The longstanding and renowned Loch Ness roller coaster will celebrate 35 years of operation at Busch Gardens Williamsburg tomorrow, June 6.

Head out to Busch Gardens Williamsburg on the 6th or any days surrounding to commemorate the 35 years the Loch Ness Monster has had with the park.

On Thursday, June 6, guests are encouraged to visit the Scotland section of the park at 10 a.m. for their chance to be one of 135 lucky ones to receive a commemorative Loch Ness Monster t-shirt and to be featured in the historic Loch Ness Monster 35th anniversary photo.

The anniversary party will continue throughout the day at Busch Gardens Williamsburg as Nessie riders will be able to buy a Loch Ness Monster ride photo for the discounted price of $5.35. The Loch Ness Monster souvenir drink cup will also be available for just $7.99, with 99 cent refills available all season long.

Opened in 1978 as the world's tallest coaster, the Loch Ness Monster was a ride way ahead of its time boasting two interlocking loops as well as 3,240 feet of drops, spins, and turns which reach speeds of up to 60 mph.
