Busch Gardens’ New Roller Coaster Opening Spring 2019
When Tigris launches this spring, it’ll be Florida’s tallest launch coaster.
The bright orange coaster is 150 feet tall and will launch riders about 60 feet up at about 60 miles per hour. Tigris’ 1,800 feet of steel track is designed to mimic the agility of an actual tiger.
Stewart Clark, president of Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and Adventure Island, said the coaster will not only mimic the speed and movement of a tiger but also showcase messages about the importance of tigers in the world. According to Channel 10 News.
Tigris will be the eighth thrill ride at Busch Gardens, strengthening the park’s nickname of Florida’s roller coaster king.
