Busch Gardens Tampa Bay (BGT Discussion Thread)

P. 372: Serengeti Flyer swing ride announced!

Recommended Posts

^^^The SeaWorld Parks & Resorts parks almost always (I'm 98% positive they do every time, but I could be forgetting an instance in which they didn't) soft open their rides before the grand opening. It presents an opportunity for the parks to iron out the operational kinks, test out evacuation procedures and allows the team members to become comfortable with the operation so when the ride is expected to operate for every day of the year without pause, they can deliver. The best part (from an operational standpoint) of a soft opening is that the park can open and close the ride as they see fit without truly negative repercussions. Guest expectations once the ride is officially open are very different than they are when the ride is still in technical rehearsals.

^ Actually, I have the feeling that as a result of ALL the coasters opening this year, around the world,

there will be a SLEEPERS' HIT LIST of 2016, which might be a first in a long, long time.

They didn't soft open Cheetah Hunt to the public and that opening was a disaster.

 

Also, Cobra's Curse ride vehicles have started to arrive! (From their Twitter account)

Can't believe Mack is still not using steering bogies on this one!

 

Also is it just me or this turn looks like a wave turn that gives sideway airtime?

Love that last picture! The whole area is going to look fantastic once it's done. The views from the paths around the ride should be great!

 

They didn't soft open Antarctica either. It wasn't cleared for human riders until days before it opened and had only 1/3 of its vehicles in an operable condition.

 

Yeah but those things are the least of the issues that ride has!

 

LOL so true!!!

Imaging the feeling of sideways airtime alone is awesome!

Except.... the cars will be spinning at that point, so not sure how much sideways airtime there will be.

^Busch Gardens Tampa Bay has animals.

 

Still not as true as the US needing more Mack coasters!

 

While I do agree with you, I would still consider that statement as an opinion. In which case, a cunning linguist would argue that there are a plethora of truer statement that exist in the universe.

Well, there goes the buzzkill for sideways airtime.

But what about good ole Colonel Angus?

 

 

Hey....page 666!

I myself never cared much for Colonel Angus - he just rubs me the wrong way. I'm not sure why...I can't put my finger on it.
