From Erik YatesSupposedly 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.

From steve leeThe 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.

From Danielle HThis 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!
