Busch Gardens Tampa Bay announced today that the highly anticipated opening of the park’s newest attraction, Cobra’s Curse will be officially open Friday, June 17.

The one-of-a-kind spin coaster features a menacing 30,000-pound snake king icon and a 70-foot vertical lift that will take riders within inches of it. During the three-and-a-half-minute ride, the coaster trains speed along at 40 mph down the track, travelling backward, forward and then spinning freely.
