Experience the twists of the Python, one of the world's first inverting roller coasters. This thrilling steel coaster will make you scream through a double spiraling corkscrew and an intense 70-foot plunge.

After 30 years, Python ended its run at Busch Gardens on October 31, 2006. The coaster will be removed to make room for a future expansion.
