A couple of days ago I was very bored so I decided to make a Busch Gardens trivia power point. It has some basic stuff that everybody knows to things that are very hard. Enjoy :)
I also have one on Kings Dominion so go and check that one out too.
P.S. If there are any incorrect trivia things, please let me know so I can fix them. Thanks

RE: Busch Gardens V.A. trivia

I think the following question should be changed:

How long is the train? to How long is the railway?

Unless you have the answer to how long each train is??

Otherwise that is some good data. I learned quite a few things.

Thanks.

Yea, I wasn't really sure about the wording of that question. If I try hard enough, I may be able to find out how long the trains are.:)

RE: Busch Gardens V.A. trivia

The railroad is 1 1/2 miles long... I cant find out how long each of the trains are exactly... but both red and blue hold 350 people and green holds 250

^ Cool. Thanks. I will also do some research to see if I can find how long each train is. I should have it fixed by next Wednesday. If the train question is missing then that means that I couldn't find the answer. However, I will try to find it.

^No problem... I could tell you almost anything about the trains as I know some people who work/worked at the BGW RR... except how long the trains are.... you could probably use the pictures at amusement pics and do some math to find out how long they are... here's a measurement to get you started: the rails are 36" apart

RE: Busch Gardens V.A. trivia

This is really cool and I enjoyed reading through it. Thank you for putting it together! Two very minor thoughts though...

1. I draw a distiction between country and hamlet. For instance, is Oktoberfest a country or a hamlet? I suppose that is a debate for another thread.

2. On slide 5 where "arrow" is mentioned as the manufacturer of the coaster, I'd suggest capitalizing the A.

Sorry for being a nitpick :blush:

I haven't had the time to read though this yet, and this may be completely unrelated, but am I the only one to still have the entire script to Corkscrew Hill memorized?

(P.S. Does anyone know if it's "what's that landed over there LON FENTON or what's that landed over there THEN FENTON"?)

The difference is a hamlet represents a town, state, or region and is based off of a country. For example, Oktoberfest and Rhinefeld are different hamlets (cities or regions one may say) but they both represent Germany as a whole. Also here is a breakdown of what the hamlets vs countries are.

Banbury Cross - England

Heatherdowns - Scotland

Killarney - Ireland

Wild Reserve

Aquitaine, New France - France

Rhinefeld, Oktoberfest - Germany

San Marco, DaVinci's Gardens, Festa Italia, Pompeii - Italy

Forest of Fun - Sesame Street

As you can see Italy has the most dedicated hamlets and is probably the largest represented country in the park. But each of those hamlets are small sections, cities, or regions of the overall country.
