Tigris Goes Vertical


Tigris at Busch Gardens Tampa has track installed.

Construction has begun for the triple launch coaster opening in 2019 at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. Tigris takes riders through a forward-backward launch cycle, launches them 150-feet in the air, and takes them through a heartline roll. The ride is themed after the most powerful cat on the planet, the Tiger.

Based on past opening dates at Busch Gardens Tampa, we would estimate the opening of Tigris to be during late May. More construction photos can be seen below, courtesy of Busch Gardens:
