The Battering Ram - swinging pendulum ship ride at Busch Gardens

The Battering Ram

Pendulum ride

Closed for the Season
This swinging boat ride is a family-friendly thrill!

There aren't many castle walls to break down these days. So we found a better job for this battering ram. This enormous pendulum ride reaches higher as it goes, giving riders a greater sense of sheer weightlessness. With the battles of yesteryear long gone, the only drama you’ll find unfolding here has to do with who gets the best seat.
