WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (WWBT) - Busch Gardens is getting a new roller coaster in 2023.
“DarKoaster: Escape the Storm” will be “the world’s first all-indoor staddle coaster,” the amusement park announced on Tuesday.

“As the weather strikes, riders encounter four accelerating launches on this family-friendly dark ride experience,” Busch Gardens said.
An exact opening date has not yet been announced.
