Zoombezi Bay Update 4.25.08


I swung by the zoo the other day and took some construction pictures. There is still a ton of work to do but the good news is it was 6:30pm on a Friday when I stopped by and they were still hard at work. It appears as though all of the major slides are done so the majority of work left to do is the ride side. Rides I could see: wooden coaster, swinging ship ride, flyers, and a log flume. Enjoy the pictures.

Looks like there are 10 major slides:

Sea Splash tower complex (7 slides):
Slippery Seals 3 body slides (dark blue, aqua, and green all starting from the highest point)
Sea Snakes 2 bowl slides with one or two person rafts (orange and yellow and blue and yellow)
Sea Tubes 2 raft slides loading on same level as bowl slides (green and aqua)

Cyclone is the tornado slide (yellow and blue). Launching from the same tower is Tahitian Twister family raft ride (blue and black).

Dolphin Dash is the six person racer.

Sounds like a pretty good line-up for a brand new park. Hopefully there will be an animal element in the future like the Dolphin slide at Sea World's Aquatica.
