How about a little InvadR update? There isn't anything "vertical," of course, but the park has been making progress preparing the site in Fort New France, and they've added some new signs to their construction walls. These photos were taken from the train, the path to the LeScoot log flume, and the bridge near Alpengeist.

Now, just to make sure we're all on the same page here, it's pronounced "Invad . . .
002.jpg
. . . R"! At least the folks on the train emphasize the "R." The "TM" is, I presume, silent.

Rounding the bend into the construction zone (not far from the Festhaus).

Hmm--looks like something's afoot here.
005.jpg
Perhaps, a "footer"? At least that's what I think it is, but this stairway of concrete and rebar could be serving some other purpose.

Looking at the site under part of LeScoot, from the train.

Lots of signs on the construction walls now.

So, you can be a villager, a hot warrior chick . . .

. . . or a mascot for a certain football team in Minnesota.

Best start girding your loins for war!

So, they're being protected from the coaster the Vikings are building?
012.jpg
Those Vikings certainly are destructive.
013.jpg
Darn those darn ol' Vikings and all their digging! At least they're respecting the Chesapeake Bay Watershed by putting up those erosion barricades.

Here's an overhead, through-the-trees" shot of the construction site. The covered area is part of the LeScoot queue.

One last look at a bit of concrete-and-rebar work from the Alpengeist bridge.

Trappers' Village has a tough defense, but their offense in the "red zone" is questionable. That's all for now.

Its very odd seeing all that clear land in an area that was once forested. Its going to be interesting when the coaster starts to go veetical.

It's going to be a big change for New France--which hasn't seen any "big changes" in years (except for when they built the new Trappers Smokehouse).

And tore down the Canadian Palladium to install the Scrambler. Cannot ever forgive them for that since the Palladium is where I wrote and directed many country shows from 1994-1997.

Thanks for the update, Chuck. I hope this ride and/or queue has some good interaction with Le Scoot.

But at least they kept a flat ride, which was popular with kids and families.

I'm so excited for my trip to BGW next summer. I'm in VA at the moment, but only had 1 day to do a park and I figured Kings Dominions was a better one day park, Busch Gardens definitely looked more like a 2 day park with everything in it.
Coasters: 121 ( 89 Steel, 32 Wood)

Top 10 Wood: 1 Lightning Rod 2. Goliath 3. The Voyage 4. Mystic Timbers 5. American Thunder
6. The Legend 7. Thunderhead 8. The Boss 9. Great American Scream Machine 10. The Beast

Top 10 Steel: 1. Steel Vengeance 2. 1305 3. Maverick 4. Goliath (SFOG) 5. Fury 325 6. Twisted Timbers
7. Millenium Force 8.Twisted Cyclone 9. Top Thrill Dragster 10. TN Tornado
