How long does the line for Verbolten tend to be on average during Christmastown? It seems like the event is mostly geared towards families with very young kids so I'm wondering if the line isn't too much worse than during the normal season. It'd be awesome if they ran Alpengeist simply because of the theming, but I wouldn't mind settling for a few laps on Verbolten (a ride I actually enjoy more). Great reports, the lighting display looks beautiful!

When I was there last Friday night, the line was barely out of the station; then again, the temp was 39 degrees F.

It was a very busy night at Christmas Town. The temperature was in the high 50s, so a lot of people came (they had to use the Scotland parking lot).

It's been so warm in Williamsburg this week that they had to suspend the ice show. Looks like it'll be cold enough tonight, though (highs in the 50s, lows in the 40s).

I guess they are having very large crowds! Had to close the park due to capacity. Can't even imagine how awful traffic was and how it was effected on the highway. I feel bad for people who weren't going to the park but still stuck in traffic.

There's only one response to BGW's "teaser" videos.

It looks like they're actually attempting a teaser campaign after the embarrassment of Tempesto. :Pr Good for them though, I'm already interested! I feel like they have met their quota of adult steel coasters. I'm going to cross my fingers for a custom wood RMC similar to Outlaw Run, Lightning Rod, or Wildfire!! :b

I'm assuming it's a coaster based off one person saying "the drop will go over here" in the video. :br

They left a hammer on the table, which would certainly be necessary to build a wooden coaster...
