It's a jungle in thereJungala will be located in the Congo area of Busch Gardens Africa. It replaces the Python coaster, which the park closed in 2006. The centerpiece of the new land will be a 35-foot tall rock formation that will bisect the area into two levels. It will allow guests to observe orangutans from observation platforms designed to look like tree houses and Bengal tigers swimming in plunge pools from underwater windows in underground caves. Busch Gardens says that colorful stiltwalkers, dressed as jungle animals and trees, will parade through the mythical village.
The Jungle Flyers zip-line attraction will be geared to younger children and will send them soaring above the treetops in one-person ride vehicles. It looks as if it will be great fun, but also looks as if it may generate huge lines and long waits. The Wild Surge mini-freefall ride also appears to be geared to younger kids. Located in a "mountain crater," it will bounce 14 passengers at a time up and down a 40-foot structure above a waterfall. The Tree Top Trails play structure will allow kids to burn off some energy by navigating around its rope bridges, climbing nets, crawl tubes, and other features.
Dining options in Jungala will include The Bengal Bistro, which I believe will be a sit-down restaurant, and Orang Cafe, which will be a more casual eatery with salads and sandwiches.
