If you've been wondering more about Busch Gardens new roller coaster Cobra's Curse, then you're not alone. At this year's International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions, the Tampa-based theme park dished about all the twist and turns we can expect with this unique spinning coaster.
Riders kick the coaster off by climbing 70-feet to the head of snake king Venymyss, who puts a curse on the vehicle and that's when things get dizzy. About halfway through the ride the vehicle will rotate backwards, then release into full free spin for the last section.
With 2,100-feet of track to get through, riders get to experience the curse of Venymyss for a staggering 3.5 minutes. Although it's not the fastest gun in the West— with speeds reaching 40 mph— the variation of forward to backward motions are sure to make up for lost speed.
