Busch Gardens Tampa Bay (BGT Discussion Thread)

p. 375: Phoenix Rising family inverted coaster announced for 2024!

Recommended Posts

Okay, you the the award for best BGT Update E V E R! Awesome pictures, I almost peed myself when I saw the "This is where the train will ramp off the track", just funny and I really needed a laugh this morning. Lot's of great, well done pictures. Good thing you disclosed it was what's-her-name Jen's camera or something bad would have happened. Thanks for the update. Even more excited for this ride. Peace! KC

Awesome friggin pictures... too bad the weather was crappy (and it WAS crappy yesterday...)... and some bad luck coaster wise too... but the pictures make up for it (for us at least...)... I'm in love with both Cheetah Hunt (more than ever) and waiting ever so impatiently to ride Gwazi on Saturday... can't wait... thanks for sharing those great pics...

Praying this is open for the 23rd May when I visit from the UK, will be gutted if I can only view it days before it opens!

I haven't seen anything on opening date, but be prepared. Most parks like to open new rides around Memorial Day...which is the week after your visit...maybe you'll get to see it testing!

I agree. The comment about launching off the ramp took me so by suprise. Good job! Very funny and great photos. Thanks to Jen, too.

Nice! Very nice indeed. I should post the pics I took when I was there on Saturday. Will do that tonight from home.

 

I'm VERY excited about Cheetah Hunt. It looks like it's going to be all kinds of awesome.

 

And I'll be at the park this coming Saturday as well to check out the new trains on Gwazi. They looked really cool when I saw them testing on Saturday. I got some weird looks when I got all excited and started jumping up & down.

And that tease was well worth the wait! That was a PTR of epic proportion! You circled the hunt like hyena's would their prey! So many wonderful angles!! This ride most certainly looks like it will be awesome fun!!

 

Thank you for taking the time on that crappy day to check it out for us!

Didn't ride ShiekRa that day. There were some Brazilian tour groups & they were taking up half the queue, so decided to stay a few steps ahead and went to...

...Kumba, which was a modest 10 minute wait for the front row at the time (thought he Brazilians were getting in line when I was coming back from my spin).

ZOMG! WIDDLE HANDS! This wallaby was so little! He was maybe slightly bigger than my cats. I called him Wee Wally Wallaby.
