Falcon's Fury Going Up at Busch Gardens Tampa

Only four sections have been installed, and Falcon's Fury at Busch Gardens Tampa is already starting to tower over the park!

BGT Fans has new photos of the ride's progress, if you click over to their site you can see the yellow sections starting to reach for the sky.

When complete Falcon's Fury will stand 335 feet tall and the ride carriage will reach in the neighborhood of 300 feet.  At the top the real thrills start even before the drop - that's when the ride's cars tilt 90 degree facing riders down... staring at the ground below as they plunge.

The park has called the new freefall tower the tallest freestanding version in North America - but regardless of height records the seats are what has most fans anxiously awaiting their first drop!
