 Review of Apollos Chariot @ Busch Gardens Williamsburg

Raging Bull (SFGAm) was my first experience with this type of ride, and that ride is one of my all-time favorites. Ive ridden the Bull many times, and am quite familiar and comfortable with the thrills and joy it provides. Apollos Chariot, thus, was a similar ride for me and I knew coming in I was in for a Raging Bull-like experience.

The ride did not disappoint at Busch Gardens, and Apollos Chariot became one of my favorites along with the very similar Raging Bull. Separating the two, however, is ACs environment, which is surrounded by trees and a bit more of a scenic view. Therefore, I have to give AC the edge.

Enough of the comparison, though. Each ride is unique, and AC has some spectacular features. I especially like the small bits of airtime you can get throughout the ride. I also especially like the fast drop where you zip across the water below, as it creates a feeling of exceptional speed and quickness while providing the thrill of dashing toward the quickly approaching water.

Overall, I still cant put the ride in the "10" category, because that score is reserved for the best of the best. AC is an awesome ride, and a reliable thrill. The line moves fast (I waited about 15 minutes on opening day), and you can always bet on a fun time on Apollos Chariot.
