Saturday, August 31, 2002 8:03 PM
I've heard rumors that busch gardens williamsburg might be getting the haunted lighthouse attraction like tampa, is this true. The lighthouse atraction will replace Pirites 4D. But do you think a huanted lighthouse fits the theme of england?

Does Pirates 4D, set on a tropical island, fit the theme of England?

From what I've heard haunted lighthouse is the only thing BGW will be getting in 03,maybe they'll get a new coaster in 04 because they realy could use a new one by then.

I've never been to BGW, but it looks like they need a woodie.

not a rumor, but a fact. In December BGW will remodel their New France country. No new rides have been confirmed however, just combining both restaurants and spending thousands of dollars to make their trains look better. That idea was Mr. Busch, how visits the park very often.

Now I don't know about about the remodeling of France. The trains are all scaled down replicas of the real ones in Europe so I see no change being done to them.

Red Dog 40 just believe the poster AC in you'r other forum he has good info and he works at BGW. I've talked to him a number of times and he has never givin me any false in only fact.

I belive somthing big is going in 2004, if we get the haunted lighthouse attraction wich does sound a little interesting. I think in 2004 BGW will get a woodie in Ireland, or a floorless or flyer in DF's old spot. Only time will tell. Howl-o-scream sounds a little ineresting this year, they are supposed to re theme thier countries to howloween countries.

Remodeling of New France????? Will it become a new country all together like they did with Hastings to Ireland? I do remember hearing back in the late 1990's about BGW wanting to add Spain as a country. Is that still going to happen sometime in the future?

If so, don't get rid of the beef brisket at Three Rivers Smokehouse. ;)

I think something big will be happining in 04 and 05. 2005 will be BGW's 30th anniversary season. Howl-O-Scream does sound more interesting this year than it did in the previous years. I hope Spain will be coming down the line one day for Busch.

I saw a preview of Haunted Lighthouse yesterday. It looked kind of childish to me but yet still interesting.

As for woodies BGW has tended to shy away from these coasters in the past because wooden coasters require a largeer clearing footprint than steel coasters. Larry Giles said who is Vice President of Design and Engineering for BGW http://www.themeparks.com/buschw/bgwchat022599.htm

I would love to see a Spain I already have created one and actually drew it. I would love to seean Intium rocket coaster and name it El Diablo. It will be themed very well. I would also love to see a graviton type ride at BGW, the one like Ripsaw at Alto Towers I think those rides look awsome, I think thats what Tomb Raider is too. Talking about retheming France. 1. What France, New Frane or Aqutaine and 2. Retheme it to what are they just doing rehab or what.

No Tomb Radier is a Huss Top Spin. An Intamin rocket coaster named El Diablo sounds cool. Ragging Bull would be a cool name but it's been used. I hope B&M design an XLC for BGW. You should post you'r pic of Spain.

I heard somewhere that they are going to replace Pirates4D with a new movie.

If you go down a bit, Vulcan posted their new attraction to replace Pirates4D. I believe Vulcan runs Starcoasters.com

I heard somewhere that BGW was going to make all their patrons learn to spell..... Did you guys all drop out of school or something? Sheesh...........

I doubt BGW will put anything into the former Drachen Fire's space. Getting there was half of the problem with the ridership. Ireland sounds much more realistic, although I don't know where I could predict it going. I would love to see a terrain woodie, but time will tell. Perhaps a first build from the Gravity Group?

nasai, I wanted a woodie in Ireland named Banshee....but "everyone" says that name has been tried and failed the test....;)

re: DF's spot...according to the park, it will be used for picnics, etc....

Hey now, I like that name... Banshee! :):)
*end sarcasm*

Gator...BTW, when are you coming out to hit the Northwest's premier coasters? You know, Wild Thing? The PNE Vekoma? Looping Star?;)

If anyone worked their, like i did for the past two summers, u would know that they are remodeling new France and the trains. The only rumor is the coaster and this haunted lighthouse. The trains are being remodeled only to be repainted and to have more brass.

cancel out all hopes for any coaster in Ireland. The only place a coaster would be able to fit would be between the bridge entrance and the train, and in the middle of that is a road for maintenance workers. Beside and behind Ireland is the employee enterance so their is really no room for a coaster in Ireland. The Royal Palace petting zoo was surpose to be moved their, but thats about it.
