Busch Gardens Williamsburg Questions!

Wednesday, June 6, 2001 6:01 PM

This Saturday (06-09-01), my friend and I are going to BGW with his Boy Scout Troop. Eventhough I'm not a Boy Scout, Thank Goodness, I am able to go to BGW and Water Country USA with them. I need to get opinions, suggestions, and park layout ideas, So I turn to the peeps of Coasterbuzz to help.

Here is what I'd like to know!

1. What Time Does The Park Open?
2. What Time Does it Close?
3. What Coaster Should We Go to First?
4. What Time is the Lunch Time Rush At?
5. Where is some of the best places to eat Dinner At?
6. What are some of the quickest routes to Apollo's Chariot and Alpenguist?
7. What have the Ride Lines been lately in Length?
8. What Flat Rides are Great to Ride?
9. Any Other Information Will Be Great!

Any Answers will be of great assistance. I'm going to be leaving some time on Friday. Also, if any of you are going there, lemme know what you'll be wearing so I can keep an eye out. I'm not sure what I'll be wearing, but hopefully good enough for the weather conditions.

Thanks a Million!

This is the tried-and-true BGW strategy:

Get there ASAP. Run to Apollo/Italy holding area. Ride Apollo a few times. Run to the train station a few yard from Apollo. Get off at Alpie. Ride Alpie a few times. Go to Wild Maus then BBW then LNM. That should take aboot 1-1.5 hours. Now, since ye got all the coasters out of the way, you are free to explore and hit up the single riders line at APOLLO'S CHARIOT!

p.s Das Festaus is good, m'kay.

"8. What Flat Rides are Great to Ride?"

Well...there is Davinchi's Cradle! It is so much fun!

Whatever you do, don't try to walk from the boardwalk down by the loops of lochness, to Oktoberfest. It is the steepest hill. Your legs will be jelly after doing that.

BGW doesn't really have flat rides I'd recommend except for Davinci's Cradle (this is the same ride as Kennywood's Flying Carpet). Most of the other flat rides are park/boardwalk standards such as the pirate ship, scrambler, music express etc. that don't really stand out but can be ridden if your bored. They do have one really strange flat ride next to Davinci's Cradle though that I think is an old Huss spinning ride. Make sure you ride Escape from Pompeii which is a well-themed, doesn't-get-you-that-wet, shoot-the-chutes.
