Alexander: Greetings, Florida fans! It’s been a while since we did a general park update for Busch Gardens Tampa, but today’s the day! Let’s take a look at all the progress taking place as 2019 and 2020 projects charge on!
Nick: Sea World has filed the first permits for their 2020 Project with the Orange County government. Let’s take a peek and see what we can uncover!
While some general details were announced on March 1st, the RMC conversion of Gwazi still largely remains a mystery. Now, thanks to a document recently filed with the FAA, we can confirm at least one stat of the new coaster – it will be 210 feet tall!
Nick: After months of speculation, Busch Gardens has finally revealed the first details about Gwazi’s transformation into a hybrid roller coaster! Read on to find out more!
Sean: We spent this lovely morning at SeaWorld Orlando’s Aquatica water park. With short lines and lovely weather, we knocked out all major attractions in just a few hours. On the way out we snapped some pictures of the new KareKare Curl slide, set to open in a few months. Continue reading “Aquatica Orlando – KareKare Curl Construction Update March 1st, 2019”
Alexander: As theme park food festivals rapidly become commonplace (even among regional parks), the gold standard is widely regarded to be Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival. While it’s certainly the most famous, popular, and expensive theme park food festival, we’d like to argue against it being the best.
Enter: SeaWorld’s 7 Seas Food Festival.
Nick: It’s been a little over a week since our last Busch Gardens construction update, and there’s been quite a bit of progress on both of their coaster projects, so let’s take a look!
Nick: We popped over to Busch Gardens Tampa this weekend to check out the latest construction progress of Tigirs and RMC Gwazi. Let’s see how things are progressing!
Nick: Sea World San Diego announced their 2020 plans to add Mako, a 153ft tall B&M Dive coaster earlier this month. Now, thanks to a filing with the San Diego government last week, we can get a much better idea of the new ride’s layout and position in the park. Let’s take a closer look!
Sean: Today we attended a wonderful tour of the new-for-2019 Sesame Street at SeaWorld Orlando! The new themed land will not only be home to some great family rides, but also meet ‘n greets with your furry Sesame Street friends, and of course the brand new parade. Let’s take a look around the construction zone!
Sean: In today’s new Busch Gardens Tampa update we’ll be taking a look at the RMC construction/demolition taking place on Gwazi, the progress made on Tigris, the post-refurb changes on SheiKra, and lots more! Continue reading “Tigris and Gwazi Construction + More – Busch Gardens Tampa Update – January 21st, 2019”
Sean: This weekend was the second weekend of SeaWorld Orlando’s Inside Look. After the success at the San Diego park, SeaWorld Orlando brought the event to their park and it’s been a hit! We’ve been so fortunate to check out 5/6 Inside Look stations, which we’ll give a short recap of in this update. Also in this update you’ll find Sesame Street construction and several additional notes!
Sean: We swung by SeaWorld Orlando today for some rides and food. There are quite some changes to Sesame Street since our last visit 6 days ago, as well as Journey to Atlantis, which is currently closed for a refurbishment. Let’s take a look. Continue reading “SeaWorld Orlando Update – January 12th 2019”
Derrion: The holidays are finally over, which means we will have so many updates for you all in the coming weeks. Over the holidays, we had such an amazing time visiting Sea World San Diego on Christmas Day. This was a very impromptu trip and even though it had been raining the entire day we managed to have a blast.
Sean: SeaWorld San Diego is planning on expanding the park not just through new events but also new attractions, such as one of California’s largest roller coasters. At a recent forum last week SeaWorld San Diego presented their plans for the next few years in detail. Among special events and touch ups around the park, too come new encounters and the chain’s second “Mako“.
