All about their new ride
Now that the latest ride has opened at Busch Gardens, you’re going to want to pay a visit to this favorite Tampa Bay attraction. Cobra’s Curse is the newest addition to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, featuring a three-and-a-half minute long coaster ride with unique twists and turns.
Expect to ride 40 miles per hour down a 2,100 feet track, while also experiencing spinning freely, backward travel, and forward travel. The ride just debuted on June 17th and immediately stood out for its snake king feature that is terrifying riders each time. Rides will literally ride inches away from the eyes of a 30,000lbs snake king icon through a 70-foot vertical lift, which measure 3-feet wide. The snake’s fangs are present at 4 feet long in size.
Your terrifying ride on the Cobra’s Curse will start you approaching the giant snake, which will make you feel like you are about to enter its deadly bite. After reaching about the halfway point of the ride, your cart will turn to make you finish the ride going backwards. As if that’s not scary enough, riders will then be spun around going backwards on loops and seeing the giant snake at every blink of the eye.
What are people saying about this exciting new thriller? Not only do they love the coasters at this location, but this new addition is a great new option. It’s offering great new twists, more quality, and the unique and unusual way to ride a coaster.
After starting off going forward, then shifting backward, then going around in a sort of Tilt-A-Whirl and roller coaster combo, you don’t know where you are anymore. You’ll love going up the lift hill like an elevator and the built-in, real, live snake display while feeling all out-of-control the whole time.
