Great trip-report - the log-flume looks amazing!

I loved this, they even re-themed the teaser signs to Christmas!


I don't know about the US but this sign - of course minus the tree - is a regular traffic sign here in germany: Warning that you enter a harbour area....

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Great pictures Steve, looks like BGW does a great job with this event! I always thought that Sea World Orlando put on a great Christmas event, and it looks like they do the same in Williamsburg.

And Verbolten is going to be great!

Great update. The structure of Verbolten's building looks so... normal. I guess the ride should be exciting, not the building :)

Great update Steve. The verbolten construction photos were awesome. The HD video on the sky ride was awesome. ... FWIW, I counted all the lights on Pompeii. 147,280. What do I win again?

I'm eating Thanksgiving leftovers right now, you'll be getting what's left of that in about 4 hours. :lmao:

I'm really looking forward to seeing what the building will look like once they finish it. The structure certainly looks ordinary, but maybe the outside will be themed up nicely (I wouldn't expect any less out of BGW).

Agreed about SeaWorld Orlando, I got to catch their Christmas event a few years back and was blown away. I'm really looking forward to seeing it again this year!

Verbolten will go through the woods and THEN over the river.... :roll:

Plus what the other guy said about the inverted track. I get that the Thanksgiving song is "Over the river and through the woods to Grandmother's house we go...." but while we're being proper enthusiasts pointing out what's wrong :evil:
