It has been my experience on all old-school B&M inverts that the back rows are wonderfully intense. Montu is no different.

And I'm another member of the Rear Right on Kumba Cult.

Zen experience - that zero G is to die for.

Just got to experience Cobra's Curse. Great addition to Busch Gardens. They needed a well themed fun family coaster and this fits the bill. The indoor queue line is a significant step forward for the park. Hope this type of ride theming becomes standard for future park attractions.

Generally about 45-90 depending on time of day and how busy the park is. Sometimes it hits 120 on Saturdays or right after park opening.

Thank you.
We are only going to have 1.5 days at the park (with quick pass), and we're debating on weather or not to get the added cobras curse to it. It's an extra $20, but with lines under 2 hours it shouldn't be necessary. Btw... $20 is extremely steep for 1 coaster, but we don't want to miss it.

Tonight was the VIP party for Cobra's Curse! It was a great event, we had Montu, Cheetah Hunt and of course Cobra's Curse open to us for four hours! Plus lots of free food and drinks, which is always a plus. ;) Cobra's Curse is really fun family coaster and a great addition to the park!


Check out the photos:

Love what they have done with this whole area, looks fantastic! The projection mapping in the queue line also looks fantastic! Thanks for sharing!

On a whim, I went on opening day of Cobras Curse. Got to the park around 11:30a. Posted wait time was 120min. The Queue was out past the marquee and started near Crown Colony House. Including several small downtimes, we waited roughly 80-85 minutes. We rode a second time around 3pm. Posted wait time was 60 minutes. Again, including several short downtimes, it was a true 60 (I estimate it would have been 40 without the momentary delays). Both our rides were vastly different. 1st time barely spun. And while it was fun, it was very mild. 2nd time we spun like crazy. It felt out of control. This coaster is a HUGE win for BGT. A seriously fun FAMILY coaster. Can't wait to ride again!
