Busch Gardens Tampa Bay Officially Announce Their New Swinging New 2023 Attraction, Serengeti Flyer

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay have today, October 11th, officially announced Serengeti Flyer as the theme park’s all-new 2023 attraction.

Think back to those afternoons on the playground trying to perform an entire revolution on the swingset and multiply that about 100, this ride is our childhood dreams come true.

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 the 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.”
