Going down to tampa at the end of april and I can go to BGT either on sunday may 1st or monday the 2nd. This will be my first time there and need some advice from all you experts on how to approach which day to go. On sunday the park is open 9:30-7 and monday 10-6.
Basically, is there extra 1.5 hours worth the bigger crowds I would assume come w. going during the weekend?
(also, I don't know if BGT has single rider lines, but I will be going by myself if that helps w. the advice at all)
For the earlier morning and later evening , I would go with Sunday. For one thing it wont be that busy, especially early in the day. In the afternoon take a break and eat and see a couple shows. When the late afternoon comes it will be a cool time to be in the park. Aside from the coasters, Busch Gardens is a world class zoo so dont miss the animal stuff. Lastly, consider the Quick Queue unlimited ticket, if I am in a park I will rarely get to or perhaps just go to once, I always get front line privledges, 44 bucks at most and well worth it if you got the dough. Have fun BGT is awesome.
I'd probably go with Monday, as crowds on weekdays at BGT really are next to nothing. Weekends you have many more locals out with their families for something to do on the weekend. Just make sure you try your best to be there at opening, as other have said crowds are very minimal at opening. The hours will be more than enough for you to get in multiple rides on whatever you want to ride on either day, so just go and enjoy yourself.
Also for what rides to go for first, I'd go for Scorpion and Cheetah Chase, as those rides don't have the best capacity and the lines will be longer even on non-crowded days. Sheikra, Kumba, and Montu are people eaters and are usually walk ons throughout the day. Hope that helps!
