I enjoy 3 things in life, coasters, video games and girls. To have all 3 at the same time will be a dream come ture!
1. Kumba 2. Millie 3. Mantis 4. Lightning Racer 5. Wicked Twister (Front Seat)
Bush? He's to busy to run any parks (sorry, running family gag-I know my family is boring:))
The busch parks however are supposed to get new 4d movies I believe. I wish BGW would build a major new coaster. Then again, I love it just the way it is (but would a flyer hurt?).
How many rides must a man go on, before you may call him a fan?

Sea World San Antonio is building a theater for "Haunted Lighthouse"
BGW, BGT and Sea World San Diego are also all supposed to get this same movie.
Also @ BGW I don't see a new coaster coming tell 2005 because we usually get something ever other year.
1995 Escape From Pompeii
1999 Apollo's Chariot
2001 Ireland, Corkscrew Hill
2003 Haunted Lighthouse 4D, Trappers Smokehouse, Coaster revamp
2005 new coaster (most likely) for when BGW turns 30
* our shows don't follow the ever other yearpolicy
*BGW is considering removing another coaster in 04 and u know it isn't one of the B&M's or the coaster that's being revamped for 03
Alpengeist:The worlds tallest at 196 ft, fastest at 67 mph and most twisted inverted coaster.

At BGT there is no Pirates 3D to replace. They're gutting the dolphin stadium to make room for R.L. Stine's Haunted Lighthouse. Yes, the author of the Goosebumps series. Let's hope it turns out better than the lame Goosebumps attraction Disney had at its MGM park 4-5 years ago.
Well Swoosh, for what it is worth, Australia's Dreamworld and Wonderland Sydney are both built in eucalypt forested areas, which down here is called bush. It is certainly more 'bushy' than a lot of the scrub in Africa. :)
I've never been to one of the Busch parks myself, but photographs suggest to me, that they are very picturesque parks, with emphasis on scenery, as opposed to thrill rides, or theming (ie Disney/Universal 'fantasy' theming). Quite honestly, I believe that this creates a much better atmosphere than any other.
You've also got a selection of thrill rides, on top of the atmosphere, that are some of the best in the world - and the polls show that. If you want them to expand at a rate such as a Six Flags or Cedar Fair park (well, Cedar Point), then I think that is what you should expect from them. If you're like me, and would prefer a park with integrity, ie a balance of all aspects of a genuinely good 'family day out', then a Busch Gardens or similar would be right for you.
And as has to always be somehow intertwined with anything an Aussie says with regards to coasters - be happy with what you've got, you could always end up down here. ;)
So what if the best coaster in Australia is a second hand Arrow?
SW Orlando is building a shopping complex complete with restaurants and bars. They are trying to cater to the locals as they spend a lot of money at SW. Also, there is land clearing at an area of the park unrelated to the new construction.
Who knows what's next!

I don't know if that's a good thing to change Loch Ness. Its a classic I think. I hope they don't change the theme too much from what it is since its unique.

Lets all say it together
NEW MORGAN TRAINS!!!!!!!!!!
Art, Art, Art, everyone wants it, some need it, most don't want to pay for it.
I believe the other land clearing in SWO is in the very back right of the park. I'll check it out on my next trip and report back.
