WILLIAMSBURG, Va. — The James City County Board of Supervisors is expected to vote on a height waiver request for a new attraction at Busch Gardens.
The theme park is hoping to get a 355-foot height waiver for a new ride. Officials delayed a vote last month, after Kingsmill residents voiced concerns over possible sight and noise issues from the park.
Busch Gardens requested the waiver for an attraction of a “lattice-type” construction, according to planning department documents.
The attraction will be “quite slender” and can be painted any color the county requests to lessen its visual impact, said Suzy Cheely, senior leader of design and engineering at Busch Gardens Williamsburg.
The board of supervisors is expected to take up a vote on Tuesday, June 11.
