Cobra’s Curse is now open at Busch Gardens Tampa! It’s the only spinning coaster like it with one of a kind effects. First you will be lifted in front of a giant snake statue making your way to the top of the tower at 66 foot. The first part of the ride the trains are aligned so all the passengers face forward while they drop down and make their way through twists and turns. Midcourse the cars are then turned by 180 degrees leading the cars a short way to the next lift. But with the third part of the ride everything goes crazy: the cars are unlocked and the gondolas can spin freely depending on their load distribution.
