This is definitely a park on my 'must visit' list. Verbolten looks like it's going to be a great ride - good on Zierer/Busch Gardens!

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

Great TR Steve!! I will be there this upcoming weekend. Didn't really like the idea of them running Alpie (versus in the past Christmastowns running Griffon) but hey, it's a coaster to ride so I am not complaining. The lights are truly amazing and the peppermint fudge hot cocoa is a tad sinful. Looking forward to seeing the progress of Verbolten in person.

Excellent pics, thanks for sharing.

Great TR! Their Christmas event looks fantastic and I'm glad it is doing well. The Pompeii lights look amazing. I really hope I can make my way to the event for next Christmas!

Verbolten may be the coaster I'm most looking forward to in 2012, no joke. If it lives up to its promise...

And I had no idea that this park went so balls-out for Christmas. Wow, just beautiful. That "Polar Pathway" thing is sick. Great shots, thanks!

Verbolten is looking great, and the park did a wonderful job "Christmasing up" Escape from Pompeii (much better than last year). I'll be checking it out next Sunday, myself.

Very nice photos, as always. It makes me wish KI had gotten better attendance for its Winterfest and kept doing it. Busch Gardens is always beautiful, and it only looks better with all the Christmas lights. Absolutely fantastic.

Just when you think the park can't look any nicer. Great update Steve! Can't wait to see Verbolten's drop into the Rhine. It's cool seeing an event building go up with something other than a Wild Mouse in it ;)

Great photos! The park looks amazing. I don't think I'll have a chance to check this out this year, but your Photo TR has tempted me to see if I can make it.
