What a ridiculous announcement. BGT is my favorite park and we had an amazing time during our visit earlier this summer. Adding both of those coasters for sure means a return visit within a couple years for us. Amazing stuff.
I have always felt that Busch Gardens Tampa has one of the best "quality over quantity" coaster line ups in the US if not even the world. There is not a single bad coaster in the mix, and in fact, when they removed Gwazi, even replaced with nothing, it actually IMPROVED the overall quality of their rides.
Both of these two rides will be fantastic and when I look at what they will have available....
I still can't believe this is actually happening. I always wanted to truly believe Gwazi was going to be RMC'd but I never wanted to fully get my hopes up so I tried to downplay it by expecting it to be demolished. Now that it's all but officially confirmed I cannot WAIT to get back to this park for it. I freakin' love BGT so much.
Wow, I love the balance of this lineup, where you can go on almost anything and be guaranteed to have at least a really fun ride. I like this kind of mix a lot better than some parks that have 10+ coasters, but in reality there are only two or three rides you actually look forward to. The Sky Rocket II models are selling like hotcakes, and I like the looks of Tigris a lot. Add in the Gwazi tease, which I frankly didn't think had much of a pulse at this point, and this is a great announcement!
Cool announcement! You can't go wrong with an SR2! I'd assume they're planning some decent theming on this, too. Also, does this Gwazi situation mean that Unearthed can't happen anymore for Howl-o-Scream?
