Busch Gardens Tampa Update – 20 March, 2019

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!

– In the past, many of our images have been posted, featured, and shared on forums, social media platforms and websites around the web. We work hard to provide the coverage that we do, and we encourage our audience to share our content and use our images, BUT ONLY IF proper credit is given to thecoasterkings.com. Thank you! –

Our top priority is Kumba, which reopened from its offseason rehab with a fresh coat of paint!

Kumba’s teal really shines now. The paint didn’t look bad before, but now it’s glistening! 

We really appreciate Busch’s commitment to keeping the coasters looking fresh as a daisy.

Tigris has been testing periodically. Rumor has  it  the ride could open as soon as the first week of April!

Soon SheiKra will have a new partner in crime!

All around the park, Busch Gardens is highlighting their 60th anniversary. Here’s a nice tribute to their original thrill ride, Python!

This beautiful piece is a work in progress. That white outline will be SheiKra hitting the splashdown!

RMC Gwazi continues to tease us with tremendous construction activity.

I’d love to have this as a postcard, wouldn’t you?

The whole park is just abuzz with construction these days. Who would’ve thought Busch Gardens would have TWO marquee roller coasters under construction at the same time?!

Any guesses on what the name will be??

Queue work is taking place as well as track work!

Night rides on Scorpion!

And Kumba, of course, which glows a lovely aqua color at night with the help of blue flood lighting.

That concludes this Busch Gardens update! We’ll be back again this week for more Tigris and RMC Gwazi action!
