Falcon's Fury reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Falcon's Fury, a drop ride at Busch Gardens Tampa.
Written by Robert Niles
Opened in late summer 2014, Falcon's Fury is a 335-foot-tall drop ride, with a unique feature. Once you reach the top, your seat rotates forward, placing you face-down for your plunge back to the ground.
Wow! I had high expectations going into this ride but it still managed to blow me away! A resident of Tampa Florida and a season pass holder of Busch Gardens, I have seen Falcon's Fury go through all its stages of construction and have been eagerly awaiting the opening of the ride. It did not disappoint! The climb to the top of the tower is swift, tense, and provides stunning views of Busch Gardens and the surrounding area. Once at the top, the seats lean forward so that you are facing the ground. This is an incredible feature that makes this one of the best rides in the park! The ride vehicle then holds you at the top of the tower for a few seconds before dropping you, face first, at a tremendous speed. In my opinion, this ride is second only to Montu at Busch Gardens Tampa and is an experience that should not be missed! 10/10 - Brendan Sutton
Great ride, looks much worse than it feels when you do it. - Tony Duda
