Griffon Coaster (BGW)


My favorite coaster at Busch Gardens Williamsburg is the Griffon. I have ridden it over 10,000 times in 10 years. After riding 701 times in 2009, some of my coworkers have said it's not possible to ride Griffon a 1,000 times in a year. They were wrong!!! On August 27, 2010, I rode my 1000th ride of the 2010 season and every season since (2011-2018) I have ridden at least 1000 times per season.
