New limited event, I’ll update this post with key point in a bit.

My guess would be next Thursday, August 6th. I think you can expect to see Squire's and O'Taters open. With the various smaller stands in those countries also opening with the exception that there will probably only be one funnel cake shop open.

As for rides I would expect all the flat rides in Scotland and France/New France to open. And for Loch Ness, Finnegan's, Invadr and Griffon to be open. But I am less optimistic and sure about those as I am about the restaurants that are opening. There's a chance that they only open 1 or 2 of the big rides right now
Do I get a prize for being almost 100% correct?

Really only got done in by the fact that they're not actually opening England, and basically funneling people through to Trapper's for food (which makes sense).

Yes, but meal plans don’t apply.

This is definitely the thing that's going to create the most consternation, I would say. The membership situation is fair.

Yeah England was apparently a last minute change in plans. It seems that everyone will be entering through the park into Ireland

I wonder if that might have been a specific concession with the State health department? Specific concerns about the congestion points in England, and the possibility of a lot of stopping/starting/congregating at a main point of entrance and egress? It's hard to say, but it does take away some of their core shopping experiences.

But hey, maybe they open England for when—if this proves popular/doesn't lose TOO much money—they do an Italy/Germany version of the same event in September?

Ok reading the FAQ and the post here. I'm feeling better about what they are doing with this. Members seem to be taken care of, allowing them this event free and continued support of the COVID-19 "benefits".

Oh, nevermind, here's an excerpt from the FAQ.

"Will all the villages be open at Busch Gardens during the event?
The following select Villages will be open for guests to enjoy:
  • Scotland
  • Ireland
  • France
  • New France

What Rides will be open?
Coasters:
  • Griffon
  • Loch Ness Monster
  • InvadR
Rides:
  • Finnegan's Flyer
  • Le Catapult
  • Li'l Clydes
Note:The rides listed above will be the only attractions operational during the Coasters and Craft Brews special event."

If either Alpengeist or Apollo were open, I'd go, but both? Sorry I think I'll wait until full opening.
If a mod wants to embed my quote that'd be great, sorry, having trouble doing it myself.
