Falcon's Fury Busch Gardens Tampa Falcon Face #FalconFace

With Falcon’s Fury now open at Busch Gardens Tampa, we thought we’d put together a fun video to show off the riders’ Falcon Faces.

Busch Gardens is asking park visitors to post photos of their #FalconFace on social media, basically what they would look like diving through the air face-down from 335 feet in the air. We took our slow motion camera to the park to record guests’ reactions while on the ride.

Hilarious slo-mo faces of fear on world's first face-down drop ride

Falcon’s Fury stands at 335 feet and takes riders soaring 60 mph 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.

To see the #FalconFace of our hosts of Orlando Attractions Magazine: The Show, be sure to watch the Sept. 11, 2014 episode below:
