Hi! I a noob at this site, but I have a disscusion topic. Let's say if the entire BG Tampa Timbuktu area was getting reovated. What would your new Timbuktu look like? I was just wondering.

Well, Timbuktu has the kiddie rides and the kiddie coaster. That fills a niche between the toddlers at Sesame Street Safari and the rest of the park. No reason to change it.

There was a rumor about a year ago of a drop tower being built where the octopus ride is and some plans posted somewhere, but I haven't heard anything more.

Yeah. Tyler, don't worry about signaling a thread is over. Many TPI readers are not on the site as often as people like me (you know, others have lives LOL!) So someone may have something valid to add weeks after a thread has petered out. It's not really your job to say a thread is over, even if you started it. The people will decide.
