Actually, I got bitten quite a lot when I was there last summer. Never near the coasters, the two worst areas I noticed was the viewing area by the gorillas and chimps and Curiosity Caverns and occasionally Jambo Junction. However, we were in those areas a lot in the morning so it could be because of that. The chimps area was so bad sometimes I had to run in place to keep them from biting me. Bug spray should help though. Maybe they just like the shadier areas.

Good to hear this has an openings date. Love the treadmill station, keep it moving.

BGT really outdid themselves on this one, this coaster looks immaculate. The themeing looks amazing and in my opinion, better then even Makos. I hope this is really the future for the SeaWorld parks because if so, then I think it's in good hands because this coaster looks great. It's nice to see that they put in all this work for a family coaster.
TPR got to go to the Cobra's Curse Media Event today at Busch Gardens in Tampa and it was a TON of fun! This coaster is the perfect addition to the park, almost everyone can ride with a 42 inch height requirement and it is unique and fun enough to keep you coming back for more! The queue is actually a very important part of the ride with lots of theming details, projection mapping and interactive elements. Reptiles are also nearby with a 400-cubic-foot snake exhibit which includes Jameson’s mambas, Angolan pythons and rhinoceros and gaboon vipers! The coaster has a 70 foot vertical lift which is similar to an outdoor elevator. It is a 3:30 ride with a second lift and a freespining second half of the ride at a top speed of 40mph.
Busch Gardens® Tampa puts a spin on family thrills in 2016 with a brand new family thrill ride – Cobra’s Curse. This spin coaster is the only one of its kind in the world, featuring a vertical lift and taking riders on a whirlwind adventure of exciting explorations.
Located in the Egypt area of the park, explorers will come face-to-face with an 80-foot snake icon, trek over the park’s Serengeti Plain® and discover the mysteries of an Egyptian archeological excavation.
“This isn’t your ordinary spin coaster. In true Busch Gardens style, we’re putting a twist on this attraction and taking riders on an unforgettable and exciting journey,” said Busch Gardens Park President Jim Dean. “
“The addition of a family spin coaster complements the selection of thrill rides Busch Gardens offers, and we know it’s an attraction that guests from across the globe will enjoy,” Dean added. “We continue to find new and exciting ways to offer thrills for the entire family, and we know Cobra’s Curse will even further solidify Busch Gardens as Florida’s Thrill Leader.”
Now what you really want to see... onto the photos!
Time to check in! These stilt walker cobra dudes are AWESOME!
Our first glimpse at the iconic Cobra tower of the ride! This creates interest and excitement in the whole area!
Another cobra dude welcomes us into his lair... a fully air conditioned queue!
Super cool use of projection mapping in the queue,
Uh-Oh! The cobra is mad!
The station is really nice! It is big, with a moving walkway to help you board and some theming to continue the storyline.
The cars are even themed a bit and very comfortable.
HUNGRY COBRA EAT COASTER CAR!
This is going to be a prime spot for photos!
No ride is complete without a gift shop and this one has lots of interesting cobra items!
They even sell a custom blend wine in a Cobra's Curse commemorative bottle!
They also have a custom blend on the coke freestyle machine - the Cobra Twist! It tastes like a combo of Fanta Peach with raspberry. Sounds weird, but it is delicious!
They even updated the bathrooms by Montu - find the mirror with this hidden symbol...
And this appears! How cool is that!
Cool concept art of the queue and loading area.
And a model of the whole ride!
Cobra's Curse is NOW OPEN at Busch Gardens in Tampa, Florida!
