Best plan of attack!Busch Gardens Tampa: How to get around Busch Gardens?
From John McLaughlanPlanning to visit BGT on Tuesday 18th June. Our last visit was back in 2000. Can anyone recommend a good plan of attack for getting on all the main rides.

We have no time constraints and plan to arrive as early as possible and stay till closing time. Area there rides or attractions to avoid or are they all unmissable.
We will also have the option of a second visit.

From Mike GallagherAnd the word "abbreviation" is longer than the word it's abbreviating.

From Tony DudaJust do them in order as you go clockwise around the park- Gwazi, Sheikra, Kumba, Sand Serpent, Scorpion, Cheetah Hunt and Montu. Redo Cheetah Hunt and Montu. Ride the Skyride back to Sheikra and Kumba. Fit in Rhino Rally and Iceploration where you can.

If you want to see animals, see the Cheetah Run, Edge of Africa, primate trail, train ride the savanna from Nairobi to Congo, Curiosity caverns for reptiles, Jungala for tigers. Early morning they may have view-able animal operations in the Animal hospital in Nairobi. Birds and kangaroos areas are between Gwazi and Sheikra.
The stage shows at Desert Grill and Marrakesh are so-so, Sesame Street area is very much a kiddie area. Tut's tomb takes about 2 minutes to see.
From John McLaughlanThanks for the advice guys...
