Cobra’s Curse! A New Ride In 2016

Florida’s thrill leader, Busch Gardens Tampa, puts a SPIN on family thrills with a new ride.

This isn’t your ordinary roller coaster. This one-of-a-kind family Spin Coaster takes riders on a whirlwind of family fun and an adventure of exciting explorations. After ascending on a vertical lift, just like an elevator, riders will come face-to-face with an 80-foot snake icon and trek over the park’s Serengeti Plain.

This family-friendly ride puts guests in the middle of a mysterious Egyptian archeological excavation that takes them on the ride of their life.


Did you notice the “outward-banked turn” that puts riders perilously close to the jaws of the monstrous, 80-foot-tall statue of the snake king Venymyss?



Wondering what that tower is? Each train is lifted vertically, to a height of 70 feet!

During the three-and-a-half-minute ride, the coaster trains speed along at 40 mph, spinning backward, forward and then freely.

Each train spins randomly, with frequency and direction determined by the rider weight distribution
