To commemorate the opening of DarKoaster, Busch Gardens collaborated with The Virginia Beer Company to develop the DarKoaster Black Lager, a limited-release beer. This all-new brew is a traditional German-style Schwarzbier with hints of chocolate and coffee notes. Featured at Busch Gardens Williamsburg, this limited-edition pour is available on draft and in commemorative cans to visitors (21+) at BarKastle and the Brauhaus Craft Bier Room!
Must be 21 years of age to purchase or consume alcoholic beverages. Proof of age with valid ID required.
DarKoaster™ is North America’s first all-indoor straddle coaster located at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. It is a thrilling indoor roller coaster experience that takes riders through a darkened, immersive environment filled with special effects, twists, and turns while riding a snowmobile.
A straddle coaster is a type of roller coaster design with a unique seating arrangement. Unlike traditional roller coasters, where riders sit inside the train's cars, a straddle coaster allows riders to straddle the seat. Straddle coasters often incorporate drops, inversions, and tight turns to maximize the adrenaline rush for riders.
The minimum height requirement is 48 inches tall, but no taller than 6’5’’ to ride DarKoaster™.
