This looks like an improvement over Winter Weekends. More live entertainment including a cirque show in Globe. Specialty food.

Sky ride is still running as well as same coasters. IMO train should run in the winter. It’s a slow moving all weather ride. They also need to do something with Eire for these events. But this is the right direction.

Very excited to see what the Carnaval Imaginique show ends up being! Seems like there is a lot of potential there and hopefully Busch gets it right.

I'm definitely confused as to why the train isn't running, unless they are doing major refurbishment work such as replacing track or ties.

I didn't go last year so this is all new to me. Do food places like the Festhaus and Smokehouse have their regular menu?

The train always has annual maintenance done on it. It is the best time of year due to the lower attendance compared to other months of the year. Also, the Loch Ness Tressle is having major work done up top on it currently.

Never seen more than maybe 2 people at a time interact with a DJ, so it kinda seems a waste.

Maybe they are more popular on Saturday evenings when people get drunk. I try to avoid those days.

They have put up information about the ‘Mardi Gras Crawl’ tour, however you have to go into the event on the page and then scroll down to the tour. It’s not listed under park tours. Maybe because it’s a special event? Not sure. Anyways, here’s what I found:

Unless they are doing maint on the tracks, there are 3 trains to rotate. Tampa runs theirs year round. I think it’s more about saving operational costs.

Wow!! If I'm reading the Mardi Gras Crawl correctly it will cost $400 for 2 people! It says it requires 2 people and it is $199 each. I'm sure they are adding tax to that. Sorry, but there is nothing at BGW worth me paying $400 to see or do. EVER!

Anyone who is breaking down the cost of the Mardi Gras Crawl offering is well outside of the target audience for said offering. 😉

I'd, of course, never book something like it. That said, I love that it exists because I know there are people who do value an experience like that highly enough to book it and it's essentially pure profit for the park. Very limited audience, high margin, luxury experiences like this are great in my opinion.

But is it actually the same show those of who've ever seen it it know and love?

I call bullshit united there's laser light graphics, random pyro, weird Frenchie Cirque stuff, and beads all over the place!

I mean it could be the regular VIP tour that costs $350/person… and has to be booked at least 3 days in advance to avoid a fee (I think $25), and has to have a minimum of 2 people on it.
