Florida's Tallest Launch Coaster Opens Tomorrow

inline imageJust in time for the Easter weekend, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay is officially opening Tigris, a triple-launch steel roller coaster, tomorrow, Friday 19 April, 2019. The new attraction is Floridas tallest launch coaster and the ninth coaster in the parks collection, solidifying Busch Gardens Tampa Bay as Floridas thrill ride leader.

"We are proud of the legacy weve built as we have welcomed millions of thrill-seekers from around the world to the Tampa Bay area," said Stewart Clark, President of Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. "Tigris is the perfect addition to our unrivaled collection of adrenaline-pumping attractions."

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, 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 worlds largest and most powerful cat the tiger.

Tigris joins a top-rated list of favourites for coaster enthusiasts, including Cheetah Hunt, the parks longest coaster; SheiKra, a 200-foot tall floorless dive coaster; Falcons Fury, a 335-foot freestanding drop tower; Montu, an inverted coaster; Kumba, and Cobras Curse to name a few.
