As you know Falcon’s Fury at Busch Gardens was scheduled to open the first week of May this year. We had been hearing that there were some set backs, which came to light when the media event for the ride was canceled. Today, Orlando Fun and Food learned exactly why this ride is still not open. We received a update today from Busch Gardens, and some insight into when this attraction my fly!
Busch Gardens said:
Busch Gardens’ new thrill ride Falcon’s Fury includes first-of-its kind design elements, systems and parts. Due to a delay in the fabrication of key component parts, neither the manufacturer nor Busch Gardens are able to complete the lengthy testing processes needed to open the ride to the public. The safety of our guests and team members remains Busch Gardens’ top priority and none of these delays involve safety systems. The ride has been safely operated in the initial stages of the testing process, and all other elements of the park’s newest re-imagined land Pantopia are now open to guests. Busch Gardens will provide updates on the ride opening as events warrant. We are committed to delivering world-class thrills and the best possible ride experience, and we look forward to the launch of Falcon’s Fury, North America’s tallest freestanding drop tower, later this summer!
I am perfectly fine staying off this amazing attraction for a few more months while they do the extensive testing needed! We will keep you updated on when we hear about the opening of this ground breaking attraction!
