If you did not know, Busch Gardens Tampa is constricting a new drop tower, Falcon's Fury. The ride will be the tallest free standing tower in North America, at 335 feet tall. It will also be the first drop tower in the world with seats tilting, so riders will look straight down while plummeting back to Earth.
On February 16th, 2014 we visited Busch Gardens Tampa for the day. Sadly, Falcon's Fury has not opened yet, but we got to look at the latest construction for the record breaking drop tower. The tower was topped off a few weeks ago, and the park just has to finish electrical and physical construction of the base. Expect Falcon's Fury to open within the next few months in the Spring!
Who's excited to ride Falcon's Fury when it opens in Spring 2014?

On Friday January 31st, 2014 we were very lucky and fortunate to go on a private tour of Dorney Park. The park is closed until late Spring for the winter, so only a few people (besides employees of the park) enter the park during the off-season. We were taken through most of the park, but most importantly we walked through Wildwater Kingdom, the waterpark inside Dorney Park where we got to see the latest construction of Snake Pit.
For 2014 the park is building Snake Pit, a 65 foot tall waterslide complex complete with 6 different waterslides. Construction has started, with land clearing has taken place. Physical construction of the ride is expected to begin in the next few weeks, with an expected opening date around Memorial Day. Below are a few pictures of the current construction progress of the new slide, with a computer generated photo of what it will look like and a birds eye view of the project. Enjoy!
