Decoding 2020

Recommended Posts

Not really sure where they came to the conclusion that BGW would be getting a 355 ft tall coaster ?.... As @Logan Goddard said above, an Intamin Multi-Launch coaster has been all-but confirmed (the blueprints are out there) for next year. The likely outcome of this 2021 project would be a Drop Tower. 

 

For those curious, the link below provides some insight into the 2021 project and the 2020 Intamin multilaunch, both for Busch Gardens Williamsburg:

Does anyone have any clue to why we're seeing more trees knocked down as of now? We've seen what we believe to be the layout of this ride, so could X-Base be getting some flats as well (in tune to what CF did with the area where Copperhead Strike was placed, for instance) or is this just something ordinary (thinking of last year's venture in the Giga Speculation Thread where trees were being cleared by The Beast just because of termites or something like that).

My guess is now that they have the station footers drilled, they were able to physically look down the line and noticed the trees were too close to the eventual track location and needed cut back. The plans would show flats if they were going to be any. If that was the plan, they probably wouldn't have the station where its at blocking off expansion areas.

This is what I think too. After seeing it in person, they aren't widening it by THAT much so far. Maybe 5-10 feet wider down the bulk of the length. I honestly don't think we would have noticed if it weren't for the actual trees laying in the clearing

Maybe they figured out the logistics of construction and concluded that they need this area as a path for equipment.

No you don’t, but the likelihood of that being the case is very near zero, mostly because these are the plans that were filed with the city, not just a random find on an online forum. Messing with enthusiasts and guests is one thing. Doing so by sending fake plans to a government building... doesn’t sound like fun on KIs behalf if they did this imo

 Don’t they already have a Drop Tower ride in Mach Tower? It could be a Windswker type ride or perhaps a Slingshot upcharge ride. It could also be a really tall building for an indoor ride, who knows?

As long as everyone was safe I think it would be kinda cool to be on a valleyed coaster. That doesn't happen often...unique credit??

I’d think so, good thing sensors are in place to make sure 2 trains will never be on the track at the same time. I heard it poured rain on them too

Hopefully this doesn’t happen to our giga, GateKeeper got stuck. Due to possible high winds

Anybody ever got stuck at top of a lift hill? Our train once stopped at the top of Magnum XL-200 and we sat there for what seemed like 5 minutes. Gotta say I was getting nervous at the prospect of walking down the lift hill on those little steps. I also didn't know about anti-rollback features at the time. Kind of scary. lol

I got stuck on MF at CP for 45 minutes and it started to rain, we each got 4 exit passes
