Get ready to be propelled through twists, daring drops, a skyward surge that is 150 feet high, and an exciting inverted heartline roll!
With the addition of the new ride, Cobra’s Curse®, Busch Gardens takes thrills for the whole family to a whole new level! The riders of this one-of-a-kind family spin coaster are whisked away on a whirlwind of fun and excitement as they investigate a mysterious Egyptian archaeological dig as they travel around the track. After ascending in a vertical lift that works just like an elevator, riders will be confronted by a snake icon that is eighty feet in length before continuing their journey across the Serengeti Plain.
Iron Gwazi will open for business in March of 2022: In layman’s terms, the Iron Gwazi will be a monstrous roller coaster that will set new records for height, speed, and inclines across the globe. It will be the tallest hybrid coaster in North America. Iron Gwazi is the fastest ride in Florida, with a top speed of 76 miles per hour, 12 air-time features, and three full inversions.
