Cobra’s Curse Coming to Busch Gardens Tampa

At a theme park known for mixing thrilling attractions with engaging animal exhibits, it’s no surprise Busch Gardens‘ next addition is a hybrid of both. Cobra’s Curse is a one-of-its-kind spinning roller coaster themed to snakes. Located in the Egyptian portion of the park, the ride will put a new twist on Busch Gardens attractions.

If you’re afraid of snakes, beware! You’ll come face-to-face with an 80-foot snake icon during your journey. You’ll also experience a vertical life, forward motion, backwards motion and free spinning as you trek the Serengeti Plain and follow an Egyptian archaeological excavation.

Maximum Height: 70 feet Ride
