How you can become the face of Busch Garden’s first wooden coaster


WILLIAMSBURG. Va. – Busch Gardens is getting its first wooden coaster in Spring 2017.

The coaster is called InvadR and the public has had much say in the branding of the ride so far.

Fans had the opportunity to pick the name of the ride, pick the logo design, and now Busch Gardens is looking for the face of InvadR.

Here is what you can do to enter the contest:

Step 1: Follow @BuschGardensVA on Twitter or Instagram.

Step 2: Tweet or post a selfie on Twitter or Instagram that shows your boldest battle face using hashtags #DecidetheRide and #FaceofInvadR (profile must be public). Submissions will be accepted from October 11 – 18. (Hint: they are looking for Vikings and Villagers)

12 finalists will be selected by a team of Entertainment experts.

From there, the experts will look at the finalists again to pick the top six candidates. These six winners will become the Vikings and Villagers leading Busch Gardens into battle next spring.

• Bragging rights! Winners will receive the Face of InvadR title for all of 2017.
