Busch Gardens Tampa Bay (BGT Discussion Thread)

P. 358: Two new slides & more announced for Adventure Island!

Recommended Posts

Think the best way busch could plus kumba is to add an animatronic creature inside the cave, give the station a facelift and give the track a paint job. Please give the track a paint job!

 

Where in that cave is an animatronic going?

^^It got a full repaint in 2006, and a cleaning with touch-ups in 2010.

 

^Yeah, definitely don't think there's enough room in there for anything, let alone an animatronic. But even if there was, definitely wouldn't want them to put one there. Just doesn't fit the park's style and wouldn't make any sense, and would just look like a cheap gimmick.

Hi everyone!

I am so excited! I will be finally be visiting BGT a week and a half from now. I managed to tag both this and SeaWorld onto my trip to the Orlando Zumba instructor convention. I booked the free shuttle from SeaWorld (thanks for the tip about that guys), bought my tickets and unlimited quick que. Now all that's left is waiting out the clock

Since I have the unlimited pass I don't think I need to have a plan to hit all the coasters. I would like to know any tips about good places to eat while there though. Any exceptional place to have dinner and a beer?

^If you mean outside of BGT, I would suggest checking out the attached link below and if you like German food and beer, Mr. Dunderbak's isn't located too far from the park. VERY GOOD!

 

If you venture somewhere else near the park and it is good, make sure to post your recommendation into the thread!

 

If you are eating within the park, I would recommend either the Crown Colony for beer/drinks (they have a full service bar) or try out the new Dragon Fire grill. I have not been to the latter, but there is a report of it buried in this thread several pages back. It looked like they had some good stuff.

 

Zambia Smokehouse is also decent if you are into BBQ.

 

Most of all...have fun!

Yeah I recommend either Dragonfire (in Pantopia) or Smokehouse for food. Smokehouse doesn't have a lot of beer selection, but there is a bar in Dragonfire and over by Falcon's Fury there's Twisted Tails pretzels that has a good selection of beer. So I recommend staying in that area for food and drinks.

It has been raining for about 22 days straight in the Tampa area. There are flooding and evacuations popping up everywhere...especially this week! It has been a brutal summer here. It definitely solidifies the lightning capital of the world after all the storms we have been having.

 

I'm sure the construction for Cobra's Curse has definitely been delayed for some time.

I'm sure it has some, but they have mostly just taken the time they can't work outside to work on the queue house inside, so the time isn't totally lost.

Me and the girlfriend are planning on travelling to Orlando to visit the park for the first time August 18th. Do any of you locals know how long Cheetuh Hunt is usually down for in these types of cases? It'll be a bit of a disappointment if it's not running our first trip to the park.

I would I hope so, but the honest answer is right now no one knows. The park is saying its routine maintenance, but the employees say that it is technical issues that they aren't able to fix and haven't been able to for almost a week now. So I wish you the best, but no one can say for sure if it will be up, as this is not a typical shut down.

Cheetah Hunt reopened this morning so you should be good to ride unless it rains of course

This afternoon I saw it testing but without people on it. I heard it ran with people on the day the weather went crazy, but I haven't seen anyone on it all week and I'm at the park every day.
