It's Busch Tampa, not Cedar Point. You're overthinking this.

Ride Cheetah Hunt, ride Cobra's Curse, ride Montu (because it's there, not because it'll actually get lines) and then just do whatever.

The Skyride lets you off in Stanleyville near the log flume. You'd be better off just walking from Montu to Pantopia.

Okay, thanks. Good to know that the day can be a little less "planned" because of that.

Oh, I almost forgot. Eat the pretzels near Falcon's fury or the BBQ near the Sheikra splash. If anyone in the group is over 21 they get free beer at the Garden Gate Cafe so go there because they'll need it after going along with you while you whore Air Grover when they'd all probably rather ride Serengeti Express Train and see rhinos and giraffes and sh*t. :lol:

Definitely do not miss the pretzels, particularly the pretzel bacon fury.

THIS.

Yeah, this. =)

BGT continues to hold its place in my memory as one of my top parks, and its coaster collection always comes to mind as one of the best and highest-quality I've encountered. But as a (not that this is rare or special) big fan of Steel Vengeance, this new RMC is the icing, the cherry, the....[drools]

I grew up with this park, combine that with its stellar coaster lineup and great atmosphere and you have what is one of my favorite parks including bias.

Ooh, new update. Big headline on local news, got excited, then read the article. Well, at least we know how tall NewGwazi will be. https://www.wfla.com/news/hillsborough-county/updated-busch-gardens-coaster-to-be-steepest-fastest-wooden-hybrid-in-world/1846158059 ( okay, I'll be nice, GnuGwazi has been approved by the FAA for 210 feet.)

^ Nice to get a confirmation! The fact that it's taller than SheiKra AND it's steeper AND it's only going to have a lap bar is still just mind blowing to me. :lmao:
