Busch Gardens Tampa announced this morning that the park's new face-down drop ride will open to the public on May 1.

The media preview day is April 23, and Theme Park Insider will be there to cover.

Who's planning to ride Falcon's Fury this summer?

I sure hope they can get this thing up and running smoothly. The last time Busch did a special type of drop tower, things...err didn't go so well. Given the complexity of the new seats, tests of all kinds are a huge must with only a few weeks to go.

I live in Tampa, only 30-45 minutes away from BGT. I can't wait to see how this looks, and if you really face straight down.
