So, I was doing more searching on Google Images (remember, I have no life. Smiling) and I found this picture.

   

It looks like concept art of Apollo and Festa while AC was in the works/ being constructed. Too bad it didn't turn out like that. Smiling

Don't worry, I still love you Busch Gardens!

Nice find! I actually think it somewhat resembles what it's actually like today. Something I find interesting is the color scheme of the ride, shown to be blue and orange. Cool!

^ Yes, the concept art looks similar to the real hamlet, but the concept has more tents and it has a couple of turns in the path, which is lacking in the real hamlet.

Don't worry, I still love you Busch Gardens!

More changes. From 2004. The now missing sign and wagon.

I love this wagon! Do we know if it is still in one piece or part of a HOS maze or something?

I believe it's still intact, it was just never put back after Christmas Town last year. Not sure what kind of shape it's in after a year backstage though. Things don't seem to get much TLC when they're not on display. Undecided

I don't think that wagon got much TLC while is was ON display. It was in pretty bad shape just sitting there.

I would love to see them do a full restoration on the wagon and place it back. The gravel pad would be easy to replace and if the wagon is in good shape moving it every year would not be a big deal.

The Killarney wagon was the stripped bottom in CTC. It had it's top during Fear Fair in 2012. You could still see it was complete from Apollo during the Spring of this year.

Photos are at the bottom here and here.

I may have some video or photos when it had the puppet show in it.

The Killarney Wagon was also in an haunted house: Cursed, as the witches wagon...

Those are two different wagons, Preston.  The wagon you're talking about has been in many mazes in Festa.
