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.

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. For the record, I’m not […]
