What It's Like to Ride Busch Garden's Cobra's Curse Coaster

Afraid you don't have the stomach for the Cobra's Curse? Better start with this POV video then.

Busch Garden Tampa Bay's Cobra's Curse coaster begins with a 70-foot vertical lift that takes thrill-seekers within inches of the king of snakes. (Don't worry; he won't bite.) The 3 1/2 minute ride speeds along at 40 mph through 2,100 feet of track - even traveling backwards, forward and everything in between. The coaster's spins change with each ride, giving the added bite to the coaster experience. (And bonus: It's right next to Busch Garden's amazing snake exhibit.)
