Saying Goodbye to the Big Bad Wolf One More Time

One of our readers, a budding young videographer named Rob Warren, recently decided to combine his love of roller coasters with his love of filmmaking and produce something that all of us can treasure. Upon hearing that the Big Bad Wolf was to be retired from Busch Gardens Williamsburg in September 2009, his passion for the industry drove him--literally--to make the long trek from Illinois to Virginia to experience this legendary coaster for himself before it vanished into the annals of history. During the course of his journey, Rob gathered photos, video footage, and interviews which would become the basis for an impressive documentary entitled "Say Goodbye to the Big Bad Wolf".

Today we're pleased to share Rob's work with you on NPN. Whether you were the Big Bad Wolf's biggest fan or never even had an opportunity to ride it, you're sure to enjoy this moving tribute to one of the world's most memorable coasters. If you prefer, you can also access the video directly through Vimeo. We sincerely thank Rob for both his abundant enthusiasm and his willingness to share this wonderful contribution to industry history!
