New For 2017

Wooden Coaster at Busch Gardens Williamsburg In 2017

Wooden Coaster at Busch Gardens Williamsburg In 2017

Busch Gardens Williamsburg announced that their 2017 project would be a new compact wooden coaster that would feature a theme all about Vikings attackingthe trapper's village of New France.

Now manufacture was given, though I've heard it said elsewhere that it is likely a GCI design, but I haven't been able to get a confirmation of that yet. The coaster will feature a 74 ft first drop and hit a maximum speed of 48mph and hit 9 airtime hills.

The odd thing about the teaser video (see below) is that it mentions guests can "Attach with the Viking or Protect the Village", but I'm not sure how that will play out on a wooden coaster experience.

The website also calls it the "world's first crowdsourced ride" where we will all be able to "decide the ride" and help co-create the experience starting with voting for the ride's name between "Viking Raider", "InvadR" or "Battle Klash".

Meanwhile a new look at the coaster's layout has been posted in the latest set of leaked documents posted to BGWFans that is also worth checking out.
