Exactly. This is a great new thing that’s exciting, if, you happen to be going there anyway.
Fine, they're very strong coasters with exciting airtime moments, unique layout and comfortable restraints...I especially like waiting in lines for extended periods without moving
I'm actually looking forward to it.
It won't be the best coaster at BGT, but at the same time they are not bad rides at all. Backwards launches are lots of fun.
It's always a positive to see new investment in the park, especially when it's replacing an SBNO attraction. BGT are having a really strong 2 years with Tigris and RMC 2020.
Wow, that looks better than I imagined it would. Simple but nice, and brings some new life to that area of the park.
Nice landscaping around the ride it looks like
Yeah it looks great, much better with theme too than Tempesto. Love the ride worked at Tempesto, but I am so glad they did the theme with this and the que house. Very nice, also like that it Roars before launching out of the station. Great job BGT, may have to take a road trip here soon just to ride it to bring back memories.
Sigh.. my friend is trying to get me to go to Busch on Thursday and I'm like... Friday. LOL...
Go today if you can, Tigris soft opening and much lighter crowds than Friday.
I wish. But I have Dr Appt today... plus I also promised a friend in Tampa a ride home from work after Busch closes. Darn media event. LOL
What type of wait times are we expecting for this once the opening rush dies down? I have serious concerns with the throughput.
that's definitely a short ride. Will be fun for days when it's not packed, but I don't think I'd wait an hour+ for it.
My two cents, it’s not worth anything more than 20 minutes. I rode it’s twin, Tempesto, and HATED it. And I’m usually at least meh on coasters at worst.
^I really liked Electric Eel/Tempesto haha, guess we can't all enjoy the same things. These coasters definitely divide enthusiasts, although in my opinion it's definitely more exciting than anything Universal has opened in the past 5 years.
Personally I'd say it's worth 30 mins. Tempesto got lines of between 60-90mins when it first opened, which is not unreasonable for a new coaster. It's around 20-30 mins most of the time now.
So true I was on the opening crew of TEMPASTA but yeah it was bad, i remember at the front we had to scan people for lose articles give them a fanny pack to put loose articles in, and then the fun with the comfort collars and them wanting us to do at least 35-40 launches an hour, LOL. I think the highest we did was 32 launches when I was in controlls, but the comfort collars sucked, we use to do guest service rides in the morining and we would not wear the comfort collar, much better ride. But I am excited to ride TIGRIS , just because for old time sakes of working at BGW.
See you Monday Tigris.
Looks like you had fun.
The madness begins! Not quite the 4 hours on Cheetah Hunt's opening day but it's still busy!
I don't even think we had that long of a wait on opening day of Tempesto. Also, we had the bad weather all day. Maybe its an omen for the coasters. Gonna make a trip there monday, just for old time sakes for all the times i rode Tempesto.
