(Tampa Bay Geeks) Press Release: Falcon's Fury Finally Opens at Busch Gardens

First Drop Tower of its Kind in the World

Solidifies Park as Floridas Thrill Ride Leader


Tampa, Fla. (Sept. 2, 2014)  After weeks of thrilling lucky guests during a soft open, North Americas tallest freestanding drop tower, Falcons Fury, officially opens today, Sept. 2, at Busch Gardens Tampa.


We know guests from around the world have been waiting to experience this one-of-a-kind thrill ride, and we are excited to officially invite those guests to ride Falcons Fury, said Park President Jim Dean.


Falcons Fury stands at 335 feet and takes riders soaring 60mph straight down. At the rides highest point Busch Gardens has added an element of surprise; like its bird of prey namesake, riders pivot 90 degrees in midair to a face-down dive position. An instant later, riders plunge with speed and power that theyve never experienced before.
