It has been nearly a month since guests were last able to see what has been happening at the construction site for Busch Gardens Williamsburg’s new, still unannounced coaster, Tempesto. Turns out that during that time, the park has made a ton of progress. What all is done? Well, both massive support towers have begun rising skyward and, even better yet, the first pieces of track have already started going in! Now that true vertical construction has begun, the pictures below will be fairly self explanatory so I won’t bore you with a ton of information as to what you’re looking at. That said, the captions for each of the pictures below will contain some basic information about the contents of the shot or where it was taken from so you can get your bearings if need be.
