Well, I'm looking forward to adding to the numbers a week from today. I'm taking a tour but should get a chance to jump on a few rides including, hopefully, Sheikra, Montu, Gwazi, etc.

No doubt that this new waterpark would boost attendance. I can't wait to splash around in SheiKra's wave pool.

Been a long while since I've been to BGT and that's definately a park to do with the family. Most likely not another 10 years until I make it back there.

rollergator's avatar Just once give me a ride on 'Kra without the second holding brake...during one of their "early morning passholder openings" I had heard about rides where the train *slid through* that brake instead of getting totally LOCKED...I didn't get any of those... :(

gator needs some *ejector* airtime baby...;)

I got about 30 of those on media day. The other 50 rides it was hitting pretty hard with about half of those stopping.

I guess the B&M doesn't think the GP can handle airtime.
