Busch Gardens Ride To Fly Guests Over Europe Landmarks

Williamsburg, VABusch Gardens Williamsburg will celebrate its 35th anniversary this season with the addition of a brand-new simulator ride.

Located in the park's Ireland section, "Europe in the Air", will fly guests across gorgeous terrain and past Europe's most beloved landmarks, including Stonehenge, Castle in Germany and the Coliseum in Rome.

Filmmakers hired by Busch Gardens flew in helicopters over the actual sites to shoot the footage that will be shown.

Riders will sit on a moving platform before a giant screen that will show video filmed in a format that is seven times more defined than your typical high-definition television broadcast. With amazingly sharp video quality and incredible surround sound, this high-tech simulator ride will put park guests in the midst of all the action.

Europe in the Air will replace the now retired Corkscrew Hill attraction.

Busch Gardens Williamsburg and the new ride open for the season on March 26, 2010. For more information, visit
