    I thought I'd start it as a separate thread, but BGW Fans report that Busch Gardens Williamsburg has filed a height waiver for a 355ft structure in the Oktoberfest area.
    Thoughts??

    Star flyer it seems like. There are not getting a new coaster right after Project 2020.

    Yeah, anything BUT a Falcons Fury clone would be better than Mach Tower...

    What's wrong with Falcon's Fury? One of my favourite ever rides.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I wish you could but Griffon would have to be like 1000 feet tall. Its the James River but beautiful none-the-less.

    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.

    When I hear slender, spire and lattice, it just makes me think of a starflyer.

    Indeed, it's actually a very fitting description of a Star Flyer (or Drop Tower).

    I was particularly meaning the bit in the tweet where they say BGW have used this term a lot. Makes me think they almost have to to get it through.
