The one ride thing was worth it because we only did one day at Universal and IOA but I dont think we would have bought one otherwise, but if its unlimited rides for fourty thats awesome.

I paid $33 with my Busch Platinum Pass and it was unlimited as many rides as you wanted all day long.

Totally worth it!

^^^The $40 I mentioned for BGT was full price for the Unlimited. Regular, the one spin for each major ride flavor, was only $15 less! Why wouldn't you go big? Platinum Passes were good for 10% off those rates.

^I'm pretty sure the sign says May... At least that's what I think I heard it says...

My wager is Memorial Day Weekend.

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

Agreed. BBW was something at 16-20 I ignored...the "wuss" coaster of Busch's big ones. Rode again, shortly after, man I found new appreciation. There are a couple thrills on it that you could not find anywhere else, quite like it (like the back swinging out at nearly 80 degree "whipping" action while falling down the big drop). EF is the only suspended that appeared to beat BBW, as Robb said. However, the BBW was classic, and even if some of the enthusiest world doesn't feel it affected the park, that whole area is now dead feeling. BBW gave a feeling of something "lurking" in the woods; an energy. People happy, jumping around who had just ridden it, smiling. Yeah, I was a huge fan of the ride. I know a few others that kinged it "best of the park" as well.

Not knocking Robb at all, and he even admitted that it was probably the 2nd best suspended after EF, but he was probably spoiled by EF having ridden it many times. Everyone has their own opinions on everything. BBW likely is "watered down" compared to the thrill EF gave. Its the only suspended I can think about that had wicked S-turns like BBW had at the bottom of the big drop, only EF did that move more. And HOPEFULLY it will come back! Im going to Korea next year!

I feel the jump of the ride in ratings in the poll is more due to a sudden rush of enthusiests riding the ride that may have never ridden it, than people wanting to rate it higher because it was leaving.

BBW and Alpengeist are, and will likely always be, my favorites at my home park!

Damn, too bad Robb was there and I didn't know it though! I missed him at KD opening day too!

Thanks. I hate the signs that just state a season because it leaves a wide margin for openings.

I teach at the school of donkey!

Is 'Europe In The Air' taking Big Bad Wolf's place? I'm a little bit curious... :?r
You've crossed the boundary, WMG!

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?
