vouchers here and mail you your Passes."

Very much looking forward to InvadR, Tempesto was a bit of a disappointment for me but I'm glad to see BGW is mixing it up a bit.

Not sure if anyone has seen/noticed this yet, but there is now a new pov video of InvadR up showing off where that second tunnel will be placed. (For those wondering the second tunnel mentioned in the ride description will be covering the first drop)

^ Thanks for the video.

This looks like such a solid addition to BGW!! I love the tunnel on the top of the first drop, as well as the bottom of the first drop. . . Just makes you wonder, why they didn't just make the tunnel the entirety of the first drop. Not that it matters at all, just found myself wondering that when I watched the POV!

Anyway, I can't wait to make it back out to the park to give it a try! Sadly, I think my visit this year will come before the InvadR opens! :cry:

It is definitely an odd layout, compared to most GCI's.

^ I agree for the most part, its shorter in length due to the area of land the park chose to work with. I'd say it is going to be more comparable with White Lightening than any other GCI.

It also doesn't have the curved first drop like most GCI's have.

From what I heard White Lightening is a mighty fine coaster, so Im all in on that too.
