Busch Gardens Tampa will install a mystery new ride on the site of the existing Sandstorm attraction in 2013, it has been revealed.
Florida Thrills reports that the park has filed an application with the city of Tampa for permission to relocate Sandstorm to enable the project to go ahead. The nature of the ride's replacement is unknown at present.
Sandstorm is an orbiter-style ride, similar to those in place at amusement parks all ove rthe world. It features six articulated arms which are attached to a rotating base. Each arm holds three vehicles, which also rotate during the ride's cycle. It is not yet known where the ride will be re-homed in Busch Gardens Tampa.
Busch Gardens Tampa's last major addition was the Cheetah Hunt multi-launch roller coaster in 2011.
