    I noticed there wasn't a topic for this park and BGWFans have released images of Verbolten's front and rear lights now working, so I thought I'd start a topic with them:

    Verbolten: Now with Headlights!



    I think it looks excellent. It's still no Big Bad Wolf though, mind. :/

    Ah glad to see that they have got them sorted! They probably don't add much to the on ride experience but I'm sure that they look great off ride and it is a really nice little touch.

    As most of you know, I absolutley love this park, it's stunning. There is a wonderful mix of themig, beatuty and thrills. I can't wait to go back one day and experience Verbolten!

    Still can't believe they knocked down Big Bad Wolf to build this crap.

    In an attempt to bulk-up this topic, I'll add this update here, even though this applies to both Busch Gardens Williamsburg Busch Gardens Florida! :p



    An update from BGWFans has revealed that the Busch Gardens parks will be getting nice new logos:

    Some nice subtle changes. :)

    Oh god no! I do not like that at all, well it's nice enough but it's nowhere near as good as the current logo. It just seems a bit bland in comparison. The Coaster Tree is a nice idea, but I don't know, it just doesn't seem right.

    Also this now makes all of my BGW merch out of date, this is bad!! ;)

    The font isn't much different by looks of things...

    Simplistic logos are the trend though... Not that it looks anything like a coaster tree mind...

    They look awful in my opinion haha. So cheap looking and lazy, not a fan. I don't really think there was anything wrong with their current one either tbh.

    That logo's horrible, it looks like the logo of an corporate printing solutions company or something.

    I like the coaster tree and frankly to me the "new font" looks pretty much the same as the old one.

    From Screamscape:

    Well at least one of the two Busch parks has some good news.



    I still can't forgive them for replacing Big Bad Wolf though. :I

    According to a report on BGWFans, Busch Gardens have closed their 'Europe in the Air' ride (opened in 2010) and the ride will not be reopening this season.

    Screamscape had this to say about the recent moves and cuts being made by both of the Busch Gardens parks and the SeaWorld parks:

    That is very concerning news. Sure the ride is nothing special but it is still a major attraction. I hope there aren't too many more cuts for what is a brilliant theme park.
