Though I'd been to the park several times, this was my first visit to Busch Gardens Africa with camera in hand. As usual, I took a bazillion pictures, but most of them sucked. Here are the few that didn't (so much).
The park's train ride. Definitely above average, since there are animals to look at along the way.
I'm not really a show kinda guy, but I gave this one a try--and it was pretty darned good!
Akbar's Adventure Tours Simulator was, of course, not operating. Nor was this Dippin' Dots stand.
I like Montu. Just not as much as I like Top Gun: The Jet Coaster over at Carowinds.
Tut's Tomb is a walk-though. A minor attraction, but nice.
And it has a very well-themed gift shop!
Another shot of Montu, this time from the train.
The Crown Colony House is the park's full service restaurant.
Here's the inside. Note the view of the "Serengeti Plain."
Assorted animals. I think these ones are from Scandinavia.
My favorite "animal thing" at the park, this half-aquarium type habitat.
The same thing from the Sky Ride.
We skipped Rhino Rally since the river section wasn't working.
BGA has a great Sky Ride. Coming up is the "turn station."
Yay, now I have this picture of Kumba, too!
Congo River Rapids. The blue-green track in the background is Kumba.
Scorpion, with Stanley Falls (log flume) behind.
Stanley Falls, with SheiKra in the background.
Tanganyika Tidal Wave had way more theming than I thought it would.
SheiKra is a Top Ten coaster in my book. Here you can see how well it interacts with the midway and its surroundings.
Here's a shot of the queue and approach to the lift from the station house.
The splashdown, with the second vertical drop behind.
I just like this building. That's Gwazi in the background.
Gwazi was only running one side. Hardly surprising. I do like this ride, but I was afraid that trying to ride it would ruin an otherwise great day. ;o)
