Busch Tampa reveals improvements for the new year

Posted Monday, January 20, 2003 3:46 AM | Contributed by supermandl

Busch Gardens Tampa announced Friday several changes for 2003. The park will add a $300 premium "keeper for a day" program that will allow guests to trail and work with a zoo keeper behind the scenes. They'll also open a new theater to show "Haunted Lighthouse," based on a story by Goosebumps author R.L. Stine. In addition to changes to the Festhaus, the park will set aside 26 acres as a free-roaming habitat for their three endangered white rhinos.

Great, its good to see that BGT is finally adding a new rollercoaster. *extreme sarcasm*

What? What's wrong with the ones they have? I'd give anything to have that collection in my back yard!

No airtime hyper or airtime filled woodie (Gwazi is designed as a family ride) that's what's wrong!! That's all they need is one airtime machine!

Some people are never pleased.

I think they got that Das Festhaus confused with the capital project list from Busch VA. I can't imagine Arabian shows in Oktoberfest. Just my opinion. I can imagine Das Feshaus getting a much needed overhaul, like a/c, serving lines, and retail, but where is there one in Tampa?

No, they are great rides, but they haven't had a new coaster since 1999. I've just been anxious for a new coaster for awhile now. In other words, I'm bored of them. *shrugs*
