Busch Gardens Tampa- Timbuktu Changes Themes


New Today from Busch Gardens Tampa-

 It seems with the opening of Falcon's Fury in 2014 the entire area of Timbuktu will be changing themes. The new theme being Pantopia- The Spirit of Animals.

 Basically it's getting an animal themed make-over, changing from the current 'desert oasis' theme to one involving critters. It will feature not only the new theme but new concessions and a gift shop to go along with the new ride- Falcon's Fury.

“In addition to the power and allure of Falcon’s Fury™, Pantopia™ will celebrate the spirit of animals, welcome adventurers from the four corners of the earth, explore ancient lore and display fantastic architecture,” says Busch Gardens Park President Jim Dean. “Guests will find multiple portals and doorways and learn about the legends that have drawn journeyers from around the world to Pantopia™. Plus, family favorites like the Scorpion, Phoenix, Bush Flyers, Desert Runners and the Kiddie Train will return.”  

 This new change to an 'animal' theme may well fit into the parks 'long game' plan to add more animals. I suspect this because of the rumors surrounding the park in regards to a possible elephant breeding program.
