Last Cobra's Curse Track Piece Installed at Busch Gardens

The final track piece has been installed for Busch Gardens Tampa Bay’s most anticipated family coaster, Cobra’s Curse, scheduled to open this summer.
The 4,475-pound track piece was bolted into place on March 19, marking the end of track construction and the beginning of the testing phase. This thrilling coaster will feature a menacing 30,000-pound snake icon as well as a 70-foot vertical lift that will take riders within inches of its 4-foot-long fangs.

The three-and-a-half-minute ride will then spin forward, backward, and then freely, taking riders on a whirlwind of exciting explorations. Check out these photos showing the installation of the last track piece:

Additionally, even before boarding the new ride, guests will be just inches away from a 400-cubic-foot snake exhibit in the queue line which will include Jameson’s mambas, Angolan pythons and rhinoceros and gaboon vipers. This multi-level exhibit reflects the theme of the ride while featuring several animal husbandry and enrichment components designed with the snakes’ welfare in mind, including naturalistic design elements, controlled heat sources and humidity control.

Here's an aerial photo of the entire coaster. Be sure to check out the full-size version by clicking on it:
