Alexander: Tigris at Busch Gardens Tampa bay has been open for a couple weeks now – with a few rides under our belt, we decided to take some time to do a little photo shoot with Florida’s newest coaster!
Back in late March we broke the news that permits had been filed for SeaWorld Orlando’s 2020 attraction. Thanks to a public records request through the Orange County Government, we can now share the site plan which reveals new details about the project, and confirms it will indeed be a roller coaster!
Get ready for an episode full of reviews! This includes Time Traveler, Copperhead Strike, Tigris, Popcorn Revenge and Wilderness! In that area, RMC Hybrid Untamed will open soon and we talked to park director Mascha Van Till! After that, we spin the Manufacturer Wheel of Fortune and speak out about our favorite coasters from the manufacturer that pops up. Enjoy!

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!

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!
