I think they're pretty good. Better than most B&M's. Nothing incredible, but pretty good for me.

I posted a question recently about the fate of Rhino Rally and now that post is gone. Was there something in my post that warranted removal from this thread? If there was what was it so I don't make the same mistakes in the future?

Your username is Kumba2013 but you thought Kumba was "meh"?!?!

^That's kind of what I thought too.
Nice to see vertical construction has begun, this will be one hell of a drop ride!
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.

Busch Gardens Tampa has sent us a press release regarding the upcoming remodeling of Timbuktu into the realm of Pantopia, encompassing the brand new Falcon's Fury!

Busch Gardens® Tampa has announced that when it launches Falcon’s Fury™, North America’s tallest freestanding drop tower, in spring 2014, it will also unveil its newest land – Pantopia™.

Currently known as Timbuktu, the fully remodeled Pantopia™ will boast elaborately-jeweled theming and feature thrilling rides and attractions, sensational new food and beverage options, exciting entertainment, shopping, a renovated indoor theater and more.

Located in the heart of Busch Gardens, the centerpiece of Pantopia™ will be Falcon’s Fury™. The one-of-a-kind drop tower will stand at 335 feet and beckon guests from across the globe as it takes riders soaring straight down. At the ride’s highest point there is an element of surprise. Like its bird of prey namesake, riders will pivot 90 degrees in midair to a face-down dive position. An instant later they'll plunge 60 mph at 3.5 Gs straight down.

In addition to Falcon’s Fury™, this completely reimagined land will be a creative haven that has been inspired by centuries of world travelers, offering something for every member of the family.

“In addition to the power and allure of Falcon’s Fury™, Pantopia™ will celebrate the spirit of animals, welcome adventurers from the four corners of the earth, explore ancient lore and display fantastic architecture,” says Busch Gardens Park President Jim Dean. “Guests will find multiple portals and doorways and learn about the legends that have drawn journeyers from around the world to Pantopia™. Plus, family favorites like the Scorpion, Phoenix, Bush Flyers, Desert Runners and the Kiddie Train will return.”

For more updates about Falcon’s Fury™ and Pantopia™, go to falconsfury.com. And be the first to know about new events and special deals by following the park’s blog at BuschGardensTampaBlog.com.

This is really going to pump new life into Timbuktu! Great to see that area getting some well-deserved TLC.

I wonder if Sand Serpent and the carousel will still be in this area or moved to other areas of the park since they weren't mentioned?

Can I park my donkey here?

Love it that Busch Gardens is re-theking this land. I hope Scorpion gets a new color during this conversion, as well as a new 4-D show for the empty theater building.
Good Job Busch Gardens!
