The Food and Wine Festival is returning with two new kiosks, Local Virginia and Hawai’i. We reported on Pass Member Appreciation day last year that there would be a new show in the Royal Palace Theatre, that show is All For One. No, not the 90’s R&B group, but a action packed Three Musketeers show. All For One opens July 1st.
Larry Giles, VP of Engineering, came on stage to announce Project 2017. He let us know that it will be BGW’s first wooden roller coaster, being built by Great Coasters, hitting speeds of 48 mph, a drop of 74 ft and have 9 airtime hills. Oh, and it’s viking themed…yes, VIKINGS. We are really stoked about this. Before we get a history lesson and there are arguments about the timeline of vikings landing in North America, remember, BGW is supposed to be fun. We believe this will be an awesome addition to New France. The main theme is vikings invading Trappers Village. Talking with Larry Giles afterword he confirmed it will be a hybrid wooden coaster. (Full announcement video below)
VP of Marketing, Dan Dipiazzo told us this will be the first crowd sourced roller coaster in the world, allowing park guests to vote for the name, along with other elements of the ride, including theming. We cannot wait!
All in all, 2016 is shaping up to be a historic year, going in to 2017! Keep up right here on BG Cabana.
Keep it positive. Keep it fun. Be excellent to each other!
