Busch Gardens Tampa has new skyline: Falcon's Fury surpasses 300 feet

See also

Falcon's Fury, the new record-breaking drop tower going in at Busch Gardens Tampa, has reached a milestone: it's surpassed 300 feet on the way to its total height of 335 feet. You can see the latest progress in the photo farther down on this page. If you dare challenge it, you'll plummet back down to earth face first after an unmatched aerial view of the Tampa area.

To put things into perspective, Falcon's Fury will be taller than SheiKra, Cheetah Hunt, and Air Grover combined. You can learn more about the design and construction process by watching the video accompanying this article.

As you'll see in the video, the addition of Falcon's Fury is just one part of an overall Busch Gardens Tampa project that's reimagining the Timbuktu area and transforming it into Pantopia. Look for new shopping options, as well as a new bakery and snack offerings.
