Looks like something is developing in Tampa.

So, what you're saying is God has answered my prayers. Correct? Okay, just checking. :b :b :b

Where did you read it? Was the source reputable?

I recently heard that I may have won $1 million. :lol:

I can take a look next month. If there's any credibility to this now, then by then, we could see even more. And I'll be sure to take picture so that we aren't just "reading" about more "sightings". :lmao:

By then we will know wether or not this rumor is true, but who the hell doesn't like pictures??

Could you post a link to where you read it?

EDIT: I think I found the link I think the track pieces they see are similar to Mean Streak in that it's deconstructed old track, not new RMC track.

If construction is truly taking place and they're being careful enough to remove track sections, I think it's fair to say they aren't doing full demo and they found some use for the structure! ;)

^^ I think we all know right now whether this is true, but no one in their right mind should ever turn down Busch Gardens Tampa photos. Please share!

Chickenbowl, that's the same source. Maybe I misunderstood the translation regarding new track.

It is also important to note that the ride's wood has been carefully pulled from portions of the structure to be reused across the Florida parks. The Sea Rescue gift shop at the entrance of SeaWorld Orlando utilizes repurposed wood from Gwazi. It is also possible that portions of the track came from the station, which was gutted to allow for the park to mockup the Cobra's Curse moving walkway system before installing it at the new coaster.
