The last few balloon tests were fairly well known to being done those days by employees.
Yeah but balloon tests are not a short time frame. The balloon can be up for a pretty considerable amount of time. Certainly long enough for people to see it.Even before documents were filed, actually.
As initially reported via Twitter this morning, BGWFans can now confirm that a red line of sight balloon was flown over the park this morning. According to eyewitnesses, the balloon appeared to be located behind Apollo’s Chariot—likely in the area currently occupied by the stables behind Festa...bgwfans.com
2021 was a similar situation, I think.
There may be more story there than just someone happening to drive by and take pictures
I would hashtag the drop out of it TBH. @ both BGW and BGWFans. # SEAS, BGW, Busch Gardens, MyBGWStory, ACE, (no matter what you think of them), Themeparks, Amusement Parks, Colonial Williamsburgh, WCUSA.....basically anything related that people would search in relation to BGW.My small contribution to the above:.
Last year the park was really pushing the hashtag #mybgwstory so any 'campain' we run - it might be good to include that too.
But they work better angry so.....Personally I hope they never let BGW Fans back for any media event. What you all have done is immoral, disgusting, rude, and unprofessional. Shame on you.
Just kidding. Pissed off BGW Fans is the best BGW Fans. The past week has been a blast 😃
So I think that anything like this will be have to be put together by the community. I suspect the admins cant risk being directly involved; regardless of how much they might want to.I would buy this in a heartbeat. Just a white shirt that says #freebgwfans on the front. Can we make this happen?
Nicole and Zachary – First, I want to thank you again for working with us so collaboratively on the Membership rollout and soliciting ideas for additional Member benefits. This has been extremely helpful, and I trust it will be mutually beneficial as some of these ideas become implemented.

I wanted to share this news with you not to make a big deal about myself, but to encourage you to continue doing what you do best, which is reporting with a level of detail and commitment that serves true fans of the parks. While speculation and commentary on the forum can get a little annoying, and sometimes grossly unfair and misinformed, I have always believed it comes with the territory. We are fortunate to have such passionate, interested fans – even if sometimes their passion run amok. I think in recent times you have done a nice job of threading the needle between collaborating with us on important topics of concern to your readers and still keeping us accountable and on our toes. I trust that relationship will continue, as I believe it ultimately benefits the fans we both serve.
Best of luck to you … and I’ll still keep your site on my bookmarks so I can check in from afar.
