No offense to the mega-lite idea, but I think that would be stupid. We have a giga-lite at KD! What about a record breaking B&M flyer that swoops over the Rhine River?!?! Or do you think B&M flyers are dead in the US now?

What does the external comments mean......height of 156 feet to elevation of approx. 242 feet?

They probably means the elevation from sea level is a maximum 242-feet. I remember one of the press releases for Apollo's Chariot stating that the ride would climb 250 feet above sea level even though the actual lift is 170-feet tall.

The fact that Time Machine is 155ft makes you scratch your head on that. But who knows. I think it would be cool to see the ride relocated but to BGW would be a surprise.

Nice to see some attention being given to Festa Italia, which along with Kilarney, needs the most work. With Busch usually putting in coasters that are either hot at the mement or at least currently popular elsewhere my guess is that it could be an RMC wood or hybrid coaster or a B&M wing coaster since it seems they love their Beemers.

How quiet is Outlaw Run? The neighbors at Kingsmill would have a fit if a more traditional wood coaster was built.

I don't always seduce Donkeys, but when I do I use classy Champagne!

I would be very surprised if it's a wooden coaster. Even without steel wheels those make a lot of noise, and people around this park does not appear to be very found of high noises.

The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)

Looks like BG and KD are both getting new coasters in 2015... This is gonna be one heck of a year for the Commonweath of Virginia!!! This might be the first time that I buy a seasons pass to both parks in one year

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I'd love to see a RMC or an Intamin Mega-lite! Oh, and thanks for the food pictures! ;)

There was an article in the paper Saturday about the new ride, though it doesn't really give any information we don't already know. Here it is if anyone would like to read it:
