Busch Gardens Tampa Project 2016 : Construction Update #6

New Railroad Tracks & More Ride Footings!
We're back with installment number six in our "BGT Project 2016" construction update series. Since our last visit to the park, work steadily continues at the construction site of Busch Gardens' 2016 attraction, with visible progress on the installation of the new Serengeti Railway tracks, and the appearance of more ride footings near the center of the construction site. For the latest details and 10 new pictures, be sure to check out our latest construction update in the area below. 
The installation process has finally begun on the brand new railroad tracks spanning between the Cheetah Hunt Plaza and the decommissioned Egypt train station. The layout of the railroad tracks has been slightly altered, now veering slightly towards the left from its former course. In addition, the railroad crossing pathways under construction in the previous weeks have since been paved over, now revealing a brand new product.  
More ride footings have appeared near the center of the work site, with workers preparing the surrounding area for the bridge that the Serengeti Express will pass over. Another concrete slab has been poured in the center of the work site, which will likely be the future site of a pedestrian railroad crossing.
In other news, Busch Gardens Tampa has recently filed a permit to copyright the name "Cobra's Curse". While this is likely the rumored name for the 2016 attraction, details have not been finalized and the park has not confirmed anything at this time. Remember, this name is tentative and subject to change at any given time. 
The park has however invited members of the media to attend a special presentation on May 28th, 2015, to reveal more details regarding the 2016 attraction. For complete event coverage from May 28th's media event, be sure to give us a follow on Twitter @TheBGTBuzz!
