RE: Fun Facts - 2013

I adore these signs! I just wish they placed them around the park for more than just landscaping facts. Ride histories, park milestones... they should have little markers around like Easter Eggs of a video game. One big BGW Scavenger Hunt!

They did some of these during HoS, describing the different monster stories from the specific countries. But I agree with Nora, it would be nice to see them for the rides.

I asked once in a letter that while you were waiting in line for the Roller Coasters that they had a timeline of the ride's history.. from Construction and so on.. specs on height, speed, etc.. should be listed along with photos.

The older coasters had ride stats playing on the queue TVs for quite some time. Not sure if they still do it between the in-park commercials they overplay.

They had these signs out and about for Illuminights, HOS and Christmas Town last year. They're definitely a fun little read.
Yes. Yes they did. Gotta dig into my archives. :cool:

Yep, asked for that too, a long time ago... in a land far far away. My brain is pretty much locked on a never ending puzzle in Busch Gardens form.

Thanks for getting these CK! I only got to read a couple of them during HoS. It would be nice if we had a whole photographic collection of these. It's a nice touch.

Get ready to be disappointed. I know there were more signs around. I am missing four or so. I could not locate my images. Hopefully these will be back this year. :-/
I was gonna hold off a bit, but in the mean time...

I still say a farm in the middle of a forest is retarded beyond all means. With that said, I think Wunderbarn uses too many LED Christmas lights and that the whole show needs to be scrapped and replaced and I would much more prefer the CuCu Clock over this thing.

And back to the facts at hand, thanks so much CK for all the hard work in acquiring these photos!

I thought Clocktoberfest was kinda dumb too. The cuckoo clock looked really tacky in front of the Festhaus. I preferred seeing the stained glass and murals over the tacky props.

I don't have a problem with the park using Christmas lights and LEDs. I do have a problem with replacing the maypole with Wunderbarn. That was a terrible show (about as bad as Clocktoberfest was if not worse).
