Homages to the Kong attraction can be found in several areas within the Mummy attraction, including a golden statue of King Kong in the second scene of the ride.

Exactly!

The Rhine Drop is following the same path at the BBW. For many that alone will have a nostalgic feel to it. That is way more than enough reference of the former ride that one stood in that location. Seeing any obvious references to BBW in the Verbolten queue or immediate ride area would seem so random and so out of place. BBW is gone and it's time for the park to usher in a new breed of ride!

Coulda said it better! I'm so tired of hearing about BBW in this thread.

Waking up fresh every mornin'; Openin' up for you; Waitin' for your laughter; With so much new to do! Busch—Gardens! Busch—Gardens! Come to Busch Gardens and come to life! Come to Busch Gardens and come—to life!

BG Facebook: "Happy Friday, fans. Be sure to stop by the Verbolten fence this weekend to scan our QR code for the latest coaster update."

If somebody could get the link, that would be awesome.

Holy crap, they are cruising on getting that track on there. Last Sunday there was no track yet at all. This is really making me excited. I can't wait for it to get finished so we can ride it!

I can honestly say, it just looks fun. Period. Screw thrills, this just looks fun. I think they have found the perfect balance and I cannot wait to ride it.

I have been waiting and waiting for this! Goodness it feels like forever ago now I read that news of BBW's removal, and felt anxious about its replacement.... You all probably remember my rant posts about being impatient about the wait for news. I am just so happy we finally have something to look foward to at a point inn time next year.....

Looks PHENOMENAL!

To the unsuspecting patron, the track alone will fool some into thinking this is Busch's Intamin installment to combat King's Dominion, when in fact, it's a whole 'nother story. April can't come any sooner!

"Apollo's Chariot is a hypercoaster, designed to achieve great height, and high rates of speed, including nine drops, the first of which plunges passengers 210 feet. Apollo's Chariot, by it's very nature, creates forces and speeds which may not be acceptable to some persons, and may cause injury to those with pre-existing conditions."

Great Pictures Chris!

Track looks great, those turns up and down those hills should be a lot of fun in the dark!
