Just a very long shot darkhorse rumor idea here but since Intamin is just the speculated and rumored manufacturer at this point but not confirmed, is it possible that this could be an American version of that new B&M prototype going to Gardaland? I remember recently seeing some track pictures from the B&M track fabrication facility in Ohio in a strange color scheme that possibly could work for the desert/jungle/cheetah theme. I don't know if B&M manufactures track for foreign rides at the Ohio plant, but with no other north american B&M's announced for 2011 that track is either for Gardaland or a yet to be announced project. Also considering Busch's longstanding relationship with B&M they would be a perfect candidate for another ride especially a prototype (wasn't Sheikra the first large scale dive machine)? But also considering they already have almost a full B&M catalog they'd be a great candidate for a ride from a different manufacturer as well. Just an idea......
Busch Gardens Tampa Bay has sent us a new press release and photos of the latest additions to their animal family, baby flamingos!
Since June 3, seven baby Caribbean flamingos have hatched at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay – the most recent, born on Sunday, July 25. The babies are on display along with approximately 125 adult flamingos in the Bird Gardens area of the park.
As these babies prove, newly hatched chicks are not pink, but in fact have gray or white down feathers. Their pink coloring comes from the carotenoid pigments they consume as part of their diet. They won’t lose all of their darker feathers for a few years.
Flamingos have long resided at Busch Gardens. Their bright color and gentle nature have made them a favorite of park guests for many years.
Change the scheme, Alter the mood! Electrify the boys and girls if you would be so kind!
I really need to get my butt to Busch Gardens this year. Going to to try for sometime in September or October one weekend (and take advantage of my Club TPR discount). I need a SheikRa, Kumba & Montu fix bad!
All of the sudden, going back to Disney/Orlando next spring took on a whole new interest for me. We may just have to make that drive over to Tampa. As already said, great idea BGT, looking forward to the next installment.
