Busch Gardens Tampa Bay (BGT Discussion Thread)

P. 375: Serengeti Flyer opening on February 27th, 2023!

A new house at Howl-O-Scream!


"Death Water Bayou"




Desiree Yanes came home one night and found her husband with another woman. Enraged, she ran off and disappeared inside the dark swamplands of Louisiana. There, she crafted voodoo dolls and swore then to torment them…with unspeakably sadistic tortures. The Voodoo Queen continues to hide in the swamps of the bayou and perform her twisted Voodoo rituals for others seeking revenge.

Brave souls can test their fate at the new house, Death Water Bayou, where the #6 Voodoo Queen mystically transforms lost wanderers into her minions of evil with black magic. Here, her night servants roam with a zombie-like hunger and seek to grow her collection. The darkest evils lurk in shadows. Get out before you fall victim to her spell.

Is there a very slight chance this will be open in Mid-March? While i highly doubt it will, I'd really love to give it a go and it would be such a tease to see it not ready yet.


I doubt it. Usually new rides at Busch open Memorial Day weekend. Yet again, I am pretty sure HOS will be the better of the two Halloween events this year.

Hey guys.


I'm heading to the park tomorrow. I'm planning on hitting Cheetah Hunt first as it's the only credit I don't have so far. How bad do you think the lines will be? Is the fast queue (or whatever BGT is calling it) worth it? It's only $20, but I'm not sure if my dad and I are going to get it.

If you go right to Cheetah Hunt at opening, the line will probably be 30 minutes or so.


I usually grab my All Day Dining wrist band first, then head over to CH.


I have gotten in line with a 30 minute posted wait time, got off, looked at the wait time and it was over an hour.


Check the website for the annual maintenance schedule.


Get the All Day Dining Deal.


This is what I suggest to anyone visiting BGT for the first time:

Redeem All Day Dining wristband, then head to Cheetah Hunt. Afterwards, hit Montu in the front. Then take a short cut through Edge Of Africa, and head up to Congo. After Kumba, head over to SheiKra. After about 2pm go BACK to Montu, and get the last row left hand side!

I stopped by Busch Gardens Tampa Sunday and snapped a couple of construction pictures...literally a couple. I had to stand on a bench and extend my arm to get a snap shot over the wall. I'll periodically go by for pics updates. Enjoy these two.

So Screamscape reported that 2 of the big restaurants will be closed the rest of the summer. I'm wondering how the next few years will go with attraction closures. I'm hoping that both the Busch parks decide how to keep costs down AND keep their rides/attractions open before next year starts.

Closing the Crown Colony would be an absolute shame! That has to be my absolute favorite place in that entire park, and it had some of the best theme park food and ambiance!


If this is true I am VERY saddened.



Man, What is going on with SeaWorld Parks lately? You'd think the parks were ran by a company who doesn't even know how to operate parks.
