Get ready for fun and excitement with Busch Gardens and Opening of InvadR April 2017!

So much fun is about to happen in April of 2017, with the opening of Busch Gardens in Williamsburg first wooden roller coaster, called InvadR! I was able to get a sneak peek, during the Hard Hat Media tour last week to see what it takes to make an amazing coaster come to life. We were able to meet with the InvadR, development team and Busch Gardens Staff to give us the up to date thrills you will come to expect in April, 2017 when InvadR opens!


For me as a parent of a child who usually in the, “in-between” stage of never getting on roller coasters, this one is “family friendly where those who are 46 inches and up can ride and enjoy the fun! I am so excited to bring that excitement to my family because we all will be riding!
