    Project 2021: Pantheon

    So Wavy 10 is reporting that outdoor venues could have capacity restrictions lifted in April per a new release from the State. BGW falls under the "large amusement" category which has 50% capacity right now, so I could only imagine they would be able to also be open to 100% in April, since the...

    Project 2022/2023 (?): Festhaus Park Giga Coaster

    That's also a possibility I should have considered. Either way if the location and/or height of the highest point changes, I presume they'll have to file for a new determination.

    Project 2022/2023 (?): Festhaus Park Giga Coaster

    Not to take away from Zachary's sharp wit, but though this was pretty interesting.. I was looking back at the FAA evaluation of the height of the project (relative to nearby air traffic) and the permit expires exactly a month from today on 3/18. Why does this matter? Because if they don't start...

    Year-Round Operations Come to BGW

    So I'm guessing the plan is to go to normal operations once the "limited capacity" events are over (pending Governor Northam's approval)? It's weird to me that the Bier Fest is only on the weekends through the busy months.

    2020 Coasters and Craft Brews

    It was a similar situation for the 11am timeslot yesterday too. We didn't arrive quite as early as a half hour before, but we got over to FF around 10:55am and it seemed like it had already been running with guests.

    2020 Coasters and Craft Brews

    I'm not entirely sure. We asked the person at the exit gate when we were leaving why they had the entrance gates closed, and he just said they reached capacity and couldn't let anyone else in. It was just myself and my fiancée, and when we left two other people were let in. There were only two...

    2020 Coasters and Craft Brews

    As of now the park is turning away guests (or making them wait until people leave) because they've reached capacity. Not sure how that works with a reservation system... 🤔

    Nothing screams World's Most Beautiful Theme Park quite like fake shrubbery.

    Project 2022/2023 (?): Festhaus Park Giga Coaster

    It could be anything from clearing trees to excavation really. First step would be clearing though.

    Project 2022/2023 (?): Festhaus Park Giga Coaster

    Surprisingly enough, amidst the Coronavirus, BGW filed for a land disturbance permit today with the County. I'm guessing they're still planning on getting the work moving. I guess even if construction has to halt, they will at least have all of the permitting out of the way.

    Project 2021: Pantheon

    From my understanding of this particular easement, that is not exactly true. If it were any other easement (drainage, public utities, etc.) then yes, I believe that would be the case. But there are specific regulations in place for the Colonial Pipeline. For instance, they do aerial survey to...

    Project 2021: Pantheon

    Exactly this. Plus, remember that the Colonial Pipeline easement runs right through the plaza, hence why they aren't building any permanent structures in that area. The red lines are roughly where the easement runs. They could, in theory, build something in the future off to the right in the...

    He's likely the engineering consultant firm's (VHB's) project manager for this project. VHB serves as BGW's site civil consultant, so they're the ones who design the site plans (not the structural, mechanical, or architectural plans though).
