The final track piece has been installed for Busch Garden’s new coaster, Cobra’s Curse. The coaster is scheduled to open this summer.

The 4,475-pound track piece was bolted into place on Saturday, March 19, marking the end of track construction and the beginning of the testing phase.

The spin coaster will be the only one of its kind in the world, featuring a 30,000-pound snake king icon and a 70-foot vertical lift that will take riders within inches of its 4-foot-long fangs.

The queue is expected to host a snake exhibit, featuring species such as Jameson’s mambas, Angolan pythons and rhinoceros and gaboon vipers.
