 Review of Corkscrew Hill @ Busch Gardens Williamsburg

This was an interesting ride. I really knew nothing about it going into it, except that it was a movie-esqe ride that I figured would include movement of some kind of another, so basically a simulator similar to Akbars Adventure Tours @ BGT. This assumption turned out to be pretty much correct. First you enter the room where you are shown the preliminary movie to get you acquainted with the story line, characters, etc. Then you enter the next room, where you stand on dots and get sprinkled with the fairy dust to turn you into little people and so be able to experience this magical adventure. The dot concept was very clever, because it lined everyone up perfectly to enter the final room, so there was minimal jostling and jockeying for position. The simulator/movie itself was fine, and the tale brought back a nice feeling of nostalgia for an animated old Irish adventure. Unfortunately, much of the movement involved the supposed riding of a horse, which left everyone in my party a little winded. I myself did not feel so much sick by the end of it, but rather as though I had just been punched in the gut. All in all, a good ride for families to ride together, with a plot that contains enough adventure to be engaging while at the same time not frightening children. I just wish there had been more of a variety of movement as opposed to riding the horse so much, since it took its toll in the end!

Im sorry you didnt like this ride, I thought it was really great. I thought it was very well themed and I really liked the story. I thought this was a hidden gem at BGW, but I dont remember having that much on the horse. BTW Akbars wasnt 3-d, but other than that you wrote a good review even though we dont fully agree

Akbars wasnt 3-D, huh? Shows you how much I remember, that was years ago. It wasnt so much that I didnt like it, but the repetitive motion had an effect on me - other than that, it was pretty good, nothing spectacular, but not a poor ride by any means.
