Busch Gardens Willamsburg announced yesterday that their fan-favorite dark ride, Curse of DarKastle, has closed after operating for 13 years.
The Virginia theme park made the announcement on their Facebook page, accompanied by a video of a “final” ride-through. Busch Gardens said that the Curse of DarKastle ride building would soon be transferred into a special events space later this year, to be used for Howl-O-Scream, Christmas Town and other seasonal events.
Busch Gardens also announced a poll to rename the new event space, and gave three choices for guests to choose from: Gartensburg Castle, NewKastle, or Oktoberfest Palaste.
The poll for the new building’s name ends on Jan. 26 at noon, and guests can vote on their Facebook page.
