Seaworld Parks & Entertainment Additions for 2020: Five New Rollercoasters Planned

Recommended Posts

There’s still a decent chunk being saved. That was a huge structure with two circuits, and the new coaster will just be a single circuit. I think they may have found issues they weren’t expecting when they began working on it as well.

Busch Gardens Williamsburg has confirmed that the new coaster for 2020 will be 180 ft. tall.  For 2021, the park is now attempting to get approval for a 355 ft. tall attraction that is slender and has a "lattice-type" construction.  It sounds like they might be planning a Funtime StarFlyer for 2021, but this project is facing some resistance from local residents.

Since 2017, supervisors have approved other height waivers for rides proposed by Busch Gardens.

 

All were granted, allowing the amusement park to build Finnegan’s Flyer, the Project 2019 coaster formerly known as “Madrid” and now the unknown attraction.

 

The original Madrid project received a height waiver for 315 feet, but Cheely gave previously unreleased information at the meeting, stating that project as originally planned will not come to fruition.

 

Because the height waiver was already approved, another project is taking Madrid’s place. That project will be about 180 feet at its tallest, Cheely added.

 

“It’s a lot less than it would’ve been if the Madrid project would’ve gone through,” she said.

Suzy Cheely is the senior leader of design and engineering at Busch Gardens Williamsburg.

The park later added that it will be over by Wacky Taxi. Now I want a Driving School over in the handicap lot (turn the Preferred lot into Handicap and buses and then a parking structure and bridge across the street). It's an idea I had back around when the Big Bird Steps were removed. That and another water ride either behind The Count's Splash Castle or between Peek-a-Bug and Monster Mix-Up would be good.

It's good that Sesame Place is getting a new ride, they need all the rides and attractions they can get with how crowded that park is. I haven't been there since they have added any dry rides except Vapor Trail, it really changed from all playground type attractions and water slides to more of an amusement park.

They are really being aggressive with new CapEx for all the parks AND getting it open on time! 

 

The coasters they're building are all well under way in construction for spring openings. All five coasters have been topped out before the end of the year and have a large portion of the track in place.

That looks awesome, it's great how the park too arguably their worst coaster and it could potentially now become their best coaster.
