Williamsburg, VA — Construction workers installed the tallest piece of Griffon at Busch Gardens Europe in Williamsburg, Virginia. Track pieces number eight and nine (out of 91) of the roller coaster sit about 200 feet above the ground. It took two cranes to lift the 74-thousand pound piece into place and a pair of construction workers to tighten the bolts. Griffon is scheduled to open at Busch Gardens late spring 2007.
