Adventure Island is getting an all new attraction for 2015, the first new attraction at the Busch Gardens Tampa waterpark in nine years. It’s going to be the tallest, and fastest attraction at the waterpark when it opens. It will also be the first waterslide of it’s kind in Florida. In other words, it’s going to be Colossal.
The all new slide will feature a four seat raft, and will allow guests to take the plunge down a curling tube, through a tornado tube, and out the other side . From there riders will drop down into a huge drop and up a zero-g wall, giving riders a feeling of weightlessness.
“We’re excited to continue in our tradition of offering thrilling rides, and slides, atAdventure Island and Busch Gardens® Tampa,” said Park President Jim Dean.
Colossal Curl opened earlier this year at Busch Gardens Williamsburgs’ waterpark, Water Country USA, the sister park to Adventure Island. The ride fast became one of the most popular rides in the park and the first of it’s kind in the country.
At Adventure Island, Colossal Curl will be the centerpiece in the park, right next to Mango Joes’ Cafe. The slide will be over 500 feet ling, and be 70 feet tall. It will be a fast thrilling addition to Adventure Island in 2015.
The park is currently closed for the season, and will reopen in 2015 with Colossal Curl.
