  • Project 2017 Site Plans It seems that Busch Gardens Williamsburg really doesn’t want a repeat of the Tempesto incident. So, for the first time ever, the park’s marketing department seems to be fighting aggressively to keep the spotlight squarely on their official Project 2017 information… and off of unofficial sources like the one you’re reading now.
