B & M Hypers are everywhere now in the US, I was hoping for something different like the rumoured Intamin launch coaster.


how can you say that when there are only 6 in the us? And those 6 are virtually on the east coast...


You actually hammer home my point even more, there is eight B & M Hypers in the Eastern half of North America, they're great rides and what people like in coasters is subjective but I know which Intimidator I'd rather be riding if I had to choose. And even if Busch put in the rumoured Intamin launch coaster over a B & M hyper that would be something I personally would find preferable, just my opinion based on what I like in coasters.

In other non-April Fools day news, it looks like Busch is constructing another permanent building for one of its HOS mazes:

Wonder if this will be for a new maze, or if we'll finally see an end to the tent house behind Gwazi?

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay has sent us their latest press release about their most recent celebrity visit, this time from CC Sabathia.

Savoring the final days of spring training, World Champion Yankee ace CC Sabathia got chummy with a giraffe at Busch Gardens Tampa's Serengeti Safari.

Sabathia will stare down less-friendly faces Sunday night when he opens the season for the Bombers against the Red Sox in Boston.

Busch Gardens Tampa's Serengeti Safari is a 65-acre preserve where guests can meet giraffes up close, observe some truly wild behavior from white and black rhinos, talk to zookeepers who are working to save these endangered species, and learn about the different conservation efforts that SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund is making to protect wild places.

I don't know if it is just me, but it looks like CC lost some weight this offseason. Either way, I still hope the Yankees don't repeat. :)

And it will be interesting to see what the next project does end up being. Either way, it will give me more reason to go back to a great park!

Was at the park yesterday. We just wanted to check out the animals and enjoy the gorgeous day. And being that it was spring break, as expected the park was packed! We walked through Sesame Street Safari of Fun and it was especially packed! Air Grover's entire queue was full, about a 45 minute wait. Looks like the area is a big hit!
