I doubt it'll be a large coaster, the spot there in doesn't have much room. Also Roller Coaster Database has nothing listed and well, those people tend to know everything before the general public.

Anyone check the Tampa newspapers for building permits listed to ABE or BGT?

I am going to use Mr. Creative's technique here:

Ms. Hood- "I doubt it'll be a large coaster, the spot there in doesn't have much room."

I Respond- There is PLENTY of room! The construction site is HUGE if you have actually been to the park to see it, as it borders a huge part of the Serengeti Plains. We already have a VERY VERY good idea of what it will be. An Intamin Rocket Coaster.

Ms. Hood- "Also Roller Coaster Database has nothing listed and well, those people tend to know everything before the general public."

I Respond- RCDB is not the MOST up-to-date site though it is up-to-date. You should use Screamscape. It already has been predicting a Rocket Coaster since May, including possible blueprints, maps, etc. Screamscape rarely misses off the ball here.

Mr. Bell- "It could be a dark ride"

I Respond- Nope. It is flat out to big for a dark ride, and it would really crush the land scape, a big building right next to the Serengeti Plains and all.

It will be an Intamin launched coaster. I saw the blueprint. Google it.

RCDB doesn't deal in rumors. If there's nothing official, it's not going to show up there.

I also saw the layout looks pretty good.

^Oh, ok. Maybe, though it would most likely be a very small part with more of an animal encounter like thing (maybe somthing like Dolphin's Plunge encounter except on a coaster with cheetahs?) than a storyline.

TH should know that the construction site is taking over the Hippo area.

LOL Nick, I miss TH's imput.

For everyone else, you can go to Screamscape as stated above, or even BGTNation, Johnnyupsidown, BGTGuide, ect for updated pictures of the construction and info.

I'm an employee at Busch Gardens. All I can say is they have deliberately put clues up around the park... its just a matter as to if you have the right tools to decode them.

I can't tell you what it is as all employees sign contractes, etc, etc prohibiting us to do so.
