I don't think it proves anything yet, but if one side were to be removed, it is likely that both sides would be removed.

Found this from Hatetofly at Orlando United. It looks like this is Gwazi's last year:

I got an anonymous tip that this is indeed Gwazi's last season.


More here.

I wonder if they're going to do something for Kumba's 20th anniversary.

Here's hoping for another 20 years.

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay announced today that after this Sunday, Sandstorm will be retired to make way for a new attraction to be announced soon.

On June 3, Busch Gardens Tampa will bid farewell to a ride that has entertained guests for more than three decades, as the park prepares to drop big news for what lies ahead.

This Sunday, June 2 will be the last day Busch Gardens Tampa guests will be able to ride the Sandstorm. Located in the Timbuktu area of the park, the Sandstorm opened in December 1979. Following the Sandstorm’s departure, Busch Gardens Tampa will announce future plans for Timbuktu.

"DROP" big news? Hmmmmmm :lol:

Plus, looks like a perfect spot for that rumored drop tower.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Although, I would put a small chance that they would go with Moser again, I was pleasantly surprised by Mach Tower back in April.

Poor Sandstorm. BGT is like the new SFMM getting rid of all flat rides!

Hoping for an Intamin Tower!!!

From what I heard from some mechanics, the tower could be a similar design to another Intamin tower. :b
