I can say that bathrooms are open, a few if not most of the food/drink stands are open, and staff even brought out Jenga and Corn Hole for people. I do believe that it might be pretty bad to leave the parking lot though, besides that there goes the news twisting everything.

^Sorry to hear this. What amazes me is how guests can still be a$$holes to the employees and management when these types of situations are out of the park's control. SMH

^^ Gosh, I hope the little guy is OK ? :( On the bright side, another local story reports that the park did good for anyone with tickets for today, refunds and/or use of the ticket for any time up to a year. http://www.baynews9.com/fl/tampa/news/2018/05/12/half-of-busch-gardens-without-power--officials-reporting

The day ended up being pretty great, we didn’t quite get to see all the animal stuff, but regardless we got rides on everything. They also extended the hours to 10 so we got a lot of night rides which honestly made it kinda worth it.

I fly in to Tampa tomorrow for a week in Clearwater and my family has our two park passes for a day at BGT and Seaworld Orlando. Since tomorrow is a travel day for us, we have Tuesday - Friday to pick two days to do one park each. Given that the weather forecast in Florida right now potentially calls for storms each day, I have a couple questions.

How does the park treat rain i.e. do most rides open up fairly quickly after it clears out or are there certain attractions that sort of get put down for the count for awhile? Also, would anyone happy to know if Kumba's scheduled downtime was completed? I know it's been really rainy down there and was curious.

Thanks! Can't wait to visit. Looking forward to doing trip reports on both parks.

Busch Gardens has submitted their plans for the Tidal Wave plot, looks to be a Premier Rides Skyrocket II.

A Sky Rocket II is a good addition to just about any park. Personally, I'm hoping they go with the name Uproar. It feels the most fitting for a vertically-oriented coaster like a SRII.

I can't say I'm not excited about this as these things are completely awesome and will only make an amazing lineup that much better but I just wish it wasn't going to have those stupid comfort collars but we all know it will. :/
