Busch Gardens Tampa Bay (BGT Discussion Thread)

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

Recommended Posts

I never understood how people could decide what is good and bad for the animals on an ethical level. How do people know what the snakes like and don't like? Conditions don't even correlate with happiness all of the time, even for humans, the most advanced species of animals that we can understand the most about. Look at Kanye West. Dude has everything and is still mad all of the time. I know kids who grew up with nothing and are way happier. Maybe the little snake is grateful that he/she doesn't have to search for food all of the time now. Maybe he/she is grateful that the world isn't such a big place anymore. How people could understand what is good and bad for the animals is beyond me.

Oh Boy, here we go again. Sea World had "blackfish" and now some people are attacking BGT as the possible new "Blacksnake" ? A front page article in the Tampa Bay Times has Herpatologists /activists / animal rights groups ,claiming that " putting vipers and pythons in front of thousands of tourists next to a rumbling roller coaster could be torture for these animals"

A rather lengthy read. Here's the link,

The rumblings of the Beast at Kings island doesn't bother the wild deer that feed in the middle of the helix often. I can't imagine the snakes will be bothered by a steel coaster.

How about we put the activists in with the pythons and vipers to keep them company? That way they won't be so traumatized. It's a win-win for all.

 

 

People take offense to everything these days. As if they know what the snakes are thinking, human arrogance at its finest.

^Kanye is the GOAT and should always be brought up in discussion if the opportunity presents itself.

 

Speaking of GOATs, I had a recent discussion with some of the goats taking residence next to MF at CP, they said they love the hospitality.

More of an ass than a goat.

So good to see Crown Colony is reopening. We have gone for the Xmas day buffet for the past 2 years and loved it. The food was great, more than ample, and reasonably priced ($14.99) Plus the addition of a bottle of wine and a view, perfection. Plus what could be better than dinner, walk down the steps and a few paces to Cheetah Hunt or Montu ? (and now Cobra's Curse)

Also glad to hear the Crown is open again...while we have never eaten there, the bar and outdoor patio are a perfect setting for a cocktail or an ice cold beer or two!

 

^^ That's a rather odd question, but I don't recall seeing any mosquito's at the park. Are you worried about Zika or something?

^ I thought it a rather odd question too, as I was thinking of the food at the park. I've heard of chocolate covered ants, fried crickets, but never mosquitoes. Hmm, maybe a new food concept I wasn't aware of at BGT, The Zika Grille?

But to be serious, I've never noticed any problems the the little nasty biters in the park In all the years I've been going.

They're only bad when you're there after dark in summer when it's dead, which pretty much never happens. There's so many people at the park during summer that the mosquitoes aren't really noticeable. You may get one or two bites, but you won't be swarmed.

How are the mosquitoes at the park?

Actually, I got bitten quite a lot when I was there last summer. Never near the coasters, the two worst areas I noticed was the viewing area by the gorillas and chimps and Curiosity Caverns and occasionally Jambo Junction. However, we were in those areas a lot in the morning so it could be because of that. The chimps area was so bad sometimes I had to run in place to keep them from biting me. Bug spray should help though. Maybe they just like the shadier areas.
