 Review of Escape From Pompeii @ Busch Gardens Williamsburg

Escape From Pompeii is a very cool shoo-the-chute ride. Now Escape From Pompeii looks great as the buildings exterior looked quite good. I ended up waiting about 10 minutes even though it was 100 degrees out! I dont know how Busch keeps this line moving fast, but whatever they are doing is clearly working. After climbing the lift hill, the boat entered the building and I was wowed by the effects. The fire effects were very cool and I loved the falling column that came within feet of the boat. Though the fire effects looked cool, inside that building was unbelievably hot which was certainly a negative on the day I went. Then came the just okay drop. It wasnt nearly as good as the ones on Hopkins ones as it was smaller and it just seemed slower. The final splash got me drenched (along with everyone on the boat). Also, the splash wasnt nearly as big as the one on the Hopkins version I have been on (Boston Tea Party). This is certainly a top-notch attraction that if you dont mind getting wet there is no reason to not ride this.
