Busch Gardens Tampa Bay (BGT Discussion Thread)

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

Recommended Posts

I too am very excited to get a glimpse of the Intamin track. I last went down to Orlando/FLA in 2007; with all the new credits and attractions it looks like a nice long stay down there this coming season is in order.

 

 

Thanks to the admin for putting up the picture, I kept trying to link directly from twitpic which wasn't working.

Its nice to see that Busch finally gave in after all those years of not being able to trust Intamin. I think its about time they decided to do something fresh. Im curious to see if BGE follows suit.

 

Yeah, it's nice to see companies trusting Intamin again, SF seems to be doing so too and I think it's great

This is great to see. They make Tophats out of box track right? I am hoping for a Maverick start and a Storm Runner finish. Go ahead and throw in a little Mega Liteish type stuff too please.

 

 

To be honest, the first thing that popped into my head when seeing that track was a Top hat.

I know its probably too early still, but has anyone heard anything about a possible/rough opening date?? because it looks like I will be going to Florida next year(woohoo,cant wait) but when I discussed it with my mum tonight, it looks like we might be going end of April into Early May, the rough dates we have picked out at the moment are 28th April to 7th or 8th May(so I know I might be cutting the opening day really fine) I tryed to see if we could go a little later in the year but my mum finds it difficult to get holidays booked in Late May/June due to the nature of her work and we wouldnt really want to go in July/August as its usually way too hot, and too busy at the parks(I know what its like before in the past on those months, never again)

Oh well, will just have to keep my fingers crossed I guess. At least I will still have plenty of new stuff to look forward too anyway, Manta at SeaWorld,aquatica, Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit at universal, and Harry Potter land I suppose,Bring it on

^^ Most US parks will target "Memorial Day Weekend" for the official opening of new attractions and sometimes the couple of weeks before then for "soft opening" or technical rehersal. If you are only here until May 8th, there's probably a good chance you'll just miss it.

Sweet Tweet! For some odd nerdy reason, I would love to take a plant tour of the track manufacturing process. From raw form, to waterjet/laser cutting, weldings, finshing/painting, and finally, riding it (when it's put together of course)

 

Wasn't there a show on nat geo that featured footage from the B&M plant in Ohio? I agree that it would be neat if they'd show more of the actual manufacturing process in future documentaries,not just the construction footage.

That link just goes to a GoDaddy hosting site. I guess they're having problems? Or is this a me-specific thing?

 

It took me to GoDaddy as well when I clicked on their link from Facebook but when I type it into the search bar and made sure I included the "www." part, it seems to work. A lot of people seemed to be having the same problems based on their comments on Facebook.
