Some more activity at James City County Planning Department.
A permit has been submitted on 3-29-2018 for a special use permit to build a 15,500 s.f. event building.

I am guessing that it really is renovating DK but I could be wrong.

Something interesting here. JCC Defines M-1 zoning (which they labled this building):
Quote:The primary purpose of the Limited Business/Industrial District, M-1, is to establish an area where the principal use of land is for limited business/industrial operations which are not ordinarily compatible with adjacent residential development. The specific intent of this district is to accomplish the following:

(1) Encourage the use of land for limited business and industrial purposes; (2) Prohibit residential developments on land reserved for limited business and industrial uses; (3) Permit certain commercial and office uses in a manner which is compatible with limited business and industrial uses; and (4) Establish minimum requirements to protect the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of James City County from the effects or impacts commonly associated with the development of limited business and industrial uses.

I'm not sure what the rest of the park is zoned, but it seems as though this is something that would be sales+backstage.

For size reference, 15,500 sq ft is about half the size of Festhaus. A hair smaller than the entry and ride area of BfE. Roughly the same footprint of EfP's event building.

What might "build" mean in the context of that application?

"Build" = Build
"Build" = Renovate?
"Build" = Repurpose?
"Build"  = Change out internal systems but keep building structure mostly unchanged?

Knowing that much would help to narrow down the possibilities...

New construction. JCC provides a glossary of terms, and build is new construction. They would be pulling a permit under renovations with more defined work if they were working on an existing structure.

Additionally, after looking and using google earth to measure: There's nothing currently on BGW's property of that size.

Huge thanks for the heads-up Celticdog!

Just so everyone knows, I've already contacted JCC's Planning Department to get more information about this project. Hopefully we'll know more by tomorrow.

Personally what I find interesting is there's no GPS tag for the location. Very open ended. This might be a pre-agreed upon thing with JCC though to keep future attractions on the hush with location.

Tried to find other attractions that were about the same size, came up with Boo Blasters at KD, Action Theater at Carowinds, Laff Track and Reece's Xtreme Cup Challenge at HP.

It I were to guess with the little information we have, I might suggest it might be a new event building for special events. I suggest it because the park could be losing the locations for Lumberhacked and Unearthed this year. I'm not sure the park wants to lose two mazes without replacements in one year.

I would personally like a good version of Boo Blasters or Extreme Cup. Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin is a favorite...must get 999999 on both guns every ride!

A dark ride to fill the DarKastle void would be fantastic. That definitely felt missing from my day Sunday and I highly doubt BfE will be a sufficient supplement. BGW is the type of park you expect to have a great dark ride somewhere.

Sorry about the delay. I had hoped to get this up yesterday afternoon but I'm afraid I may be coming down with something... Frowning

Anyway... about that permit.
