    Not surprised a lot of the structure is going. It can't be in good condition after rotting away in Florida's humidity for 4 years.

    There's something oddly satisfying about seeing Kumba get re-painted over all other coasters. Good to see it's being taken care of.

    Seeing Kumba being looked after makes me happy.

    That’s rubbish, I planned to go on Tuesday (allowing it to be delayed a few days).

    I know, can't be helped in a 365 day park, refurb schedules do change quite regularly
    :(

    If you're still in Florida by next weekend, I'd suggest visiting on Friday for the 60th Celebration kickoff event (Gwazi announcement, fireworks and 9pm ride close) and staying overnight in a cheap hotel so you can grab some Kumba rides on Saturday (if it reopens on time that is).

    The new show at the park is soft opening currently also, so you may get a chance to see that :)

    That’s the one draw back of a 365 season,

    Busch Gardens just announced that they are receiving North America's tallest, fastest and steepest hybrid coaster! They also confirmed RMC's involvement.
