Fearless. That's what you better be to step up to this floorless and fast thriller. Named for a mythical beast with the strength of a lion and the speed of an eagle, once you look this ride in the eye, you'll find what it means to be brave.

After you’re taken 205 feet into the air, the Griffon mercilessly eases you over the edge.

And stops.

For a brief moment, you find yourself looking down--straight down--at the ground below as you're suspended above it.

Then down you plunge 90 degrees straight toward the ground at racing speeds faster than 70 miles per hour.

And that's only the beginning …

Minimum Height Requirement
Griffon 54"


Another fine B&m coaster. It is a bunch of fun after the drop (but it is extremely easy to be caught off guard by the huge dive). Extremely recommended
This is my favorite coaster in the park. A large dive coaster from B&M. The first hill is a winner. When it reaches the top, it pauses before it drops you almost vertical on a 90 degree angel. A super smooth ride that is quick and exciting.
Thrilling and very smooth love this ride !! 10/10
My favorite ride in Busch Gardens!! The front is required when riding this beast! When you drop, you fall and feel some major airtime! After the drop are two beautiful immelman, and fun second drop! I love every bit of this ride! -10
