After the success of a similar attraction at Water Country U.S.A. in 2014, Tampa's Adventure Island has announced the addition of Colossal Curl in 2015.

“We’re excited to continue in our tradition of offering thrilling rides, and slides, at Adventure Island and Busch Gardens Tampa,” said Park President Jim Dean.
The ride stands nearly 70 feet high and has 560 feet of slide. A "hybrid" attraction, Colossal Curl combines a tornado funnel section with a high speed drop into a vertical wave wall. The attraction will be located in the center of Adventure Island near Mango Joe's Cafe, and will replace the Gulf Scream slide.
Adventure Island water park is located next to Busch Gardens Tampa, and is a part of the SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment family.
