– Busch Gardens Tampa Bay announced today that the highly anticipated opening of the parks newest attraction, Cobra’s Curse will be officially
open Friday, June 17.
Cobra’s Curse Striking Facts:
• One-of-a-kind spin coaster features a menacing 30,000-pound snake king icon and a 70-foot vertical lift that will take riders within inches of its 3 foot-wide eyes and 4-foot-long fangs.
• During the three-and-a-half-minute ride, the coaster trains speed along at 40 mph down 2,100 feet of serpentine-like track, travelling backward, forward and then spinning freely.
• Guests will experience a new spin with each ride. Each train spins randomly, with frequency and direction determined by the rider weight distribution.
• The ride’s air-conditioned queue naturally fuels guests’ adrenaline with an immersive themed experience and a state-of-the-art snake exhibit featuring four exotic snake species including some of the world’s most feared and often misunderstood, vipers.
• Riders must be 48 inches to ride, or 42 inches with a parent or guardian.
