Just in time for the holiday weekend, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay will officially open Tigris, tomorrow, Friday, April 19, 2019. The new attraction is a triple-launch steel roller coaster 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 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 world’s largest and most powerful cat –the tiger.
Tigris joins a top-rated list of favorites for us coaster enthusiasts, including Cheetah Hunt (the park’s longest coaster) SheiKra (a 200-foot tall floorless dive coaster) Falcon’s Fury (a 335-foot freestanding drop tower) Montu (an inverted coaster) Kumba, and Cobra’s Curse, to name a few. Get Ready to #TakeonTigris
I hope you enjoyed that awesome front row ride of Tigris the newest addition to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. Tigris was the perfect addition to Stanleyville because it brought life to an area of the park that was not forgotten but just temporarily used. So for you, Howl-o-Scream fans out there who were worried about the disappearance of the black spot; as of now will remain part of the haunt attractions! Below you can see a front-facing pov taking on the Tigris!
