Busch Gardens: Goodbye, Timbuktu — hello, Pantopia

When Busch Gardens opens its new thrill ride Falcon's Fury, a 335-foot drop tower scheduled to open in the spring, it will be in a newly reimagined land called Pantopia that will have jeweled theming, a renovated theater, new bakery and snack spots, a Busch Gardens announcement says.

"Pantopia will celebrate the spirit of animals, welcome adventurers from the four corners of the earth, explore ancient lore and display fantastic architecture," said Jim Dean, Busch Gardens president. "Guests will find multiple portals and doorways and learn about the legends that have drawn journeyers from around the world to Pantopia,"

Attractions including Scorpion, Phoenix, Bush Flyers, Desert Runners and the Kiddie Train will remain in the area.
