They probably switch to steel supports when the track gets higher off the ground.

Thanks for the update, Chuck! I for one am excited about this ride and am hoping to get back next year to ride it! I think it has the potential to be the sleeper hit of the season.

I wonder what could be the idea behind steel supports. If memory serves me correct isn't the coaster located in a potential flooding area?
If Intamin made a donkey, it wouldn't be tame.....well for a year

^I think the main idea is less maintenance. Steel holds up better than wood.

What's with the donkeys anyway?

Saw the Christmas Town announcement today. Looks like BG is adding a lot of new stuff this year. I do question the "most holiday lights in North America" line. Has Busch Gardens been waiting for the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights to close so they can claim this title?

2 coasters? I'm assuming that second one is the kiddie coaster?

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Believe it or not it's Tempesto! That's actually pretty awesome news. The Grover coaster is open too along with Verbolten as always.

They commented on the post that it will be Verbolten and Tempesto. Some smart A* ( :lmao: ) questioned about the claim to the most lights and the answered right back that they will have 8.2 million lights this year.
