I'm going to be coming to Tampa for my first time ever in October, and we're visiting BGT (per my request
) and I was just wondering if the major coasters are doable in one day and how busy it usually is around that time of the year?
Really stoked for Kumba and Montu, I just got to force my friends to be up super early or they can meet me there and I'll cab/taxi.
we just got back from Tampa (I"ve got a trip report going at the moment w/ the 1st two days posted already).
You likely won't get the afternoon storms we got in the summer, in Oct. . .but do note there are only a handful of coasters at BGT, and if Cobra's Curse is running, I suspect that Montu will be a walk on (it was for us during summer, unless CC went down, in which case the line for Montu gets slammed).
ShieKra was a walk on (and I was told it always is), and Kumba was just a short wait.
the Coasters are pretty much in 3 areas of the park: Egypt
area: Cheetah Hunt, Cobra's Curse, and Montu are near each other.
then take skybuckets to Stanleyville
for: ShieKra, and hit Kumba as walking to. Pantopia
for Scorpion and Sand Serpent.
Don't skip Falcon's Fury either. .it's something you'll talk about doing for years after.
judging by what we experienced?. . Cheetah Hunt, Cobra's Curse, and Sand Serpent (the wild mouse) are the ones that will NEVER be short waits.
