Busch Gardens Tampa Bay has announced that it will be unveiling a new land – named PANTOPIA – in Spring 2014!
The fully-remodelled area – currently known as Timbuktu – will be launched to coincide with the new Falcons Fury ride, which will be North Americas tallest freestanding drop tower.
Falcons Fury – a one-of-a-kind Drop Tower
At 335ft tall, Falcons Fury will be the centrepiece of Pantopia and is set to attract guests from across the world with its one-of-a-kind experience..
On reaching its highest point, the ride adds an element of suspense as riders are pivoted 90 in midair to a face-down position, before plummeting straight down at speeds of 60mph and 3.5 Gs – just like a falcon diving for its prey.
Pantopia – a reimagined land
The idea behind Pantopia is inspired by centuries of world travellers and offers something for every member of the family, with elaborately-jewelled theming, thrilling rides and attractions, exciting entertainment, shopping, a renovated indoor theatre and more.
Busch Gardens Park President Jim Dean said that Pantopia will celebrate the spirit of animals, welcome adventurers from the four corners of the earth, explore ancient lore and display fantastic architecture.
