Falcon’s Fury Officially Opens
The wait is over for those waiting to challenge Falcon’s Fury, North America’s tallest freestanding drop tower. The Busch Gardens Tampa record-breaker officially opened today after weeks of preview rides.
“We know guests from around the world have been waiting to experience this one-of-a-kind thrill ride, and we are excited to officially invite those guests to ride Falcon’s Fury,” said Park President Jim Dean.
Falcon’s Fury stands at 335 feet and takes riders soaring 60mph straight down. At the ride’s highest point Busch Gardens has added an element of surprise; like its bird of prey namesake, riders pivot 90 degrees in midair to a face-down dive position. An instant later, riders plunge with speed and power that they’ve never experienced before.
