^Don't worry. The ride is kinda forgettable without the air. Maybe they are adding air to Gwazi?? That would make the presence of the president of the Busch conservation fund and VP of zoological operations make sense. I know that if I were the president of the Busch conservation fund and VP of zoological operations I would want to be there when they announced air on Gwazi Tiger. ;)
Chi...not *certain* about the tigers, but IIRC we were told to expect their return to the park sooner rather than later. I'd be quite surprised if they were NOT coming back when the revamped Python area reopens.
Python was the first "dive" coaster at BGA....not even the preservationist in me was too bothered about its demise.
"Busch Gardens Tampa Bay to Announce New Attraction for 2008"
"Lush jungle villas features exotic animal habitats and rides in the park's most ambitious project to date" "... Busch Gardens is creating it's newest adventure - an exotic jungle experience where discovery and exploration invite guests to connect with the world around them."
I guess we'll all know tomorrow morning. Best, Ross (Note they still call themselves "Busch Gardens Tampa Bay")
No ride announcements yet, but don't forget SheiKra isn't that old and it's basically being marketed as a new coaster since the floorless trains were added. BGA is going to get some mileage out of that before they announce a new coaster.
Two signature rides add to the excitement of Jungala: a zip line experience offers three different flight patterns above the tree tops for young adventurers and another ride launches guests up above a towering waterfall.
Didn't S&S just put some waterfall drop ride on their website?
