Busch Gardens Tampa new coaster?

Postby justint87 » Tue Jun 16, 2009 10:05 am

I couldn't find another topic about it using the search so I apologize if its posted somewhere else. Information have been coming up all over the web about it.

Of course this could just be a children coaster but you never know.

Go to the Tampa government permit website and type in project number 336758 and a permit comes up with this description:

"SITE:CONST 4 BLDGS,ROLLER COASTER,SITE DEMO"

Just read about this on Screamscape. Lance seems to think this isn't for Seasame Street, but I'm not quite sure why he thinks that.

I’ve also heard a rumor that those previously plans have been been cancelled instead, as the public wouldn’t have been fooled so much by a re-paint of the old Dragon area as a Sesame Street land, and the reaction to the entirely brand new area created at the Williamsburg page has been very positive by contrast.


To which my obvious thought would be: Okay then, they're going to put in Seasame Street as a whole new area and keep Land of the Dragons, too. Yet he leaps right to the idea of a whole new (adult) coaster, and I'm not sure why.

/Wishful thinking, perhaps?

The red track sitting at the Ohio plant?... No, that's going to Carowinds.

I will provide you with maximum pleasure.

I think that this coaster will also be a kiddie coaster for a new Sesame Street land. The park has several large coasters, family coaster, but no coasters for children. I don't think BGA will get a major new coaster until at least 2011 at the earliest, but more likely 2012.
