BUSCH GARDENS TO GET WOODEN COASTER

Busch Gardens Williamsburg announced that they will be getting a wooden coaster - finally! - in 2017.  This coaster, to be manufactured by Great Coasters International, will be Viking-themed.  Riders (designated fur trappers) will engage in an imaginary battle against invading Vikings.  The coaster will feature a 74-foot drop and 9 airtime hills.  The reason the park is announcing it so early is that they're giving enthusiasts - and anyone else who might be interested - an opportunity to vote on a name for this coaster: http://bit.ly/1UjthUa  Photo courtesy of Busch Gardens Williamsburg.
