Busch Gardens Williamsburg have requested a height waiver for a new roller coaster... A very big rollercoaster...

The documents filed suggest the highest point of the attraction will surpass Kings Doninion's I305 making it Busch Gardens first giga coaster!

This will be decided on next week.

This would presumably be for 2019? Wow, that's some serious coaster investment going into that park.

I wonder which manufacturer would be used. Given that there's an Intamin Giga just down the road, could be be seeing another B&M Giga? Or will another manufacturer throw their hat into the giga coaster ring? Very exciting times ahead if this is granted.

Oh, and we'll have one in Tampa as well please! :P

Manufacturers that SeaWorld work with that could produce a giga coaster:

B&M
Intamin
Mack
Premier rides (unlikely)

Tampa is expected to get one as their next coaster, although this is yet to be confirmed obviously :)

The attraction has been approved! Currently the attraction is under the name "Madrid" and is anticipated to be a Giga coaster or a Sky Jump drop tower (Falcon's Fury)!
