Busch Gardens Williamsburg in Virginia, US, is on track to open its latest attraction, InvadR, this spring.

Developed by Great Coasters International, the park’s first wooden coaster will feature a 74ft drop, nine hills and a top speed of nearly 50mph.

“The recent weather has allowed our team to make great strides on InvadR construction, with more than 40 per cent of the track in place,” said Busch Gardens engineer, Larry Giles.

“As the lift hill is topped out, we will begin construction of the first drop: a straight dive with a great vertical curve. The track shape will use centrifugal energy to create great airtime during the drop.”
