In the spring of 2014 Busch Gardens Tampa will be the home of a thrill ride that will be the tallest free standing drop tower in North America.

The new attraction will be a 335-foot drop tower called “Falcon’s Fury“. This ride will give riders five seconds of free fall, simulating the feel of “rushing to the earth like a bird of prey at 60 mph.” The terrifying face-down free fall will be equal to 3.5 Gs.

Wow! I’m wondering if people will be required to have cardiac physical before getting on this ride?

If you think this ride is over the top in height, plans are under way to build a 425-foot observation wheel at the I-Drive Live complex now under construction in Orlando.

Sounds more like my kind of ride…SLOW!
