Falcon's Fury Will Create Screams and Scares at Busch Gardens This Spring
February 7, 2014 at 12:43 PM
When it comes to the offerings at theme parks we’re usually most interested in the big, bad roller coasters. A ride that goes up in the air and drops you back to the ground usually isn't our thing, but we’ve got to say the thing Busch Gardens has planned kind of has us intrigued.
Falcon's Fury is part of the 2014 plans for the theme park down in Tampa, and what makes it unique when compared to other drop tower type rides is its seating configuration. Sure the thing rises to well over 300-feet—like 335-feet to be exact—but when the seating contraption reaches the top is when the fun begins.
The ride rotates passengers towards the ground—as in face first—and then the action takes place. It sounds like you’ll be regretting that fried food lunch, as the ride drops you at speeds of up to 60mph. Things only take like five seconds or so, but we’re kind of thinking that it will feel like hours.
Park officials are promising “speed, power and adrenaline like you’ve never experienced before,” and it can all be yours when things open up this spring. Regular admission for one-day of fun start at around $82 per person, but there are discounts, deals, and annual pass options to bring things down a more affordable level.
