Busch Gardens Tampa: Timbuktu – SandSerpent
Rating: * * *
Type: A “baby” roller coaster
Time: About a minute and a half
Short Take: Take the kiddies
If the Scorpion is too much for you, head here. It’s what’s known in the amusement park trade as a “wild mouse” ride. Little four-seater cars zip along a sinuous elevated track with sharp turns and a few mild drops. Kids love it but adults sit high in the little cars and may feel exposed, which can be fun (or not) depending on your taste. The ride does give you a nicely elevated view of the surrounding Timbuktu area.
One downside to the ride is that only two widely spaced cars are on the track at any given time. This is for safety reasons, but it does lead to slow loading times, which can translate into long waits in line.
