The wait is almost over. Tigris, Busch Gardens’ triple-launch steel roller coaster, will open on Friday, April 19, 2019. It’s Florida’s tallest launch coaster and the ninth coaster in the park’s collection.
From Busch Gardens: “Tigris will catapult riders through an exhilarating array of looping twists with forward and backward motion, breath-taking drops, a 150-foot skyward surge, and an inverted heartline roll, reaching a top speed of more than 60 miles per hour. Tigris will race riders along more than 1,800 feet of steel track designed to mimic the awe-inspiring agility of the world’s largest and most powerful cat –the tiger.”
