Hmm. I can't think of any sites you might get helpful information from, but I do know that you should ride every roller coaster. Ride Kumba in the back on the right or left. It rules back there and it's one of B&M's best multi-loopers.

All the coasters are fun, but Kumba stands out far above the rest. It's easily the best thrill in the park. If you want to shell out a lot of cash, you should also do the giraffe feeding safari thing. That was really awesome getting close to those amazing animals. BGT is a great park. It's got awesome animals and great thrills. I don't know about Rhino Rally; it was closed after tipping over when I went. I hear it's decent and not too thrilling.

You could also feed the birds in the bird cage feeding area thing. Sorry, I don't know names of anything except the coasters, so I use fifty adjectives to help. :) That's a pretty interesting experience. Birds fly down and land on your shoulders and hands to eat the nectar you get in a little cup. That costs like a buck or something.

Watch some shows! Busch always has great shows!

Check out the dolphin show too. I don't know if they got rid of it or not, but it's awesome.

I hope I helped. I tried my best. Enjoy your trip! It's a great park!

Yes you cannot afford to miss Kumba, I went in January and rode it 8 times. Also, Montu is a great inverted coaster, one of the fastest around. Avoid eating at the restaurant near the stables, the food is just not very good and they only serve a few different meals. Rhino Rally was fun, but we had to skip the water portion, because another vehicle was stuck. You get to see the animals on that ride though. I also enjoyed the Sky Lift, as it lets you see alot of animals you would miss by only walking the park. Bring your walking shoes! The park is huge

Hope this helps

I went to BGT last week and they still had a lot of work to do on the Python. I'd say it'll still be closed when you visit. I think they're trying to get it done by May. Have fun!

Ride Gwazi, then Montu then high tail it back to the back of the park and marathon Kumba should have no lines

Just visited the park on Friday the 11th. Python was running off and on throughout the day. I tried to get on it once and sat in the seat when it broke down. It looked freshly painted, yellow and black.

Kumba and Montu both awsome B&M's. Scorpian was decent and both sides of Gwazi were great.

Didn't think Rhino Ralley was worth the 45 minute wait. Take the train around the park and you can see just as many animals.

Sky ride was the only ride shut down for the day due to high winds. All in all, I had a great time at BGT!

The dolphin show has been gone for awhile, it's being replaced by Haunted Lighthouse...

RR has been disappointing for all involved, LOL....but you DO have to try it once before the park decides it's not worth the effort and expense to keep it running.

The coasters other than Python are all *world-class*...an Anton looper with laps, a great GCI (it IS dueling again pretty consistently, right?), and a pair of awesome Beemers.

I'll probly be there Thursday.....If not Firday for sure then off to Ybor. Maybe I'll see you there.....Ride everything!! I haven't been in a few weeks so I don't know what's going down with Python but you won't be missing much if you don't get to ride it. Have fun and maybe I'll see you around.

Mike, I've noticed that you mention Python in just about every BGT-related thread? Why? It's a terrible ride.

Gwazi was running three trains on Friday. Two on the Tiger side and one on the Lion side. If you we're fortunate enough to catch the Lion side at the same time you were riding the Tiger side it made for a better experience.
