In spring 2014 Busch Gardens Tampa is taking guests’ experiences to new heights with Falcon’s Fury™, the first drop tower of its kind in the world. Falcon’s Fury will stand at 335 feet. Like its bird of prey namesake, riders will pivot 90 degrees in midair to a face-down dive position and take riders soaring 60 mph straight down.
