New Giant Swing at Busch Gardens
A Giant 135-foot Swing, Serengeti Flyer, comes to Busch Gardens this year!
Tampa Bay's Busch Gardens is set to debut a brand new swing called the Serengeti Flyer, this February 27. The Serengeti Flyer is 135 feet tall and hits speeds of up to 68 miles per hour! This is the tallest and fastest swing in the world!
“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.”
The official ride description from park officials states that, "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."
