Florida's Tallest Launch Coaster, Tigris, UnveiledSeptember 13, 2018
Yesterday we had an exciting milestone to share with you straight from Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. FLORIDA’S TALLEST LAUNCH COASTER, called Tigris, is coming in Spring 2019.
With more than 1,800 feet of steel track and a 150-foot rush, Tigris is an original thrill ride experience featuring lots of twists, stomach turning drops, forward and backward motions, and fast speeds of over 60 miles per hour. Busch Gardens continues to reign as “Florida’s roller coaster capital.”
“Busch Gardens has the most roller coasters of any theme park in Florida” said the Tampa Bay Times in an article they wrote about the big reveal. “We like to have a portfolio for every member of the family, but with Tigris, it will only be the bravest members,” commented Busch Gardens president Stewart Clark.
We wanted to share this photo of the triple-launch steel roller coaster!
Tigris has certainly made a big splash ahead of our park’s 60th birthday next year. Are you ready to #TakeOnTigris?
