Hey Thrill Seekers,
So we now have an opening date for Tigris – the newest coaster opening at Busch Gardens Tampa…
That’s right, Tigris is opening in two weeks time!! If you’ve been living under a rock here’s everything you need to know about Busch Gardens new triple launch coaster..
Tigris is Florida’s tallest launch coaster and 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, reaching a top speed of 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.
Tigris joins a top-rated list of favourites for coaster enthusiasts, including Cheetah Hunt, the park’s longest coaster, SheiKra, a 200-foot tall floorless dive coaster, Falcon’s Fury, a 335-foot freestanding drop tower, Montu, an inverted coaster, Kumba, and Cobra’s Curse, to name a few.
Who can’t wait to ride this beast?! (hint.. MEEE!!)
Busch Gardens is one of my favourite parks as well as the AMAZING coasters Busch Gardens offers 300 acres of fascinating attractions based on exotic explorations around the world. Busch Gardens is a unique blend of thrilling rides, one of the country’s premier zoos with thousands of animals representing more than 200 species, and live shows and events. If you’re thinking about visiting this ultimate thrill seeker park you’d be best of with either a 3 park SeaWorld ticket or Discovery Cove Ultimate package both include free parking and if you don’t have a car then no need to worry they also include a free shuttle to and from Busch Gardens!
