Busch Gardens Williamsburg Project 2021 - 355ft Height Waiver Filed

There could be a Falcon's Fury type tower (not an exact clone)!! But a similar type maybe...with a full backstory relating to Oktoberfest. Or a Star Flyer with an Oktoberfest themed story

It's a safe bet that this is for a star flyer in my opinion. I doubt Mach Tower would be replaced this early in its lifespan, even considering that its opening was delayed a bit according to Wikipedia.

So a 215 foot star flyer?

Pretty much. There'd still be some beautiful views, as when you get to the top of Griffon's lift you can see the Atlantic Ocean, the Busch beer factory and Virginia coastline in the distance.

What's wrong with Falcon's Fury? One of my favourite ever rides.
It's not very interesting aside from the view before you tilt facing down... and the drop itself is extremely lackluster as far as a drop tower is concerned. I'll ride it but only if it has a short line, probably done it 20 times since it opened.

They won't ever beat the views one would get at Seabreeze though :p

I bet the 'lattice' reference is due to a local planning thing. Probably harks back to some TV/radio antenna installed in the 50s that they had to get through planning and that was their tactic. BGW just playing their cards right.
