  • Halloween 2016 Giveaway On a recent trip to Busch Gardens Tampa, Nicole and I stumbled upon a treasure trove of Unearthed: Scarlett’s Revenge trading cards. These cards were a massive hit up here in Williamsburg but, due to BGW selling out of both card packs and Unearthed boxes (which also contained a pack in each), many Williamsburg Howl-O-Scream […]

From the beginning of this project, BGWFans has expressed time and time again how impressed we are that the park is making the investments required to restore this 1975 park original. A […]

  • 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.

  • Locating Project 2017 February 3rd, 2016 (11:10 AM) Update: Hours after finishing this post, Busch Gardens Williamsburg published a second video quite literally confirming the red area in the map below.

Though right now I’m very confident in the information I’m presenting, I have been wrong before.

  • First Howl-O-Scream 2015 Details Begin to Emerge It may only be mid-July but Busch Gardens Williamsburg has already begun promoting Howl-O-Scream’s seventeenth season across its social media channels. Anyone who has made an annual habit out of following the event will likely recognize it to be an uncharacteristically early start to Howl-O-Scream promotion. In the past the park has often waited until mid-August or later […]
