The Tigers in the Golden Kingdom

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I honestly didn't go to the park much around the time the Golden Kingdom just opened but I do remember the tigers in their habitat. It was a pretty elaborate habitat so I was curious as to why they removed the tigers.

 

My boyfriend told me that his friend (who worked at fright fest the year the tigers got taken out) said they just randomly took away the tigers one day to the next, nothing said.

 

I was wondering if anyone knew about that? and like I said, I didn't really go to the park around this time so please correct me if I'm incorrect about anything. Thank you :)

I asked about that myself back in 2011 and was told that the tiger show was intended to be temporary,and were moved to the Safari to get more people out to that section.Personally I greatly miss the "face-to-face" aspect of the tiger show&exhibit and wish they would bring it back-unless they want to use it for PANDAS :TwoCents: !!

There was an issue with the tiger training staff which result in their termination from the park. The tigers were moved to the Safari rather than replace the training staff (which would have taken years to do).

I guess I misunderstood-but I still think the exhibit space is better suited for a larger species,like gorillas.

Plans fell through.....maps were made before it was a 100% go which caused 'false advertising' as you can call it.

 

They're still on property though and can be seen via bizarro or VIP safari tour.
