Fan blog: Busch Gardens second among theme parks

Islands of Adventure at Universal Orlando was again voted the nation's best theme park by one of the most influential park fan blogs. But Busch Gardens Tampa Bay zoomed up to second place for the first time in an annual reader poll staged by Theme Park Insider. The blog, which attracts about 200,000 theme park fans a month, is run by a former Los Angeles Times reporter who once worked at Disneyland. Busch Gardens was cited for a series of new attractions despite Disney's California Adventure, which came in third, pouring $1 billion into improvements. The re-done Star Tours ride at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando was named top new attraction while Busch's new $45 million Cheetah Hunt, which combines a launch coaster with a collection of endangered cheetahs, finished second.
