Inverted coaster

Often called the best of the world's many inverted roller coasters, the blazing, royal blue track of Montu passes through sandy valleys, down into excavated burial chambers, and into near misses with Egyptian obelisks and arches. It's an impressive, extreme ride.

Montu - Florida's Best

Montu has ranked as Florida's best roller coaster since it was built 1996. It's my favorite at Busch Gardens and features 7 inversions while gliding in and out of trenches that fit in with the Egyptian theme.

The queue line was pretty long the last time I rode it. I had a quick queue pass so I'm not completely sure, but I'd estimate it was a 45 minute wait. Keep in mind that was on a very busy day.

The ride itself is smooth, fast, and intense. Don't ever skip it while you're at Busch Gardens.
