I said the same thing after my first visit to the park. I had no idea how severely underrated Busch Gardens Williamsburg was!! I can't wait to go back!! By far one of, if not my favorite, park!

^Very good news, looks like the station or maintenance building that they're constructing there.

I just wanted to say once again that I seriously applaud what they're doing here. Almost any other park would have used this as an excuse to remove Le Scoot due to it's high maintenance costs, they decided to dump a ton of money into Le Scoot and build the coaster around it which will probably end up making both rides better. Bravo Busch Gardens.

Speaking of InvadR going "vertical," I went over the park for a while on Sunday, after Hurricane Matthew had slacked off. Brace yourselves for another InvadR update.

Let's take the train as usual, shall we?
002.jpg
Little footers lined up somewhere behind LeScoot, the log flume.
003.jpg
This is where you'll . . .
004.jpg
. . . take the tunnel!
005.jpg
This curious looking concrete slab is still serving as a table for the crew's water jug.
005a.jpg
Here it is from the other side.
006.jpg
This structure is probably the station, but I can't confirm that at the moment.
006a.jpg
There's a smaller "shed like" structure nearby.
007.jpg
Station? Barn? Hard to say at this point. But what's that on the left?
008.jpg
Yes, we can indeed confirm "verticalness."
008a.jpg
Here's a closer look.
009.jpg
Here's what you can see from the Alpengeist bridge. Perhaps another tunnel?
011.jpg
Here's another look at the construction site by the LeScoot entrance--never mind the giant buzz-saw blade.
012.jpg
One last look at the newly framed InvadR buildings.
013.jpg
OK, I lied. Two last looks. That's all for now.

^ Very nice.

Has anyone else seen the concept art of the trains? The front car has a wooden dragon like structure on it.
