Busch Gardens Tampa Bay Teases New Screamin’ Swing Attraction

The official Busch Gardens Tampa Bay Twitter account has shared a teasing photo of a brand-new attraction coming soon to the park.

What’s Happening:

  • Busch Gardens shared a picture of an under construction attraction at the Tampa theme park.
  • Pictured is an S&S Screamin’ Swing, essentially a giant swing that can get up to 68 mph. Identical versions of this attraction are also open at Busch Gardens Williamsburg and SeaWorld San Antonio, among other parks.
  • Twin dueling arms will alternate sides and sway back-and-forth at 68 mph (in the case of Tidal Surge at SeaWorld San Antonio), creating multiple airtime moments that levitate guests out of their seats with each pulse-pounding swing. Riders’ legs will dangle and hang as they soar over the waterski lake and take in the beautiful views of the park, all while reaching multiple negative G moments before plunging back towards the earth.
  • What’s interesting is that the park has acknowledged the construction of the unnamed attraction, even though it has not been officially announced.
  • The construction is visible from within the park, most prominently near the elephant enclosure, in the site of the park’s former Rhino Rally safari attraction.

  • Presumably, the attraction will open at some point in 2023.
