I'm ok with that color. I don't have any plans to go back to the park for the normal operating season, but I look forward to checkin out te construction when I go the there for Christmas town.

By the way, did anyone see that Busch Gardens Tampa included Christmas town in with the fun card? The annouced it on twitter and it's now on their website. Is there any possibility that Williamsburg could do that? They should, it'd make my life a whole lot easier.

I was there on Thursday and saw the clearing next to Apollo's Chariot, but I didn't notice any track there or by the brewery.

I wonder if that teal is a tribute to Drachen Fire? ;)

Also kinda suprised how much work is already being done without an official announcement.

I've gone pantless!

I imagine the park needs to get a "head start" due to "off-season" events such as Howl-o-Scream and especially Christmas Town.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

When do you think Busch Gardens Willamsburg will announce The Pasta Coaster? (Yes,I'm calling it that.)
Vekoma is English means, "We don't have the budget for a B&M so let's just order a Vekoma."

Got this picture from CoasterFusion. More Premier Rides track is on site at BGW. Yep, it's pretty much confirmed that it's a S:UF clone.

I'm guessing this coaster will go up rather quickly due to the fact that it's a clone. Im curious too see how the finished product looks with the theming/landscaping.

I think the theming will surprise us. Sure the theme may be iffy, but I bet the theming will be done well.
