BGW and woodies...noise restrictions???

Wednesday, May 30, 2001 6:51 PM
If this thread was already discussed, my apologies. I would have used search, but it always times out on me.
Is it true that one reason no woodie has been built at BGW is due to noise restrictions? I heard this and thought "what the hell?" How could that be a legitimate reason not to build one? And yet, surely they would have a woodie by now. Is it a town/county thing? What is close enough around there where a woodie would be too noisy? Maybe BGW thinks a woodie would spook the Clydesdales? Ever hear Loch Ness climb its hill!?

Mother, did it need to be so high?

Jeff's avatar Sounds strange to me. The terrain hides so much ride noise to begin with. Not only that, but who even lives near that property?

I doubt that is true. The park is literally surrounded by fields, a beer factory, a highway, and a forest. One interesting thing. In Williamsburg there is a small I believe 1-lane road that you can drive on that goes through the woods and you can see lots of deer and stuff. Interesting enough, while we were driving at one point through the trees on the other side of a fence was the train at BGW, so the park was very close. There are no homes near the area though, and the trees stifle the noise anyway.
