Cobra's Curse | New for Busch Gardens Tampa Mack spinning coaster

Florida’s thrill leader, Busch Gardens® Tampa, puts a new SPIN on family thrills in 2016 with Cobra's Curse!


This isn’t your ordinary spin 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.

Image
Ride capacity: 8 trains with 2 cars per train. Riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 8 riders per train.1,000 riders per hour
Length: 2,100 ft
Height: 70 ft
Speed: 40 mph
Special elements: Elevator Lift

Personally a great design and I really wish I could go see this and ride it next year. I really like the different cars used in this with the wild mouse styled ones and not the traditional styled trains on the other Mack spinners.

Interesting. Looks like it should be perfect for the families with slightly older children in the gap phase between usual kids rides and the big thrill rides.

I am really curious to how these trains will work and look, but from the concept art and the video it does look like it should be a really fun new experience for a family audience.

Looks good! Should fit in perfectly with the park and with good theming, it could be fantastic!

I think this is going to be one of the coasters to watchout for in 2016, considering it has 8 trains, I am currious if their is going to be an inside coaster element before exiting onto the elevator lift.

Eclipse, I'm not sure on how well the trains will be themed but I presume the trains will work just like normal spinning coaster trains with each car being built around some sort of disk that would freely spin.
