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.
