Next up I was really excited to ride Tempesto! With Tigris opening April 19th to the public I now know what to expect, but I can’t wait to see the station theming and the Tampa scenery at the top!

Up next on my agenda was Apollos Chariot since they are so close! I was surprised Apollo’s chariot was partially painted, and it looks fantastic but it was only to a certain point. I wonder if they will finish it throughout the season? Below you can see a front row POV, Enjoy!

After marathoning apollos chariot (because how can you not!) we made our way over to griffon. I love dive coasters so this was one of my favorite rides of the day! Below you can see a front row POV of the Griffon at Busch Gardens Williamsburg.

Up next was one of my favorite wooden coasters manufactured by Great Coasters Inc.: Invadr. Without further ado
and you know I had to save the best for last… Verbolten. This amazing double launch coaster features a drop track, can you survive the forest? Watch below and find out!

By the time we got all of the rides done it was time to get on the road straight to carowinds. Next time I hope to spend more time to look at all the things they have to do, but for my wife’s first time she had a blast.
