Falcon's Fury seems to have been down for quite some time now and apparently they're waiting on new parts to come? Wonder what's going on  :roll:

Just an update on Falcon's Fury: the ride has been shut for months after sustaining severe damage from a much stronger than normal lightning strike. Replacement parts from Intamin have now been installed, but I'm told that the ride has to be tested and commissioned again as if it were brand new.

The park want to reopen it ASAP, guest services are currently saying it will be back open in time for Howl-O-Scream however I wouldn't be surprised if it reopened earlier.

Busch Gardens has announced Tigirs, a brand new Premier Rides Sky Rocket II triple launch coaster for 2019.

Image

Busch Gardens also just massively teased RMC Gwazi for 2020, saying (with emphasis) that Gwazi has always had a ROCKY ride and that it (Gwazi) will be "revamped" into a whole new ride experience for 2020.

Not to mention they did it in a 'Hybrid' announcement!
I don't really care about Tigris, its an off the shelf model, but Gwazi? oh hohohoh.

Busch Gardens Tampa have filed a construction permit to "partially demolish" some structures and fully demolish certain buildings.

It is not known where in the park this is related to although it is largely expected to be related to the previously teased Rocky Mountain conversion of Gwazi for 2020.

How do you reveal the train design for your new roller coaster when the train itself isn't ready and you want to reveal it at IAAPA? Simple - make the train in cake form of course!

The train design for Tigris, the Premier Rides Sky Rocket coaster due to open next year, has been revealed at IAAPA today, with a special cake made in the form of the train unveiled at the show:

And for those who want a non edible version (and for when the cake has been eaten), there was also a concept image shared:

Does this mean Tigris will use the 2 car trains instead of the 3 car trains used on other SeaWorld sky rocket twos, or do you think this will change?
