Do you dare to TAKE ON TIGRIS at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay? We did!

By Laura Byrne

Hold the lunch. If you are a thrill seeker and dare…get ready to Take on Tigris at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay! Florida’s largest launch roller coaster is now ready to hurl you and roll you at speeds of up to 62 miles per hour. As we said, hold the lunch before you ride.

Tigris marks the 9th roller coaster at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, with a 10th coaster on tap to open next year where Gwazi once stood. The park is not just a thrill ride leader, it’s now a place that truly offers something for every family member!

Let’s talk Tigris by the numbers for moment:

  • 150-feet skyward surge
  • 1,800 feet of track
  • 62 mph max speed
  • 54 inches or taller to ride

Now, let’s talk about what you can expect when you fasten yourself into the harness of Tigris. You’ll be catapulted through looping twists and turns, dropped, inverted into a heartline roll all at speeds topping more than 60 miles per hour. Not for the faint of heart and most definitely for the thrill seeker!

Check out dad volunteer, Chris M of Tampa, as he was among the first to experience Tigris!
