^The bright colors are meant to match the atmosphere of Oktoberfest Village--so, a "moodier" paint scheme wouldn't make a lot of sense. I like contrast, myself, so I've appreciate the little touches of how the Black Forest is intruding on the station.

Watch out for Gunter in his "oil-stained lederhosen." ;)

Assuming that's not some very well done replica, then it's a crime to leave a 1969(?) Porsche 912 sitting there looking like that.


From what I was told, it is a real car that was caught in an accident and BGW purchased it.

Wow, this thing is looking incredible! I love the stacks of luggage for theming. I can't wait to check this thing out for myself, when it's open of course. Thanks for the update, Chuck!

Also, from this picture, it looks like we may be seeing a return of the waterfall, which makes me really happy. Of all the stuff that has been going on with this ride, the return of the waterfall has been my biggest concern, haha. :lmao:

I didn't even notice that! It would be great to see the waterfall again, that was such a great feature.
I won't stop riding roller coasters when I get old. I'll get old when I stop riding roller coasters!

^ & ^^Agreed. I like to see the waterfall return, as well. We should have our answer soon enough.

Busch has taken this to a new level of theming for them. This is almost on par with Disney's theming, and WAAAY more than Apollo's Chariot. I think I said that it would be earlier in this thread.

It would be really cool if BGW spent the next three or four years not adding new attractions, but expanding upon the theming in the other areas of the park, bringing them up to the standards set by the Oktoberfest renovation.

^ In fact, just retheme or spruce up the whole Fiesta Italia section altogether! It's the least well themed area in the park. (Still much better than 90% of other parks though.)
