    Busch Gardens References in Unexpected Places

    Found an unexpected Busch Gardens reference while watching Big Mouth on Netflix! (Audio is ever-so-slightly NSFW.)

    Existing Roller Coaster Anaconda

    Did we ever figure out why Anaconda - which has only ever run two trains - even has a MCBR? It's a mystery that has always bothered me.

    Defunct Transport Ride SkyRide

    I've never thought about how the Americana gondolas sort of look like the skyride cars, but since you mentioned it, you might be interested to know that the Ferris wheel is located in almost the exact same spot as the skyride's western station!

    In-Park Music

    Believe it or not, Flight of Fear actually DOES have its own theme. It plays in the main show building and, if you're there on a good day, in the exit hallway. Here's a video of it, posted by @cschnizer in the FOF thread: As for the rest of the park and attractions, the park took a giant leap...

    Defunct Roller Coaster Volcano: The Blast Coaster

    I think it looks pretty sweet TBH.

    2020 October COVID Howl-O-Scream Replacement Event

    I doubt they'd do it, but if the haunted train were going to make a comeback, this would be the perfect year. The train has a massive capacity so social distancing would be easy, and they could rely mostly on storytelling and spooky atmospherics to create an intriguing experience without needing...

    Park Maps

    Amazing find @Applesauce! Did anyone notices Squire’s Grill is called Squire’s Galley? When did that name change?

    2020 Coasters and Craft Brews

    So most of the employees at the park are just random seasonal employees?

    2020 Coasters and Craft Brews

    On rule enforcement. Hasn’t it been said that basically the only staff at the park right now is full-time employees and managers? If the park were being operated by hyoung high school and college students paid by the hour like in most seasons, I could at least understand the apathy to enforcing...

    2020 Coasters and Craft Brews

    I think the park needs to start putting team members in a highly visible part of each queue. It would only require about 6 or 7 additional staff members throughout the whole park, but it would seriously improve mask enforcement and social distancing. Queues, being so out-of-view of park staff...

    Existing Roller Coaster Verbolten

    Hey hey HEY. That sound is one of my favorite things about Verbolten. I just love that almost breathy sound it makes sucking you into that first launch. It’s unlike any other launch I’ve ever heard, including other LSMs.

    Existing Roller Coaster Grizzly

    Agreed! Literally renaming the gift shop in front of the entrance "Grizzly Gulch General Store" - and heavily theming it to the ride - was a good start, but I've still seen guests missing it all the time. They really need some giant sign that says "Grizzly entrance this way" somewhere around the...

    Did you not listen to the “Hold on to your hats?” message before the drop??
