Opening Day is almost here

March 22, 2010

Can you believe that we open to the public this weekend? We have some new and exciting ventures for this season, but before I delve into that, I want to share with you what we’ve done over the past few weeks to prepare for the season.

Our team members have been attend park orientation, and are now getting their on-the-job training. The roar of roller coasters, the whistle of the train, the mixing of new recipes and restocking of shelves in our gift shops is about to begin.

The maintenance team is busy preparing buildings, rides and pathways to get them suitable for team members and guests alike, while the park leadership team prepares training sessions for Team Members.

It’s an exciting time of year as we prepare the park for our guests. Our goal is to make Busch Gardens even better this year than it was the year before. What made it special for you? Let me know with your comments.

What does 2010 bring that will be different than previous seasons? How about Ramp Jam (a half-pipe in the Festhaus Park area), “Europe in the Air” (new simulator ride), “Celtic Fyre” (a new Irish dance show), IllumiNights (a new night-time spectacular, a must see), the new atmosphere and animals at Highland Stables and other events that guests of all ages will enjoy. More to come on these exciting adventures … Until then, we’ll keep busy preparing the park for this weekend.

    I miss pass member preview :\ cause me, my dad and my sister didn’t have enough time to make it, but were looking forward to seeing you this Saturday 🙂 I can’t wait to ride all of my coasters…Loch Ness Monster, Alpengeist, Apollo’s Chariot and Griffon.

    Sadly, what truly made the park memorable for us last year is now gone. My precious 5 year old daughter fell head over heels for The Big Bad Wolf and we came to say goodbye on its last weekend of operation. She is turning into quite the adrenaline junkie- just like her parents- and we are sad that she may not be big enough for Loch Ness this year. We will miss her first real roller coaster so much but we are looking forward to enjoying our other favorites and we are praying for 48″ of height for our Katy girl!
