|Escape From Pompeii is one of the best "Shoot-the-Chutes" rides out there, and it features fire and other special effects illustrating the city's destruction.|
The feeling of being held at the top of the ride's 200-foot drop is an experience that needs to be felt to be believed!
One of the things I was surprised by at Busch Gardens Williamsburg was the heavy theming inside the Festhaus restaurant, which is in part of the German section. It has a huge capacity and a large stage, but I guess such a venue makes sense given that the park was built by Anheuser-Busch. (You can still see the factory from the top of Griffon; there was a monorail for brewery tours for many years.)
Like all good classic theme parks, a multiple-stop train line circles the park and includes multiple trestles.
Thanks for reading!
