I understand the appeal of circuit launch coasters to park operators. They're cheap. They're cool looking. They take up very little land mass and require very little excavation. However, at a park like Busch Gardens where most of the attractions take advantage of Busch's beautiful landscaping, Tempesto was the least interesting coaster of the day.

It was still a fast, thrilling and fun coaster and well worth doing if you have extra time and if lines are reasonable.
