I'm going next weekend, how should crowds be? I don't mind too much as long as they aren't insanely packed. Anything else I should know, like what rides to head to first?

Launch Fast? Many Launch Coaster? Launch Hunt? Wolf Hunt? Dragon Fire Hunt? Mach Launch?

Or maybe they make it Virginia related. Dogwood Tree Chop? Colonial Cruise? President Assassin? Chesapeake Chase? James River Jaunt?

My vote is still on Das Piggehs, a Three Little Pigs launched coaster adventure, but since they didn't go with Der Fallinfast, I'm not holding my breath.

Yeah, they could definitely do an about face on us again. I wonder if they registered any of the other choices too.

I was also thinking of going on Saturday, and was curious how the crowds would be. It's opening weekend, so I expect it'll be crowded, but it's also early in the season and supposed to rain, so I'm not sure. Probably I'll just stick with the historic triangle things.

As far as what rides, I'd probably head to the back and hit Alpengeist and DarKastle first, as those usually have the longest waits for me. Griffon and Apollo I've never waited over 30 minutes for, but I also usually make use of the single rider line for those when I can.

How is Mach Tower supposed to compare to Drop Tower at KD?

Or more like "Super Fast Ride" or something equivalently inane.

If I were Busch Gardens (Either one) I'd fire the person who named the freakin' thing. I mean, Cheetah Hunt? I picture the name being mutated in the next few months as they gain sponsorship by Frito Lay... (wait for it)

CHEETOH HUNT! Sponsored by FRITO LAY! Join Chester Cheetah as he searches for snack food...

Verbolten could go the same route, I'm afraid- but I will admit: If they DO use this name, it will be one of the -single- greatest ride names at BGE today.

Visited the park today, had a blast. Got on every ride, with the exception of the three water rides.

Alpengeist got stuck on the lift and Apollo's was down for a while, but overall it was a blast! The Festhaus was lacking today, both in food quality and guest participation in the show. Although, this college kid got up to go dance with one of the girls, and pushed a little girl aside so he could grab the hand of the preformer. She then switched places with her male counterpart, which was quite hilarious to see.

Great visit overall, can't wait to go again later this month, and I guess I'll close with a quick picture of Mach Tower. Sorry for the crappy angle, but hey, no watermarks!

I hope they really do go with "Verbolten"! The other possibilities seem too uninspired.
