Not sure if you’re going to be able to ride Falcon’s Fury when it open next month? Busch Gardens Tampa released a point-of-view video today that will either make you say, “Oh yeah, I can do that” or “No way are you getting me on that!”. Take a look and see what you say.

Falcon’s Fury is a drop ride with a twist, literally. The ride slowly takes you up to about 335 feet, offering a great view of not only Busch Gardens, but all of Tampa.

If you ride, don’t expect it to be that quiet of a drop. You’ll most likely hear plenty of screams, if you’re not screaming too loud to drown them out.

No worries if you decide the video was enough for you. Falcon’s Fury is located in a newly remodeled area of the park called Pantopia. Here you’ll find new entertainment, shops, restaurants and more.

Falcon’s Fury was supposed to open on May 1, 2014, but that date may have to be pushed back further into May. But the other areas of Pantopia will open on time. Stay tuned. We will have a first-hand report of our experience riding Falcon’s Fury on “Orlando Attractions Magazine – The Show” just as soon as we’re able to ride, and draw straws on who has to ride.
