Supposedly we'll get details on that Thursday September 6th. They are supposed to announce all their plans, with phase one being the animal habitats, phase two being the kids area, and zip line ride, and phase three being another resturaunt and hyper coaster.
If this is true, along with Aquatica, and the rumor of a B&M Flyer at Sea World...busch is stepping up BIG TIME.

Tampa, Africa......its all in the same place. We can even go back to calling it "The Dark Continent" Everyone knows of which we're speaking. :)

The Africa/Europe thing is intended for the national "branding" campaign so people understand that the two parks have entirely different themes. The parks themselves haven't actually been renamed. Or if they have, no one's taken the time to tell the park staff about it.

This would be great! Busch Gardens Africa is my "home park", and BGE seems to have the better rides now, so it'd be nice if we got a new hypercoaster!

Its not happening, at least its not being announced yet. The announcement on the 6th was just about Jungala.
