Busch Gardens Tampa Bay (BGT Discussion Thread)

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

Recommended Posts

 

So, can we stop calling this "RMC Gwazi"? At this rate there won't be much of Gwazi left over when the new coaster finally opens.

 

I know this isn’t what you meant, but remembering the three names that were trademarked for Tigris (Tigris, Uproar, Twisted Tiger), I’d make a safe bet on RMC Gwazi’s actual name being Uproar. Twisted Tiger is the more logical choice (hence Twisted Cyclone, Twisted Timbers, Twisted Colossus), but that sounds a bit too similar to Tigris. If the 212’ lift hill with the 91° drop rumors from First Drop are true, Uproar would make lots of sense given that the coaster would be the tallest in Florida.

I think that Tigris is supposed to be named after the Tigris River... but it is confusing that in the logo there's a picture of a tiger with a paw.

 

Maybe it will be a play on words?

 

But it will still be a tongue twisted if one is called Tigris and the other is Twisted Tigers.

The Tigris River is a major river in Africa, and would work well with the placement of the coaster, considering that the Tiger stuff is on the other end of the park. If you Google or Wikipedia the name, it looks like everything is about it being a river, and it doesn't necessarily refer to "tiger." The name is Sumarian, and translates directly to "running water" -- not necessarily anything to do with a tiger.

Tigris is the shortened scientific name for tiger (Panthera Tigris). The ride is located near Jungala, a SE Asian themed Jungle area with tigers. It has nothing to do with a river in the Middle East (Turkey and Iraq specifically...not in Africa).

I'm 99 percent confident it will be possible to get 2-4 rides on Tigris in the first 45 minutes of the park's opening on basically any day other than opening day. It's REALLY far from the park entrance, people are not going to be rushing back there and you won't see the ride from the parking lot or entrance tram.

 

However, since that's a popular area of the park already with Shiekra, the Flume, Train, BBQ and a theatre, I also think the ride will have regular 1 hour waits for most of the day while it's new. First ride of the day or bust, basically.

This is factually wrong. Why wouldn't you look this up before you posted?

 

Chill dude, no need to be like that. But you're right, I did make an error, and I'll give it up to you for that. My bad. I'll admit when I'm wrong.

Yeah man, I'ma be like what continent rivers are on. That's my hill to die on.

Hey all - headed to the park tomorrow. Should I get any of the Quick Queue? I’m headed with my grandpa who refuses to leave the condo before 10am (so won’t get in till 11/1115). Wanted to be there at open, but oh well. Just wondering what lines and such I should expect. Thanks!

The only wait I can think will be of any length is Cheetah Hunt and Cobra's Curse, and even then they'll never reach half an hour. The B&Ms are always a walk-on on weekdays. Have fun!

And Kumba is down for refurb until 3/2 so keep that in mind also.

Oh dang, thanks for the heads up. No offense to the park but if that's closed that's a no go.

 

Well works out anyway, Id not go without those 2 rides. Not sure I'llmake it this year but if not 2020 is the biggie anyway

Was at the park all day. Cheetah Hunt was a posted 5 min wait. Crazy good time to go, despite Kumba being closed. Beautiful day and fun all around; walked on everything and stayed on for a couple laps here and there on some rides.

 

Being on Falcon, you can get a great vantage point on the RMC work. They're really getting after it there in the Gwazi area! Cannot WAIT till that is done. Once that RMC is in place there, do they take the title for best coaster lineup (not CP)?

I mean... there are tangible records that can be broken with roller coasters, but is there really a definition for "best?" Isn't "best" all about your preferences? There are a lot of other parks that are in the same coaster lineup ballpark as BGT.
