It does seem strange having two rehabs close together but maybe they wanted it back and up for the busy Christmas season before finishing the rehab?


I couldn't agree more, they already ruined Kraken with the VR, so I'd hate to see the same thing happen with Kumba. When we visited in August, Kumba/Sheikra/Montu were walk-ons all day and it was glorious!

To be honest, Bill...I don't believe that I have been on Stanley Falls before. I know, I know...for shame! :lol:

I'll likely remedy that this trip though as I do enjoy a good flume. Given that parks are slowly starting to remove them, this is a good time to make it happen.

In terms of wetness, we rode Popeye and Dudley st IoA one year when it was in the 60's, so I'm not afraid to brave it! ;)

I can concur Stanley Falls is worth a ride, we enjoyed it and rated it highly as far as flumes go. You'll get wet, but you won't get drenched.

I have only been to BGT once. That was back in 2003. Judging from Google maps satellite view, nothing was ever added to the land that Python used to occupy?

Part of the Treetop Trails and Orangutan exhibit in Jungala now occupy the land where Python was. The clearing to the north of there is an animal enclosure that can be seen from the train.
