Griffon was the world's tallest and first floorless dive coaster when it opened in 2007. A highlight of Busch Gardens, Griffon plunges thrill-seekers down from a height of 205 feet at 75 mph (120 kph). Named for a mythical beast that is part eagle and part lion, Griffon is an adrenaline-pumping adventure that's unlike any coaster experience in the world.
Curse of DarKastle: The Ride
Deep in the snow-drift hills of Bavaria sits a grand castle frozen in time. Journey to the other side during this bone-chilling chase packed with dizzying drops, fog, shattering ice and pyrotechnic special effects.
A snow monster notorious for once stalking the French and German Alps, Alpengeist is rumored to be lurking in the shadows of Busch Gardens' Germany. Marks of its mischief are evident as the roller coaster careens uncontrollably, propelling riders on a dynamic, high-speed journey.
Hold on to your seats as the park's thrilling “hypercoaster,” Apollo's Chariot, plummets guests a combined 825 feet (251meters), more than any other steel roller coaster in the world.
Loch Ness Monster
The World's first interlocking, double-looping, steel roller coaster is continually rated a favorite by park guests, this classic ride gives you a peek at Scotland's most infamous serpent as it hurls you along 3,240 feet (987.5 meters) of steel track into the air, over water and through a dark cave.
Climb aboard Verbolten, a multi-launch, indoor/outdoor roller coaster! This lightning fast, multi-sensory dash through the dark and foreboding woods ends with a terrifying 88-foot plunge toward the Rhine River that will leave you breathless. Luckily, this exhilarating ride leads right back to the fun and the festivities of Oktoberfest.
This daring new roller coaster, Tempesto, lets you race into unbelievably tight turns at 63 miles-per-hour and defy gravity as you roll through a complete inversion 154-feet in the air. This thrill coaster features three launch experiences and Tempesto’s signature loop-the-loop. The same hills and thrills that made the people cheer “Tempesto!” are waiting for you!
