Get ready to snake your way through Busch Gardens® Tampa Bay’s ultimate family roller coaster! The first experience on this ride is a lift that is one of a kind! This vertical lift functions in a similar way to an outdoor elevator and takes riders up in their coaster car to put them face- to-fang with the 80-foot Snake King.
During the three-and-a-half-minute ride, the coaster trains speed along at 40 mph down 2,100 feet of serpentine-like track, travelling backward, forward and then spinning freely. Guests will experience a new spin with each ride. Each train spins randomly, with frequency and direction determined by the rider weight distribution.
The air-conditioned queue line features an exhibit with live snakes, interactive elements and projection mapping technology to tell the story of the Snake King.
Riders must be 48 inches to ride, or 42 inches with a parent or guardian. Let's try it!
