Yesterday, Busch Gardens Africa in Tamp Bay, Florida announced their new addition for 2010, Sesame Street’s Safari of Fun. Opening in Spring of next year, this new land will be an excellent addition to the park. Safari of Fun will replace the old and outdated Land of the Dragons and will insert familiar characters into the park that the little ones are sure to enjoy.
Featuring more then a dozen new attractions, this new Sesame play land will have fun for all of the small toddlers in the park with lots of colors, rides, shows, and even the characters! While, this area will feature your favorite Sesame Street friends, but they will be tastefully incorporated to fit the African theme carried out in the park. This will not be a random kiddie land, but instead will be an African themed kid area that happens to be themed to Sesame Street. A much better fit for the park.
Highlights of the new area will be Air Grover, a fun kiddie coaster sure to excite, The Count’s Zambezi Rally, a car ride through the desert, Zoe-Patra & the Hippos of the Nile, a log flume just for kids, Oscar’s Swamp Stomp, a water filled play area that is sure to be popular on those hot Florida days, and Sunny Day Theater, an incredible theater that will feature shows for all to enjoy.
To many, this announcement comes as no surprise as this year Busch Gardens Europe opened Forest of Fun. Pictured above, you can see just how popular the addition to Busch Gardens Europe was so it was smart for the designers at World of Discovery to bring this hit over to the Floridian park. Like the Florida addition, Forest of Fun kept true to the European theme with castle and alpine inspired design but with a bright, colorful twists.
