Indeed. Wonderful park for sure but it struck me as better for groups/families and not so much a purely park experience. Like I went solo for a few hours, the goal then is just to ride and there's not exactly a lot of rides (and sadly 2 were closed including Falcon's Fury :( ) and while they have good diversity of coasters its not thrill seeker skewed. This will be changing over the next 2 years, will deff be the best park in FL imo (well it already is for me, just it'll be better)

Yeah Kumba was nuts. I didn't expect much but good lord that was such a forceful intense ride, like from start of drop to the brakes. Shame B&M don't make em like that anymore. I also heard about it "showing its age" but even in back row I found it very smooth still.

Even with the RMC I don't think Id give BGT the best non CP lineup, (prozach is right its entirely personal) but it'll be up there in my book.

I mean... there are tangible records that can be broken with roller coasters, but is there really a definition for "best?" Isn't "best" all about your preferences? There are a lot of other parks that are in the same coaster lineup ballpark as BGT.



Sure, that's fair. I just meant.....they'll have a multi launch intamin, a record breaking RMC, a B&M Dive, a REALLY forceful B&M invert, arguably the best B&M coaster out there in Kumba, a mack spinner, a Sky Rocket and a Schwartzkof (spelling). To me, I can't think of a park with that sort of kick ass-ness and diversity in portfolio of coasters.

^I agree with you. I've never been to the park, but adding a solid Premier coaster and an RMC to an already incredible B&M trio and several middle ground coasters like Cheetah Hunt, Cobra's Curse, and Scorpion, along with arguably one of the best drop towers out there... dang, I gotta get down there in 2020! Time to contact my cousins in Orlando! lol

A media invite has gone out for this day teasing a big announcement. We will be there to cover what is assumed to be the RMC Gwazi announcement.

It is a fantastic park already and these 2 additions will make it even better. BGT is a good park if you like a mix of rides, animals, atmosphere and tasty food. So excited for the upcoming announcement.
