Soar High on the Serengeti Flyer!

Groups who love to get their thrills through an adrenaline rush won't want to miss a new, record-breaking ride arriving in spring 2023 at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. The new ride, Serengeti Flyer, is the world's tallest and fastest ride of its kind: A screamin' swing!

With each swing, riders will soar higher and higher above Busch Gardens Tampa Bay's expansive 65-acre Serengeti Plain while experiencing multiple negative-G moments before plunging back toward Earth.

Serengeti Flyer will feature twin dueling arms that soar progressively higher, reaching speeds of 68 mph and a maximum height of 135 feet at the ride's peak. Guests will be seated back-to-back in rows of 10 across two gondolas, allowing for 40 guests to experience the ride at once.

"Serengeti Flyer's thrilling ride experience is bound to provide riders with a pulse-pounding encounter that can only be found at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay," said Neal Thurman, Park President of Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. "We believe that Serengeti Flyer will be the perfect high-thrill addition to our world-class portfolio of attractions including Iron Gwazi, the Golden Ticket Award Winner for the Best New Roller Coaster in 2022."
