Busch Gardens Tampa Bay (BGT Discussion Thread)

P. 372: Serengeti Flyer swing ride announced!

Recommended Posts

These are small shows in the 1,200 seat Stanleyville Theater. It's not like these are supposed to be huge shows with mass appeal in Gwazi Park.

 

They're still terrible, also they're target audience is a bit outside of the demographic, which may actually be the point.

Obviously it's nothing I would get excited about but they brought a lot of them back from last year so clearly it's successful for them.

 

Heh. You never know. I almost got arrested for drunkenly heckling Peter Noone a while back when Herman's Hermits played Ocean Grove. Highlight of that weekend.

Jesus, he looks like a I am too stupid to spell Steel Vengeance so I'll just write SteVe and pretend I'm being cool Bannon / Gary Busey love child.

 

... you know what, I'll just let the word filter do it's thing.

 

Omg.

 

The word filter is PERFECT in this instance.

Well, we are CONFIRMED. Found on the City of Tampa building permits website was this permit - BDE-19-0439598

 

Filed on behalf of SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment by general contractor "Rocky Mountain Construction"

 

Any normal person would've been convinced after the park explicitly teased it, but this is proof for the the weirdos who were convinced that BGT was going to give GCI a third try at the ride...

I'm excited to see what they actually do with this thing. Will it still be two separate tracked racing/dueling coasters? converted into a single track with a single station like Colossus? Chopped up into one single long track with some of the structure removed? No idea but should be fun to see where this thing goes.

 

Also, will this be RMC's highest profile project to date? I guess Steel Vengeance was a pretty big deal in the coaster community, WIldfire looks amazing but is at a park that's a little off the beaten path. Busch Gardens is a year round park in the massively "visible" central Florida theme park market, probably the highest attended park to get an RMC to date. Feels like this could be a massive project for both the park and RMC.

One could argue that Rocky Mountain's highest-profile project was New Texas Giant, which immediately put them as a new company on the map.

Yeah, it has the potential to be. Steel Vengeance had the biggest fair in the coaster community... probably since Millennium Force, but CP isn't really much of a blip on the radar for the average person run of the mill person in America who isn't an enthusiast. But most people have been to Disney World at some point, and everybody has obviously heard of Disney World. When the millions of non-coaster people visit Disney, they'll hear about what's going on in Tampa and be intrigued. Get ready for some long lines guys.

Planning on heading to the park sometime this week. Will the line skipper pass be necessary if I want to do all the major rides?

 

Yes. This week is the busiest time of the year for all Florida Theme Parks.

Looking at the crowd calendars it does look like attendance drops off a cliff after New Years for the Florida parks though.
