As Busch Gardens Tampa Bay enthusiasts watch the park grow with the arrival of its newest coaster, there's more in store from the theme park to attract larger crowds.

A project codenamed “Project Jethro” has plans filed with the Southwest Florida Water Management District for a 1.83-acre project area involving demolition, grading and drainage work around where the former Rhino Rally queue once stood.

The existing area consists of concrete walk/attraction areas and landscape areas.

New experiences and rides are part of parent company SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment's strategy to help drive revenue and attendance at its parks.
