I just wanted to know if anyone knows if Busch owns the land I've outlined in Yellow, if they do this will increase my faith in BGW by ten because right now they have about Zero land to expand in.

Couldn't say for sure. But I feel like they probably own it as a buffer, they don't want stuff built right up against the park. (If they indeed own it).

If I'm remembering from when I was on top of Griffon and looked around, that area is undeveloped. I would say that it probably is the barrier area for Busch. It could possibly be used for expansion, but not very must. You still have to have a barrier with residential areas.

If memory serves me right that area was purchased as a buffer to Kingsmill. Which of coarse we know can't be disturbed.

If my estimation is correct, the land is about 50% of the park land that currently is in use. Hopefully some of this can be used, seeing how little the space between the residental area and the park is South West of the Park.

Aren't Busch Gardens and Kingsmill owned by the same people? If so then it should belong to them because why would they have a huge gap of land there and not own it.

Kingsmill wasn't included in the sale to Blackstone. The last I heard, AB-InBev was seeking a buyer but I don't think anyone has made an offer.

Kingsmill was just sold, I believe today, and is now owned by a Denver-based resort chain, so maybe the buffer's status is in limbo. Just as a side note I took the Rhine River Cruise last visit and I was looking over at the area in question. Did you all know that huge powerlines used to split the original Busch land? You can still see the cleared land. I painted some red arrows pointing to the power lines. The photo credit goes to Wings. Sorry the sizing is off.
