Cobra’s Curse, a spinning roller coaster scheduled to open at Tampa’s Busch Gardens this summer, is now undergoing testing.

The final piece of track for the serpentine thrill ride was bolted into place last month. 

Busch Gardens says the steel-framed Cobra’s Curse will be the only one of its kind in the world. Spanning 2,100 feet, the ride lasts three-and-half minutes and will feature a 70-foot vertical lift that takes guests within inches of the fangs of an 80-foot-high snake king statue before spinning forward, backward and finally freely at speeds of up to 40 mph.

While waiting in line for Cobra’s Curse, riders will pass a 400-cubic-foot snake exhibit housing Angolan pythons, vipers and Jameson’s mambas.
