The anticipation of what was going to be coming to Busch Gardens Tampa has been accumulating for months. The park has been throwing out hint after hint and most amusement park lovers and enthusiasts were expecting a tower type ride like the one that opened in Williamsburg. Today Busch Gardens in Tampa announced the arrival of Falcon's Fury. Guests are in for a treat as it will be the first of its kind drop tower. The drop tower will be the tallest freestanding tower ride in North America.
According to the release, the park's new thrill ride is supposed to mimic a falcon swooping down at massive speeds to prey on some small animal for its meal. The ride will raise you over 300 feet and then what happens next is something that will excite even the bravest of enthusiasts. The tower train will then tilt 90 degrees where you will be face down toward the ground. The train will then drop and you will free fall toward earth at 60 MPH in a death defying position. The ride is expected to be built this off-season and be open for 2014 season. The ride will be located in the Timbuktu region
