Well, your well-reasoned argument has certainly convinced me of the error of my ways.

Including the theming, Cobra's Curse is 80 feet tall. Something like that would be a good fit for Ireland, and fill a major height restriction gap in BGW's lineup.

I totally agree on that . :)

Tempesto? It's a large ride that's indisputably thrill.

Honestly, can we just agree that this park is already fantastic and any ride that BGW could possibly add would just make it better? I don't care if the new ride is good or not (which for the reocrd, to the person who thinks the idea of a Cobra’s Curse to BGW is wack, I thought Cobra’s Curse was great and would love to see one at BGW), just so long as it doesnt replace another ride (*cough* Verbolten), can it really make the park worse?

I wouldn't mind seeing a version of "Cobra's Curse" themed to Irish myth.

Off topic, but hey its beer and it used to be part of visiting The Old Country, aka BGW. The good news, brewery tours are coming back to Anheuser Busch in Williamsburg, on select weekends this summer! The bad news is the tours are not free, they cost $25. Tours are Friday, Saturday, and Sunday the first weekend of June, July, August, and September.

Honestly I couldn't care less of the theme, but a family spinning coaster would be perfect for BGW. Something for the kiddos that aren't tall enough for InvadR but are too old for Alpine Express. Me likey. :p

6. Twisted Cyclone 7. Alpengeist 8. Mine Blower 9. Montu 10. Incredible Hulk

Can we assume the tour will include free pints? They're being a little dodgy about that very important detail.

Agreed. While the ride didn't change my life it was good fun and better than expected.
