I am visiting BushGardnes Williamsburg at the end of june ,and im preety excited about Teh lochness monsterbecuaseI always heard about it since I was younger, and never got to ride it untill now,and so I was wondering dose it meet at the interlocking loops? I heard its only when they run 3 trains,and im visiting on a sunday, so they prop will run all 3 trains? I really hope it dose, that would be great.

That would be great. They will probably be running three trains on a Sunday. I hope it works out.
~I rode my first coaster June 2001 and since then I have ridden 43 different coasters!

That's a great ride but you have to ride Apollos and Alpengeist too. The Big Bad Wolf and Lochness are both the sleeper coasters at that park. Be sure to eat in Germany at the huge cafeteria, the corned beef there is spectacular. Sorry for not talking about Lochness that much but I hope they do meet in the loops, that'd be kool.

Yes it is very possible for them to meet at the loops. They could very well do it even with two trains (but they would have to hold one of the trains on the second lift hill and hold it there and time it with the first.) Usually they are a little off with 3 trains, but if you sit down there with a Big funnel cake and icecream for a while, take in the view, you're bound to see it happen before too long :) Have fun and check out the Ireland section...DON'T MISS THE SHOWS OVER THERE!!! Many people pass by what I would consider to be two of the best theme park shows ever, over in the Ireland section ;)

No Nessie will most likely not meet in the interlocking loops unless we have a large amount of guest at the park and have to run 3 trains or another coaster in the park is down which never happens here. The highest chance of see Nessie running 3 trains is on a Saturday. Nessie is a good classic ride but it and Big Bad Wolf are sleepers compared to Apollo's Chariot and Alpengeist. I say eat at Three Rivers Smoke House. And they never ever hold the trains at the second lift to try and make em go through the loops because that will mean a longer wait for the park guest.
Fear The two Apollo’s Chariot,which boasts nine drops,totaling 825-feet!and Alpengeist,the world’s tallest at(195-feet!),fastest at(67 mph!)and most twisted inverted roller coaster.

Ahhh the smoke house....now there's some good food. Yum. As for the 2 trains intersecting...yes it can be done as mentioned, but as also mentioned. Will it be done? No. Anyone know who works there, if it is possible for the two to intersect in the loops without holding the second lift? Via a delayed station hold or a fast station turn out? I'm not exactly sure (time wise) how long it takes to go through the first half and the second half. Oh, and the waffle cones there are awesome ;)

Phaethon, don't stop talking now, our school band is going to be playing at a music festival down in Colonial Williamsburg. I need all the info I can get and you sound like just the person. Our trip to play at Disneyworld turned out as a wreck because we had no idea where we were going in those parks.
(Played at Disneyworld and told to enter competition. From gold metal at state competition, to opening weekend at Six Flags New England, and now we've been requested to play at a music fesitval in Colonial Williamsburg.)
