Just in time for Easter weekend, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay has officially opened Tigris, a triple -launch steel coaster.
Now Florida’s tallest launch coaster, this is the ninth coaster to join the park’s collection.
“We are proud of the legacy we’ve built as we have welcomed millions of thrill-seekers form around the world to the Tampa Bay area,” said Stewart Clark, president of Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and Adventure Island. “Tigris is the perfect addition to our unrivaled collection of adrenaline-pumping attractions.”
Tigris will take riders through a series of looping twists with forward and backward motion, drops, a 150-foot surge skyward, and an inverted heartland roll, with speeds of more than 60 miles per hour. Riders will race along over 1,800 feet of steel track that’s designed to emulate the agility of a tiger.
Pass Members can have their own exclusive time to experience Tigris, thanks to reserved ride times from 8-10 a.m. on May 4-5 and 11-12. Riders can enjoy the attraction two hours before the park opens and receive a reusable Tigris shopping bag as a gift. You can learn more about this offering here.
