This site, BTW, is one of the -finest- repositories for anything from Herr Achterbahn's life. Some of the pictures and models are amazing to see- and this might explain some of the different types of attractions- including the 'Flying' Coaster (Aptly named when you see the pictures).
More than 60 miles of holiday lights, 900 candles and 600 Christmas trees are ready to light up in two days for Christmas Town: A Busch Gardens Celebration. The start of this event may be the perfect way for guests to end their hectic Black Friday on Nov. 27.
Christmas Town visitors will find that Busch Gardens is a place for them to slow down, have fun and spend time with their family and friends. They will experience the park in a whole new light with all-new attractions, dazzling shows and one-of-a-kind gift ideas that will make everyone say, “Now this is Christmas.”
“We can’t wait to debut Christmas Town,” said John Reilly, general manager and executive vice president of Busch Gardens. “It’s a project we’ve been planning for years, and the moment is almost here.”
Christmas Town debuts on Black Friday, which is considered the busiest shopping day of the year. After such a hectic day, guests can unwind at Christmas Town and let the magic of a million twinkling lights and the aroma of fresh-baked cookies wash the day’s stress away. Where else can guests combine heart-warming Christmas shows, dazzling light displays and feel-good food and drinks with their shopping?
I'm really looking forward to some Trip Reports from this!
Been reading reports about the event, and mostly are all good. Biggest complaints are that when the sun goes down and the temp drops, none of the coasters are open. Supposedly last night it was so busy they opened up parts of Italy and Festa.
Wolf is all but gone. Only parts of the lift hills seem to remain. I'd post a link to Behind the Thrills who has a few pics of it, but my old account is MIA..so...restart here. But it's on the front page of their site.
Kind of shocking to see where it used to stand...can't really tell it was ever there.
^ Griffon is the only coaster running for the event. None of the other coasters are open. And Griffon was running all night last night up until around 9:15 when I left so I don't know where you heard that it closed when it got dark.
^Hey I live in Florida...so the time I get my info its all a mess. I had a few friends at the event til close and they said that no coasters were running, while they were under the impression that Griffon, Alpie and LNM would be up...so, you can see their confusion.
