Falcon's Fury to drop in Spring 2014 at Busch Gardens Tampa, as SeaWorld announces 50th anniversary celebrations
Written by Robert Niles
Busch Gardens Tampa this morning announced its new attraction for Spring 2014: Falcon's Fury, a 335-foot drop ride with a unique element -- you'll drop face-first, instead of in a traditional seated position.

The idea is that you're diving toward the Earth like a bird of prey. Here's a promotional video from the park, with more details about the ride:
In addition, Busch Gardens' sister parks over at SeaWorld today announced a "Sea of Surprises" promotion for the chain's 50th anniversary. (SeaWorld's original park, SeaWorld San Diego, opened in 1964.) The promotion starts in March 2014 and will run for 18 months, through the end of summer 2015.
Starting March 21, 2014, we invite guests to join us as we celebrate with new interactive experiences, new shows and daily entertainment, more up-close animal encounters throughout the park, and a Surprise Squad treating guests with prizes every day.
The promotions will run at all three SeaWorld parks -- San Diego, Orlando and San Antonio.
