It finally warmed up and it was a beautiful day so I took a quick drive to Tampa after work this afternoon to check the progress and get a few more photos. Not much new from the photos posted of the Figure 8 element, and really not much else new to show but here's what I could get. Enjoy.

The drop/hill heading into/out of the figure 8 looks extremely steep! Exciting indeed...!!!

This figure-8 element is a work of sculptural art. Seriously, if I saw this in a museum, I wouldn't be surprised. I'm awed.

And the award for the longest manoeuvre to turn right goes to...

I don't understand this element at all. Personally I would much rather see a tophat go in there twisting to the right.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Anyone work at BGT?

Postby CoasterEricHP » Fri Dec 17, 2010 7:28 pm

Hey guys. I was wondering if any of you who work or have worked at Busch Gardens Tampa know if they ever hire for attractions on their webpage or if it's better to go drop off an application there.

I moved back to Florida in August (Lakeland) after my fiancee got a teaching job down here and I was back working at Universal as an attraction lead for a little bit. However, I was putting 100 miles on my car a day and making very little so I ended up leaving and I'm a manager at a store in Lakeland now. I really miss the theme park environment and would love a part time job there a couple days a week.

We don't know too many people here so with my fiancee's job taking up most of her life I'm very BORED so a second job would be awesome. So if any of you know anything about getting a job there let me know. I've been watching their job page for 4 months and they never seem to be hiring for the low level button pushing jobs on that webpage. Universal on the other hand is ALWAYS hiring for something.. so either people NEVER leave BGT or they hire for attractions in some other way.

Any advice? Thanks!
