Not worth it
13 July 2001 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

Akbar is no longer at Busch Gardens Tampa, and that's a good thing, because it really was not worth the wait. Martin Short was funny, but it really was a shame that at one point in his career, such a funny man was stuck doing the movie for a motion simulator ride at a theme park. The ride wasn't fantastic, and with Montu (giant inverted Bolliger & Mabillard roller coaster) right next to it, I would have rather ridden Montu twice than Montu once and Akbar once. If you didn't get to go on this ride, don't worry about it. Travel over to Islands of Adventure, which isn't too far away, or Universal Studios, and ride Spiderman or Back To The Future: The Ride, for GOOD simulators. Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, Virginia, just got a fantastic new simulator, Corkscrew Hill, so maybe Busch Gardens Tampa will follow in its footstep and get something to replace poor old Akbar.
