Fastest Hybrid Roller Coaster Coming To Tampa
A roller coaster that will be more than 200 feet will open at a Tampa Bay theme park in 2020.
Busch Gardens Tampa Bay said their new ride will be the tallest, fastest and steepest hybrid coaster in THE WORLD.
That is pretty impressive.
Dont get this coaster confused with the ride Busch Gardens Tampa Bay is opening Spring 2019, Tigiris. This is a whole new thing!
According to News 6 Orlando (to get a rough estimate of how tall and fast the roller coaster will be) the hybrid roller coaster Steel Vengeance at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio, stands at 205 feet and reaches speeds of 74 mph.
Busch Gardens Tampa Bay is currently celebrating their 60th Anniversary and they have quite a bit going on. All year long they are giving away free beer, opening a new ride named Tigris and much more! During the 60th Anniversary Celebration Kickoff they also announced this new coaster that will be opened in 2020.
I’m interested to see the finished project.
Over the last 60 years, we’ve made a LOT of history... & we’re not done yet. This spring, Tigris will debut as Florida’s tallest launch coaster. In 2020, Busch Gardens will be home to North America’s tallest hybrid, & the fastest, steepest hybrid coaster in the world. #2020Rising pic.twitter.com/MWfMQpEh9Q— Busch Gardens Tampa Bay (@BuschGardens) March 1, 2019
