Calling all thrill seekers! Busch Gardens announced Tuesday, October 11 that they plan to open a new swing ride in spring 2023. Although an official date has not been announced, fans can look forward to “the world’s tallest and fastest ride of its kind.”

The new attraction called the Serengeti Flyer is going to be a high-thrilled addition to the park. Guests will be seated back-to-back in two gondolas that hold 40 people. The swing will take riders up 135 feet, and reach speeds of 68 mph.

“Serengeti Flyer’s thrilling ride experience is bound to provide riders with a pulse-pounding encounter that can only be found at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay,” said Neal Thurman, Park President of Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. The park is thrilled to add to their world-class list of attractions. In case you missed it, Iron Gwazi won the Best New Roller Coaster in 2022.
