Planning a trip to Bush Garden @ Christmas time

Saturday, November 10, 2012 6:25 PM

I am planning on going to Williamsburg, Virgina to Bush Gardens around Christmas time if it is thrill ride friendly for larger riders? I am interested in Apollo's Chariot, Griffon, Alpengeist, and Big Bad Wolf. My brother is about 280 and 6 ' 1 inches tall. Mostly stomach. I am 6'4" tall and 230 mostly stomach. Are the rides at this park real tight with their ride restrictions? We went to Cedar Point in the summer and were disappointed on the ride size issues. We do NOT want to fly out of state if we will have problems getting on the rides that we came for. All opinions here are appreciated. Thanks!

I think the only one you're gonna have real trouble with is Big Bad Wolf...

The only coaster open is Verbolten

Yeah they only open one coaster and this year it's Verbolten. If you want more rides in December, go to Dollywood.

Does Dollywood have more coasters that would fit the bill on bigger riders? We went to Magic Mountain last year and rode everything except Superman that he did not fit.......Grrrrr! Texas 6 Flags Arlington the year before......GREAT TIME!

The only thing I could see mmmmaybe being an issue at Dollywood is Mystery Mine. Otherwise y'all should be fine.

After you live in the South long enough, the apostrophe moves over a letter...

ROFL! 'Cept "you all" is still too yankee-fied. "Ya all" is the contraction I'm looking for when I've got a sweet tea in one hand and some slo-cook'd BBQ in tha other. The contracted letter to me is the first 'a' in "all."

Then again, living in Joisey growing up, the expression was "yous guys" - we didn't have the Pittsburghers "yinz."

Apologies to Jeff for the brutalisation of the English language....but it is with an educational goal in mind. ;~P

You wanna get real southern, you say Ya'lls. Or You'ins. (Which is both singular and plural)
