Attention thrill seekers, Busch Gardens Williamsburg's newest roller coaster, Tempesto, has opened! Not for the faint of heart, Tempesto is a whirlwind of a ride with super fast forward and backward accelerations, looping twists and turns, and launches that seem to go straight into the sky. The smooth ride is very close to the experience of flying. Our family rode it from the front row, back row and the middle. We agreed all spots were awesome but the views from the front row were worth waiting for. If you have coaster riders in the family, you'll definitely want to experience the newest addition to Busch Garden's coaster line-up. Along with Busch Garden's Griffon, Tempesto is now one of our favorite rides!
