This hasn't been widely talked about publicly but it's really relevant information to this question...Whether marketing will decide to again "take a risk" with sharing details about the ride in advance, and whether they intend to crowd source input like "Decide the Ride," as they did last year with InvadR. More a curiosity on whether the park viewed the InvadR experience as a net positive and worth repeating...
Since InvadR, much of the top brass in Busch Gardens Williamsburg's marketing department has departed. Dan, the previous VP of Marketing, was promoted to Orlando. Ron, a professional journalist prior to his stint at BGW and Dan's second in command, has also left the company in the last couple months.
I'd not expect the new marketing leadership to take the same chances Dan was willing to unfortunately. Hopefully they'll prove me wrong.
It's certainly possible that they will add some additional Killarney alterations later on down the line, but no one I've talked to and nothing I've seen has suggested that this project will expand beyond the front left corner of the hamlet.I am honestly curious if this truly is just an addition, or if we are going to see some existing things in Killarney impacted enough to where it is considered a loss of something, so minor as it may be.
I'll see if I can make impacts of the addition a bit clearer in my next article. Long story short though, it's impossible that a flat ride this large not leave quite a mark.How significant an impact will this have on the natural areas?
