Inflatable prop blows in front of Griffon with approaching storm at Busch Gardens Williamsburg

Posted | Contributed by ridemcoaster

Several guests at Busch Gardens got quite a scare during the storms that barreled through the area late Thursday night and into the early morning hours on Friday. At around 7:30 p.m. a strong, sudden gust of wind knocked an inflatable prop into the path of the Griffon which forced it to get stuck at the top. Riders were helped down by emergency crews some time later. Several guests were treated at the park; five were taken to a nearby hospital.
