Cobra’s Curse Coaster Opening Next Year At Busch Gardens

Stay tuned in to our local news coverage: Listen to 90.7 WMFE on your FM or HD radio, the WMFE mobile app or your smart speaker — say “Alexa, play NPR” and you’ll be connected.

SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment had its second big announcement of the week. Wednesday we heard about Mako, a shark-themed coaster coming to Orlando. Thursday, SeaWorld announced a spinning family coaster, Cobra’s Curse, for its Busch Gardens, Tampa park.

Senior director of rides and engineering, Mike Denninger, says the ride will start with a vertical lift and end with a twist.

“We release the locking and you are free to spin so the train cars will actually physically spin freely as the train moves around the track. It’s forward, backward and free spinning,” said Denninger.

Cobra’s Curse opens next year in the Egypt section of the park.
