It has been rumored for a while now that 2017 would be Busch Gardens Williamsburg’s next “coaster year.” There were many questions, when we leaked Tempesto’s plans in 2014, about why BGW would pick a clone for their next e-ticket attraction.  In fact, during construction, it was rumored that the […] Nicole

  • BGW Loses Its Noggin; Cuts Severed Heads from Howl-O-Scream Well, apparently this is happening… Today we’re seeing an absurd protest from an incredibly small number of people, triggering what may very well be one of the largest overreactions by BGW in recent memory. Busch Gardens Williamsburg staff have spent the past 24 hours removing all the severed heads from the park. This bowdlerization is a problem because, […] Zachary
