TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Thrill ride developers at Busch Gardens acknowledge that the park's newest attraction might not be everyone's idea of a good time.
Falcon's Fury opens on May 1. Riders will be seated upright and whisked to the top of a 335-foot tower, then the seat will pivot 90 degrees so the guest is looking straight down.
That's when the ride plunges in a six-second free fall.
Park officials say it's the tallest, free-standing drop tower in North America and the only one to feature forward tilting seats.
Falcon's Fury is the centerpiece of a newly designed section in the park called Pantopia that includes new retail and food areas.
