Thank you, CFC.

Last summer I didn't get us our typical fun passes. We decided to spend a couple of days at Kings Dominion just to ride I305.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

^ I'm planning a meetup with some friends this Friday if you're interested in showing up. I'm planning on doing only mazes and scare zones though (we may do rides if it's not busy enough).

Just drop me a PM and we'll work something out.

Imagine my joy when I saw that I was going to be stationed just "down the road" (20-30 minute drive) from BGW. I can't wait - might be there with enough time to hit up Howl-O-Scream, and certainly Christmas Town!

^Kind of a pointless video, don't you think? They should have waited a few more weeks so we could see more.

Busch Gardens Tampa gave us a video featuring a awesome pile of dirt.

They're documenting the project. So obviously, they'll show stage one in video one.

And also, how many people got excited about Cheetah Hunt dirt videos? :p

Kind of pointless to complain when the park provides a backstage look at a new ride during its early phases of construction, don't you think? We'll be hearing more from the park about Verbolten in the future--please be patient.

I enjoy looking back on these early construction updates when the ride is completed, or near completion. Even sometimes years down the road they are fun and neat to look at.

Oh no don't get me wrong, I'm not being impatient or complaining really. I'm just a little surprised they didn't show more of an overview of the site that showed a little bit more of the scope of the project. I know how long these things take and I enjoy the suspense of seeing what the final product will look like!
