Last week, Busch Gardens Tampa announced that Falcon's Fury, their new drop tower ride, will have its grand opening on May 1, 2014.

Falcon's Fury will be the tallest free-standing drop tower in North America at 335 feet and will have the twist of rotating riders at a 90 degree angle looking face down and then hold them from anywhere from 1 to 5 seconds (via a random program) before dropping them back to Earth at 60 MPH.

Also opening that date will be the new land Pantopia - currently the Timbuktu section of the park, which is getting a major makeover.
