An epic battle creates a winning attraction.
Busch Gardens Williamsburg was looking for a new experience for its guests; something that would be thrilling enough to lure experienced park goers and still draw in younger guests.
The new area is now dominated by a 25’ tall dragon-styled battering ram bursting through the stockade. An elevated walkway meanders passed the old sawmill into the woods. The station house is themed to resemble an old converted sawmill, clad in heavy, half-log siding and a shake roof. The load platform reveals where the armies clashed with Viking graffiti, weapons, and broken shields cluttering the area. Two coaster trains enter the station; one Viking, the other Villager, chasing each other through the rolling hills and back to the sea.
