Yeah, my only time to go is when it's packed. And it's a great way to hit up every ride and still have time to enjoy other aspects of the park. I love Fast Pass/Flash Pass and I'm sure I will love this. Heck, I don't know how I could enjoy going to some parks with systems like these. Now how much longer until all major parks have a system like this? I hope it's sooner than later.

What is this, Joisey?

While I think it is a really good move for Busch to finally get system like this, I think it is a drawback that you might not get to pick your row on some rides. That bugs me about how some of the rides at Six Flags are set up, but then again I'm obviously a coaster enthusiast and am more picky about where I sit than your average park guest.

Then again, I've visited BGA multiple times, so I'm not a first time visitor who really wants to get in every single attraction on a crowded day. This could be a big advantage for visitors like that.

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

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.
