Busch Gardens Tampa Jan. 4,2010

It was a great little day at one of my favorite parks by far.
Got their early in the morning and the crowds were very light. Pretty much all the rides were walk on except for Sheikra, and remained that way for the rest of my stay. Re-rides on Montu and Kumba were great, but I couldn't stay as long as I wanted and had to leave around 4:50 P.M.

My ride opinions: [and ride counts]
Gwazi Tiger: [1] Not as rough as people say, and kinda fun. 6/10
Sheikra: [1] Still a fun little ride and the drop is still great! 8.5/10
Kumba: [5] This ride has gotten smoother than it use to be and I think I can easily say it's in my top three coasters now! 10/10
Scorpion: [1] A fun little ride with those great Schwarzkopf transitions and some nice forces. 8.5/10
Montu: [4] A great smooth ride and that Batwing seriously packs some strong G's! 9/10
Pheonix: [1] An ok little flat if you can get over the pain. 5.5/10
Rhino Rally: [1] Also pretty decent, the driver seemed pretty funny and into his job 6/10
Sky Ride: [1]
Jungala: [ ] A nice little addition, Was surprisingly a fun little area. 8.5/10

Nice footage of Sheikra, definitely an amazing coaster to ride and watch! Also, when is Kumba scheduled for a paint job? It's REALLY showing it's age.

Great pictures and video! The quality was amazing! I cannot wait for your next report (wink wink)!

P.S: What kind of camera do you use?

Kumba needs another paint job :( 1:11

There has to be a way to somehow prevent that rust or whatever

dude, there's always some group from Brazil or Argentina at BGA. I went once, and no ride was more than an hour, and when we went to Kumba, there were hundreds of backpacks on the bridge, and the wait was 2.5 hours!

Great trip report and video! I'm glad to hear that Kumba is running a little smoother now. I hope my trip was just on a bad day or something. Anyways, did you ride Wild Surge? It's NOT your standard frog hopper. Ever since that thing I have been in love with Moser's spring towers.

^It is such an awesome and under-appreciated ride, I think ALL parks need to install one of these. Forget those boring Zamperla hoppers.

I know and most of them get annoying and obnoxious. Now if they were coaster enthusiasts then I would of been fine with them..but they are not and they just...well let me just stop here before I ramble.....

And yes wild surge is a pretty fun frog hopper, my stomach tickled a lot I was laughing the whole ride and then some after the ride
