A mere two weeks after Carl Lum vacated the position of Busch Gardens Williamsburg Park President, SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment has officially announced his replacement: David Cromwell. If you have followed the Williamsburg SEAS parks for a couple years now, this name may ring a bell. Who is he? Before becoming the Vice President of Aquatica at SeaWorld […]

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 […]

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. I encourage you all to read the rest of the post, but know that we’re now dealing in park-confirmed fact instead of my assessment of small shreds of evidence. Deeper analysis into the […]

Howl-O-Scream: Unearthed

Disclaimer: Ultimately, everything presented below is still technically best described as a rumor. Though right now I’m very confident in the information I’m presenting, I have been wrong before. Furthermore, given the length of time we have till the event begins, the park may still be finalizing their plans. We will do our best to keep […]

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 […]

Tempesto Construction Update #4

It has been nearly a month since guests were last able to see what has been happening at the construction site for Busch Gardens Williamsburg’s new, still unannounced coaster, Tempesto. Turns out that during that time, the park has made a ton of progress. What all is done? Well, both massive support towers have begun […]

October Line of Sight Test

While Tempesto is certainly the park’s major ongoing construction endeavor right now, there are a few other projects in the works around the park as well.

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, […]

We’re coming to the end of July and year after year that always means one thing for BGWFans: It’s Howl-O-Scream leaks season!

Star Spangled Nights Construction & Highland Cattle

As I’m sure many of you have noticed, it has been a while since we’ve had a photo update to share. Why? Well because, in all honesty, aside from dumping paint on The Globe Theatre, the park really hasn’t been up to all that much lately. Anyway, today’s post focuses on preparations for the park’s latest thematically-questionable […]
