“Falcon’s Fury” Trademarked by SeaWorld

SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment, operators of the SeaWorld and Busch Gardens theme parks, have filed a new trademark for the name “Falcon’s Fury” for use as an “amusement park ride”. Since trademarks are filed by parent companies, the specific park in which they will be used isn’t included. However, we know Busch Gardens Tampa is getting a new attraction and relocating an existing one for the 2013 season, so it’s very likely going to be used there.

Since we already know that their new drop tower will be called “Desert Dive“, “Falcon’s Fury” will probably be the new name for the relocated Sandstorm attraction. According to plans filed with the SWFWMD back in February, Sandstorm is being relocated to an area just between the Bird Gardens and Morocco section of the park. A bird themed name appears to be quite fitting, given the attractions new location and the prominence of Falcon’s in Morocco.

What do you think of the name Falcon’s Fury? Do you think it’s a fitting name for the relocated Sandstorm attraction? Or do you think the name is intended for a completely different attraction? Be sure to let us know in the comment section below, on our Forums, or our Facebook page!

Sandstorm’s New Home

We previously reported that the plans for the 2013 attraction at Busch Gardens Tampa called for the relocation of the Sandstorm ride, which is currently located in the Timbuktu section of the park. The ride’s new home has been a topic of debate over the past week, with guesses of its new location ranging from Nairobi to Egypt to the Bird Gardens. Thanks to permits filed with the Southwest Florida Water Management District last week, we now know Sandstorm will be moved into the Morocco section of the park, right across from Gwazi Gliders. We’ve included several images below detailing the new location of Sandstorm:
