Falcon's Fury Pieces Arrive at Busch Gardens Tampa

By: Carrie McLaren


Do you love thrills and wild rides? This spring, Busch Gardens Tampa is taking thrill rides to new heights with Falcon’s Fury

With North America’s tallest freestanding drop tower at 335 feet, Falcon’s Fury will be the first of its kind in the country.  Like its namesake, riders will pivot 90 degrees in midair to a face-down dive position. In an instant, riders will plunge 60 mph at 3.5 Gs straight down with speed and power they’ve likely never before experienced.  

Pieces of the new tower have been arriving from several countries in Europe, including Slovakia, Switzerland and Germany. The vertical tower is comprised of nine sections, each up to 20 feet in diameter and weighing up to 95 tons, or 190,000 pounds.

Are you excited to go on this new ride?
