Hold onto your seat: The Cobra's Curse is coming to Busch Gardens Tampa.
Park officials announced this morning that they'll open Tampa Bay's newest thrill ride in 2016.
The Cobra's Curse will lift riders 70 feet in the air to start, then launch them out over the Serengeti Plain spinning all the while.
“This isn’t your ordinary spin coaster. In true Busch Gardens style, we’re putting a twist on this attraction and taking riders on an unforgettable and exciting journey,” said Jim Dean, president of Busch Gardens Tampa, at this morning's announcement. "We know it’s an attraction that guests from across the globe will enjoy. Cobra’s Curse will even further solidify Busch Gardens as Florida’s thrill leader."
The ride will be built in the Egypt section of the park, home to its iconic Montu coaster as well.
