Tigris ~ Busch Gardens Tampa 2019 and News for 2020!

Today we learned a 3rd Premier Skyrocket II will join the SEAS parks family and will be called Tigris! Two other models exist in the chain, Tempesto at Busch Gardens Williamsburg and Electric Eel at SeaWorld San Diego.

This forward and backward launching coaster will surge riders 150 feet in the air making it the tallest launching coaster in Florida with speeds at 60 mph:


1,800 feet of track completes the track  for Tigris and adds to the already solid collection of coasters at Busch Gardens Tampa:

But wait, there’s more! Also during today’s announcement event the park shared exciting details of a hybrid makeover experience coming to the park’s former racing wooden coasters: Gwazi. While a name or manufacturer has not yet been announced we can all but confirm this is the RMC make-over that has long been rumored! Exciting times are ahead for the SEAS parks and we’ll share all of that soon! 

Be sure to stay tuned to our social pages for more on this and other projects coming to other parks very soon!

So either their word choice is incorrect or the topper track is what’s happening. As of now, expected to open April 2020 so expect work to begin very soon!  […]
