Notes

Busch Gardens - Africa, one of Florida's most popular theme parks, offers the Southeastern US's fastest, largest, most nerve-jangling roller coasters, incongruously set in an interpretation of colonial-era Africa. A sedate monorail journey allows inspection of a variety of African wildlife, but by far the most popular of the twenty-odd rides is Gwazi , a double wooden roller coaster that pits the two against each other in a race to finish first. Other winners include the nerve-jangling Montu and the enormous Kumba . For those weary of the G forces, the water rides Stanley Falls and Congo River are a refreshing alternative on a hot afternoon.
