InvadR is a GCI wooden roller coaster located at Busch Gardens Williamsburg in Williamsburg, Virginia, USA. It was announced by the park at a pass holder preview event on March 19, 2016. On April 4, the name of the attraction was revealed to be InvadR. In March 2017, the ride began testing and the opening date was announced as April 7, 2017.

Design[edit | edit source]

InvadR is a wooden coaster from Great Coasters International. It has a 74 foot tall first drop, reaches 48 mph and features nine airtime hills.

Trains[edit | edit source]

InvadR uses the former trains of Gwazi at Busch Gardens Tampa. This was confirmed by the park in May when the trains arrived at the park. The trains were refurbished and rethemed before their placement on InvadR.

The front cars from both trains were on display at GCI's IAAPA booth in 2016.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

The name InvadR is derived from Norse mythology. This is the reason for the capital R at the end.
