Join us today for live updates from Busch Gardens Media Day as we experience the first rides of their brand new wooden coaster InvadR!
Getting ready for the Ribbon Cutting at #InvadR Grand Opening! Video will be posted to YouTube of the ceremony shortly!
Fun fact from Suzy Cheely: During construction they found old wood underground from an old ball pit play area. #InvadR
#InvadR is very much like White Lightning, but with a twister terrain aspect. More directional changes. Just as much airtime and speed.
InvadR has some great speed. Its size is very deceptive. It is quick, agile, and filled with airtime and directional changes.
The crew with Cindy from @BuschGardensVA and @DevinOlsonMedia here today! Great job by all!
We have a winner folks! #InvadR is a great ride!
A very nicely decorated station! #InvadR
The blue dragon train is off! The bear train represents the Villagers, the dragon represents the Vikings.
The yellow bear train on its way! #InvadR
We will be riding for Reverse POV shortly! #InvadR
Wonderful looking ride area!
We're being escorted to the ride now! #InvadR
There are roughly 96,000 bolted connections on #InvadR and over 10,000 pounds of nails used.
A little chilly and breezy this morning. #InvadR ride times are slightly delayed. We'll keep you posted as we get closer to riding.
#InvadR has two tunnels over the course of the ride. It has a 46-inch height requirement, shorter than most other GCI coasters.
#InvadR has a 74-foot drop to kick things off at 48MPH. 9 airtime hills will greet us throughout the ride!
Having some breakfast prior to the online working media entering the ride area!
Lots of banners around the park! Very beautiful this morning!
We're on our way back to the ride! #InvadR
