Busch Gardens Tampa Bay brings a new level of excitement with FLORIDA’S TALLEST LAUNCH COASTER to open spring 2019
Busch Gardens Tampa Bay is adding a new roller coaster to its fleet, the theme park announced on Wednesday. The “Tigris” is a triple-launch steel roller coaster and will be Florida’s tallest launch coaster, according to the park.
An innovative experience, Tigris will catapult riders through an exhilarating array of looping twists with forward and backward motion, breath-taking drops, a 150-foot skyward surge, and an inverted heartline roll, all at more than 60 miles per hour. Tigris will race riders along more than 1,800 feet of steel track designed to mimic the awe-inspiring agility of the world’s largest and most powerful cat –the tiger.
To further solidify Busch Gardens reign as Florida’s thrill ride leader, more news is on the horizon – a second new thrill ride will be coming to the Gwazi area of the park in 2020.
