Busch Gardens Tampa Bay announced (Oct  14th 2022) that their new attraction 'Serengeti Flyer' would be the world's tallest and fastest screamin' swing. Now open, the Serengeti Flyer features twin arms that sway back-and-forth reaching speeds of 68 mph and 135-foot height at peak.   Guests are seated across two gondolas, back-to-back in rows of 10, giving 40 guests the chance to ride at a time. As riders swing ever higher, they feel multiple negative- G moments and get great views over the expansive 65-acre Serengeti Plain at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.

In a press release prior to the ride opening, Park President of Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, Neal Thurman said, “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,” “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.”
