This is opening weekend for Tigris, the newest roller coaster at Busch Gardens. Premier Rides has a winner with this one. You’ve heard the stats… a 150 foot skyward surge, 1800 feet of track, speeds up to 62 MPH, an inverted heartline roll and it goes forwards AND backwards. I had a few more questions. Take a look.

I asked Busch Gardens President and CEO Stewart Clark… Where is the best SEAT on Tigris: the back, middle or front? What is the “comfort collar” and a “Zero G Heartline Roll?” I also asked one of the ride’s creators, Andrew, who was the first HUMAN to ride Tigris? Stewart Clark also reluctantly told me his top 3 favorite rides at Busch Gardens and where Tigris ranks in that top 3.

It’s Geno. I got to get 3 rides in. If you’ve got a strong stomach, sit in the back. If you want the thrill, sit in the front row. Your first ride should probably be in a middle seat. It’s only about 45 seconds long, but trust me… you wouldn’t want it to be longer! You’ll need a few minutes to get yourself back together. And then 20 minutes later, you’ll want to ride again.

Hey it's Geno. Thanks for reading. Got something to add to this story? Connect with me on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
