I hate to say it, but with the opening dates getting closer and closer, HOS may take on a sort of generic Fright-Fest sort of format.Not saying I've given up hope just yet, but that's my prediction.

As for Adventure Island... well, God knows. BGT loves taking their sweet, sweet time don't they? :lol:

Hey everyone! I belive this is my first time on this thread and let me say that I love this park! I went twice and they let me bring a gopro on all the rides, so I took some videos and took screen shots of those then I made them into this

With Irma now headed straight for Tampa, how much damage will BGT get? Will there be any serious problems?

I fully expect BGT and Adventure Island to have the most downtime of all the Florida Parks. BGT is not in a storm surge area, but they will certainly lose some power and have some damage that will need to be cleaned up Tuesday and maybe longer.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I'm curious if the park will repair the damage done to the roof of Gwazi's station

Was there any damage to any of the rides or animal areas? I haven't heard yet.

^ There was damage to trees, roofs, and some other structural damage but from what I understand nothing too serious. I believe they have already reopened, but I could be wrong about that.
