    It's hard to tell with you whether you are being sarcastic or honest.

    Going by Electric Eel's construction timeline, the train should be here in a week or two.

    At least the color scheme is good. Wasn't a huge fan at first because they already have orange creds in Sheikra and Scorpion, but I've realized this is a slightly different shade. The black supports complement it well too.

    I'm trying to treat this as a bonus +1 before all hell breaks loose with the RMC.

    Glad this is done, it's a nice addition for the park, just a shame it has collars. Does this make Busch the first park with two triple-launch coasters?

    NOPE, these are better boomerangs and I appreciate how little space they take up. But, even with lap bars, I found it bleh. Put on those weird collars, any interest is gone. At least they’ll be another cred when the RMC opens.

    I for one am pretty excited for this. It's not going to be a world beater but it'll be fun. Looks great in the Stanleyville area as well.

    I’m going to Busch Gardens Tampa (former homepark. Haven’t been there in nearly 4 years, sooooo excited) around April 20. Do we think Tigris will be open by then?

    Maybe, Maybe Not. Normally BGT opens there rides around Late May and Early June (as seen with Cobra's Curse). But the fast developement looks interesting so it could be a real possibility that it opens in March at this pace!

    The way she said "I do love a good renovation story" at 1:42 made me feel as they officially confirmed RMC Gwazi.

    But, on a positive note, there doesn't seem to be any comfort collars?

    Were the collars on the Tempesto/Electric Eel trains when they arrived?

    Shouldn't this go in the Tigris thread?

    Yeah - I think so. I've moved the three posts from the RMC thread.

    Minus the green, which I dont understand, I don't think they are worse than Railblazer. Kinda fits the park with Cheetah Hunt.
