FALCON’S FURY OFFICIALLY OPENS
First Drop Tower of its Kind in the World
Solidifies Park as Florida’s Thrill Ride Leader
Tampa, Fla. (Sept. 2, 2014) – After weeks of thrilling lucky guests during a “soft open,” North America’s tallest freestanding drop tower, Falcon’s Fury™, officially opens today, Sept. 2, at Busch Gardens® Tampa.
“We know guests from around the world have been waiting to experience this one-of-a-kind thrill ride, and we are excited to officially invite those guests to ride Falcon’s Fury,” said Park President Jim Dean.
Falcon’s Fury stands at 335 feet and takes riders soaring 60mph straight down. At the ride’s highest point Busch Gardens has added an element of surprise; like its bird of prey namesake, riders pivot 90 degrees in midair to a face-down dive position. An instant later, riders plunge with speed and power that they’ve never experienced before.
