NEW: Thrill ride Serengeti Flyer is flying into Busch Gardens next spring

An amazing new thrill ride is coming to Florida’s Busch Gardens. Serengeti Flyer will be the tallest and fastest swing ride in the world – reaching heights of 135ft and speeds of 68mph.

The attraction will open at the Tampa Bay theme park and zoo in spring next year. With each swing, riders will soar higher and higher above Busch Gardens’ 65-acre Serengeti Plain while experiencing multiple negative-G moments before plunging back toward the earth.

Serengeti Flyer will feature twin duelling arms that soar progressively higher reaching speeds of 68 mph and a maximum height of 135ft at the ride’s peak. Riders will be seated back-to-back in rows of 10 across two gondolas, allowing 40 to board at once.

Neal Thurman, park president, said: “Serengeti Flyer’s thrilling ride experience is bound to provide riders with a pulse-pounding encounter that can only be found at Busch Gardens. We believe it will be the perfect high-thrill addition to our world-class portfolio of attractions including Iron Gwazi, the Golden Ticket Award Winner for the Best New Roller Coaster in 2022.”
