Busch Gardens Tampa Announces Unique Cobra Coaster Ride For 2016

There have been theme park ride announcements coming nearly everyday lately. It says a great deal about the visitors that are flocking to the theme parks in record numbers. One of the new rides is coming to Busch Gardens Tampa in 2016. It’s a new family thrill ride; a spin coaster to be exact. This unique ride will be the only one in the world that features a vertical lift that takes riders on an exploration adventure.

If you are familiar with Busch Gardens Tampa, it will be located in the Egypt area of the park where it will bring family explorers face-to-face with an 80-foot snake icon. It will also give a great view over the park’s Serengeti Plain and later discover the mysteries of an old Egyptian archeological excavation.


“This isn’t your ordinary spin coaster. In true Busch Gardens style, we’re putting a twist on this attraction and taking riders on an unforgettable and exciting journey,” said Busch Gardens Park President Jim Dean.

“The addition of a family spin coaster complements the selection of thrill rides Busch Gardens offers, and we know it’s an attraction that guests from across the globe will enjoy,” Dean said. “We continue to find new and exciting ways to offer thrills for the entire family, and we know Cobra’s Curse will even further solidify Busch Gardens as Florida’s thrill leader.”

Sounds like a great addition to the park. We’ll can’t wait to try Cobra’s Curse when the ride opens!
