on the TPR FB page, someone who was at BGT yesterday responded to me and said that things that fit in pockets (I specifically asked about zippered pockets), were being allowed on ride, and not having to be stored.
if that holds? I recommend cargo shorts with zippered pockets - they served me well on the USA trip, and in Japan last year.
Journey To Atlantis has a separate load and unload station. That's why loose articles aren't allowed on it. They also hadn't allowed bags in line at Manta or Mako either (both just have the little bins big enough for small items, like glasses and hats). Manta does however have fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo in the station by the exit (or did last time I noticed).
Last night Theme Park Review was invited to a VIP preview of this year's Busch Gardens Food and Wine Festival. This event returns for another year of great food and drink options, concerts and other entertainment--and of course, it is just one more reason to enjoy the park's many coasters and experiences. During this preview event (which was presented as a surprise for annual passholders alongside invited VIP guests), we had a chance to sample options from all of the food cabins, as well as enjoying an Eaglemania concert (described as "the world's greatest Eagles tribute band") and a special fireworks show (not something that will be offered regularly throughout the event).
As has been true for the past food festival events between SeaWorld and Busch Gardens, the best way to enjoy the event is to get a sampler lanyard and try as much as possible. With each year the event has grown to include more flavors, more food cabins and more overall to enjoy, and the beauty of these lanyards is that it allows you to pay less per item if you commit to a certain number of items on a lanyard.
BGT and Seaworld parks in general always do a great job with their festivals and this event looks really good as well. I'd love to get to it a day before it closes, hopefully Iron Gwazi opens before it ends and I can check em both out.
