Busch Gardens visitors will fall more than 300 feet, face first, at 60mph when  the park opens Falcon's Fury next spring
On Tuesday 11th June, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay held a press conference to officially announce Falcons fury which is set to become Orlando's largest free standing drop tower. 

The attraction which is set to open to visitors in spring next year, will be an astonishing 300 feet high will be double the size of Doctor Doom's Freefall at Islands of Adventure which only stands at 150 feet tall.

During the press conference park president Jim Dean stated "We had to get approvals from all the appropriate organizations to build a tower that tall, It will have a red beacon on top to make sure we have no accidents with aircrafts". Guests will begin in a seated position clustered in groups of four and will be rotated around the tower to the top in batches of 32 guests. Upon reaching the top of the tower guests will rotate 90° forwards so you will be face first during freefall.

Falcon's Fury is under construction in the Timbuktu area of the theme park, near its Desert Theater. It replaces the Sandstorm ride, which has been at Busch Gardens since 1979. The new attraction will join Harry Potter's 'London' expansion and Magic Kingdom's Seven Dwarfs Mine Train which is opening next year in Central Florida area.
