    Rode this last week, the projection in the queue wasn't working nor was on ride sound but it was still incredible. The theming and coaster elements make this great for the park. Would recommend to anyone to ride this once the park is opened.

    Rode it again today, for some reason it felt extremely rickety and a really bumpy ride from the last time I rode it. It felt like a more mild version of Gwazi. I'm not sure if it was just the train itself but it will be interesting to see what happens in the long run

    I've never been to Busch Gardens, but i finally went last Friday.
    I had so much fun experiencing Sheikra (once in the back row, once in the front row), Kumba, Cheetah Hunt (we waited so long for it but it was worth the wait) and some other coasters.
    Then we rode Cobra's Curse.
    I have been on so many roller coasters and theme park attractions.
    But Cobra's Curse was so much fun.
    It wasn't exactly thrilling, but it was a blast.
    I wish I could've ridden it again before I left, but we didn't have time.
    Fantastic ride and park!

    Cobra's Curse is down for a lengthy maintenance of 20 days, has the ride been having issues that it needs it after less than a year?

    It just seems like a usual annual refurb. Kumba and Phoenix for example have been running fine but also have length refurbishments Attractions Updates | Busch Gardens Tampa Bay

    No more than you'd typically associate with a new ride. Having said that, I wish they'd fix the brakes on the lift hill before the spinning section. When it stops for whatever reason, the car slams to a brutal halt and is even worse when it starts back up. Not a pleasant experience.

    Thanks all. I have noticed in the past that BGT likes to take their time with refurbs.

    I enjoyed this attraction, but I absolutely loved the queue. There are small details in the queue that really bring out the ride. The queue reminded me of The Mummy a bit, and felt in the ranks of some of the parks a bit to the east. It was really well themed. The ride was also great fun! The kids seem to enjoy it

    It helped that it used to be an elaborately themed King Tut's Tomb walk-through attraction.
