• Early June BGW Update It has been a long time since BGWFans published a basic, barebones, in-park construction update to its frontpage. Instead, progress photos for new rides, shows, etc have been largely relegated to our various social media channels for the past few years. That said, now that we have a major new roller coaster to keep tabs on […] Zachary

  • Project Madrid is a Coaster In an effort to avoid burying the lead, let’s jump right into the news. One of our forum members, kingadam, tipped us off to a new filing with James City County regarding Busch Gardens Williamsburg’s Festa Field plans (codenamed Project Madrid).

Though we don’t know everything the park is planning to reveal on the 19th, hopefully we can relieve a little bit of that intense suspense tonight. It’s time to leak BGW’s […] Zachary

  • Saving Le Scoot As many of you know, Busch Gardens Williamsburg has spent the last three years renovating the park’s 41 year-old Arrow log flume, Le Scoot. 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 […] Zachary

  • 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 […] Zachary

  • Tempesto Construction Update #6 It’s time for another Tempesto Construction update! If you missed the last one it can be viewed here. Because the park is now closed till sometime in March, this will most likely be the last in-park Tempesto construction update for a while. Over the last couple weeks, Tempesto has been growing like a weed. On the 31st alone, […] Matthew

  • Tempesto Construction Update #5 Well, it’s probably long over-due, but it’s time for another Tempesto construction update!

  • 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 […] Zachary
