Busch Gardens Tampa Bay is getting ready to open a brand new roller coaster called Tigris to their park! The roller coaster, which is a triple-launch coaster, is Florida’s tallest launch coaster and the ninth coaster in the park’s collection, solidifying Busch Gardens Tampa Bay as Florida’s thrill ride leader.

Tigris will take you through twists, turns, and loops, both forwards and backwards, and “a 150-foot skyward surge, and an inverted heartline roll, reaching a top speed of more than 60 miles per hour.”

The ride joins the already exciting list of attractions that Busch Gardens Tampa Bay offers, including Cheetah Hunt, SheiKra, Falcon’s Fury, Montu, Kumba, and Cobra’s Curse.

Tigris will open at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay on April 19.

You can check out Busch Garden’s website for ticketing options, including an annual pass.
