I've only been on Skyhawk at CP and that thing is absolutely amazing! I know this is smaller and not as fast, but I am hoping it will be similar to Skyhawk. I think it swinging over the river will make this a very unique experience and add to it's intensity


There are construction walls up, and they've been clearing the ground on the left as you enter Ireland.

They couldn't really start construction until yesterday afternoon so it's probably running behind schedule. Some a**hole named Balor or whatever stole the Heart of Eire so the whole Ireland section was basically in turmoil and they couldn't safely start construction because of everything that was going on with the dragons or whatever. Luckily we went over there yesterday and saved the day so they can start construction now. You're welcome.

PS: That ride is um... not good. :lol:

Oh, and yeah they've done a lot of land clearing. This ride is in an awesome spot. I can't wait.

^That is the opposite sentiment of the reaction I have seen on other (unnamed) pages. People seem to be upset about all the tree removal. Me on the other hand? S&S SCREAMING SWING IN VIRGINIA :lover: :lover: :lover: :lover: :lover: :lover: :lover: AT BUSCH GARDENS!!!!!!! :lover: :lover: :lover: :lover: :lover: :lover: :lover: :lover: :lover: Sure it sucks it's less "pretty" in that area but I mean were getting one of the most fun flats out there!

There are times where tree removal really does bother me and I feel that it takes away from the atmosphere of the park but I honestly think this looks fine. People just like to complain.

Yeah tree removal isn't just like "okay" with me but I've long wanted a Screamin Swing in Virginia since I rode Barnstormer at Dollywood.

Tree removal for no reason bothers me. This is a perfectly good reason to me. Screamin' swings are awesome.

ADVICE: I'm taking my first trip to BGW this Saturday! I'm really excited to visit this park after years of seeing pictures and new rides being added.

I expect the park to be busy, so lines are not a big issue. What are some suggestions for a first timer at BGW? Ride order? Shows that are a must see? Best haunts?

And yes, we do plan to make it a full day, opening to close. Thanks everyone!

^Be advised the forecast for this weekend is awful.

If you get there before opening, you should be able to get in all the coasters before noon. It might be best to get InvadR out of the way first, as it'll have a long line by noon. Tempesto is low capacity, too. (Plus, there's always Quick Queue).

Here's the order of the shows based on quality: Monster Stomp, Fiends, and Night Beats Revamped. (None of them are really "bad," though--Night Beats in the Festhaus is the most "family friendly.") Howl to Coexist (wolf show) is worth seeing, too.

The best of the haunts are Vault XX, Demented Dimensions, and Dystopia. Line will be long for the mazes early in the evening, but there's always Quick Queue (highly recommended for a Howl-o-Scream weekend night).

Crappy weather might keep the crowds down on Saturday.

There's some question about the track of this nor'easter but the weather this weekend (as of now) looks fine with low wind and a precipitation chance of less than 10% by park open.

As for the rides, Chuck is the expert but I should probably mention that Verbolten gets huge lines too and riding it early-ish would be wise. Mach Tower should be a high priority also if you ever happen to walk by it when it's not broken only because if the ride is open then the next breakdown is generally only a few short minutes away. :lol:
