Cobra's Curse Track Now On Site at Busch Gardens Tampa

© Busch Gardens Tampa
2016 will see a wide variety of coaster types open in the U.S., and one of my most anticipated new rides in the family segment is Cobra's Curse at Busch Gardens Tampa.  The ride will combine unique track elements, theming, and the appeal of a family spinning coaster into one attraction in the park's Egypt section.

The park has been hard at work on the ride for a while now, preparing the land by grading for several below ground level elements, and also placing foundations around the site.  Now the theme park has shared the above image of the ride's track starting to be delivered to the park.  Cobra's Curse will be manufactured by Mack Rides, utilizing the designer's triangular shaped track in a nice blue/green color.

I would expect to see a new one soon, but the last update from the park showed the massive footers that were being built.  With over a month's time passed, and track now on site, the park will have plenty to update us all on with a new entry.

I never got a 100% clear idea of this coaster's full layout, which leaves some of the ride as a surprise that I'm honestly enjoying.  Can't wait to see track start to go up!
