Here at BGWFans, we have a little bit of an obsession with the history of our beloved park and that means we have to tirelessly search for remnants of the past. I remember as a child watching a video in school about a physics class that was being held at Busch Gardens and, as I recall, the video also included footage of Dana Carvey impersonating Arnold Schwarzenegger at the opening of Drachen Fire (could have been a different video). I seem to remember him talking from the elevated platform on the front of Das Festhaus. I’m not the only one looking for this video. I recently received a question asking if I had the video in question, obviously I had to tell him that I didn’t have it, but I was going to join the search for the video.
This is the comment I received on a post:
On the video it features:
Haunts of The Old Country
Physics Day (Students rode Drachen Fire with accelerometers)
Elvis Impersonators ride The Lochness Monster
Corkscrew Hill or Questor (Im not sure which one)
And a tour of the park in general.
Back in 2002 My house suffered a major fire where I lost this and many other irreplaceable items. I have looked all over the internet for this video and have yet to find it.
This is my last hope to ever find this video
If you have it or know were to find it please let me know, I would really appreciate it.
If you do have this video, there are a ton of people that would be very appreciative and I will pay to have the video converted to a digital format as well as give you credit for holding on to the video and being able to provide it to us.
If you do have it, go ahead and leave a comment on this post, making sure to include your email, and I’ll get in contact with you from there.
