Busch Gardens Further Postpones The Opening Of Falcon's Fury
Below is an official statement from Busch Gardens Tampa expressing the current status of their newest thrill ride, Falcon's Fury.
Busch Gardens’ new thrill ride Falcon’s Fury includes first-of-its kind design elements, systems and parts. Due to a delay in the fabrication of key component parts, neither the manufacturer nor Busch Gardens are able to complete the lengthy testing processes needed to open the ride to the public. The safety of our guests and team members remains Busch Gardens’ top priority and none of these delays involve safety systems. The ride has been safely operated in the initial stages of the testing process, and all other elements of the park’s newest re-imagined land Pantopia are now open to guests. Busch Gardens will provide updates on the ride opening as events warrant. We are committed to delivering world-class thrills and the best possible ride experience, and we look forward to the launch of Falcon’s Fury, North America’s tallest freestanding drop tower, later this summer.
While the extended delay in the opening of Falcon's Fury may disappoint many, please be reminded that a world class theme park such as Busch Gardens Tampa puts guest safety and comfort before all else. Unforeseen circumstances cant be avoided and can only be resolved as time goes on. All it takes is patience, and before you know it, you'll be soaring through the sky on Busch Gardens' newest thrill ride, Falcon's Fury!
