TAMPA BAY, FL
Coaster fans, get ready to pounce. The tiger-themed triple-launch steel roller coaster Tigris will open on April 19, Busch Gardens announced on Thursday.
It’s Florida’s tallest launch coaster and the ninth coaster in the park, the most of any theme park in the state. At a towering 150 feet, Tigris occupies a fairly compact space in the Stanleyville area of the Tampa theme park.
Visitors to Busch Gardens in the next two weeks should keep a close eye on Tigris and check Twitter since theme parks often open up new attractions for unannounced test runs called soft openings.
