    A successful trip to BGT

    So, exactly a week ago I was at Busch Gardens Tampa. My family was already going to Tampa, so I begged them to go to Busch Gardens. Specifically because I wanted to ride my first coaster. Before this trip, every time I tried to get on a coaster I would bail out. I vividly remember having a panic...

    For the first time in four years - Busch Gardens Tampa. April 15, 2019.

    While this is still fresh in my head, I’ve decided to write up a trip report about my visit here. As a matter of fact, it was my first visit to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay since November 11, 2015 — nearly four long years! Formerly a Tampa native, I grew up surrounded by the animals, greenery and...

    Busch Gardens Williamsburg Project 2021 - 355ft Height Waiver Filed

    I thought I'd start it as a separate thread, but BGW Fans report that Busch Gardens Williamsburg has filed a height waiver for a 355ft structure in the Oktoberfest area. Thoughts?? https://bgwfans.com/2019/bgw-project-2021/

    Battle of the Busch Gardens: Tampa VS Williamsburg

    Which do you all think is better? After finally going to Williamsburg on March 23rd, I say that Tampa edges it out (Maybe it's my childhood bias? I haven't been back in 4 years but I am changing that next month). If you've been to both - which do you prefer, and why?

    Mr. Freeze Reverse Blast v. Sky Rocket 2 Model (Tempesto)

    I think both of these coasters are excellent launch coasters. Premier rides did a great job with both. My question to you is which coaster do you prefer. I would have to give the edge to Mr Freeze because of the intense backward launch and i cant get enough of that inverted top hat.

    What is your favorite Arrow Custom looper, operating or defunct?

    I've had bad experiences on many of these but Loch Ness Monster at BGW is a fairly smooth and pleasant arrow looper. What was your favorite one.

    SeaWorld Future Additions Leak Thread

    Sorry to create my third thread of the day today, but according to the San Diego Union Tribune, SeaWorld San Diego has filed for planning permission to build yet another roller coaster in 2019, just one year after Electric Eel. According to the permit, the ride will stand at 22ft tall and will...

    Sand Serpent @ BGT to become enclosed for 2018

    http://touringcentralflorida.com/2017/06/23/sandserpent-busch-gardens-tampa-enclosed/ Sounds like an interesting move. Although I am not a fan of the Dark Knight at various SF parks, I think something like this could be a very nice experience if done correctly.
