Busch Gardens Williamsburg Already Teasing 2017 Ride Project

Never too early to start to tease a new ride!  That seems to be the thought of the marketing team at Busch Gardens Williamsburg, and I'd be happy to cheer them on.

The park has released a new video on YouTube titled "Interrogation" that features the park's Vice President of Marketing, Dan Dipiazzo, doing some snooping around the theme park's Engineering department.  Naturally he sneaked in a camera to show what happened...

As the video shows Mr. Dipiazzo was met with quite a bit of resistance when he tried to take a look at the plans that were being reviewed.

As a park teaser meant for fun, not too much was given away but if you listen closely a couple interesting phrases can be heard.  For one I believe you can hear the park's Vice President of Engineering, Larry Giles, be asked "where's the cliff clearing," to which he points "where the drop" would be.

Busch Gardens Williamsburg has a lot of steep hills that a ride could interact with, and the first thing I think of when I hear "drop" is a coaster, that's for sure.  For now we won't speculate much more, but this is certainly sounding promising.

The park has a new page up for what I hope will be future videos and clues, so keep an eye on it!
