TAMPA, Fla. — Florida's tallest launch coaster "Tigris" is nominated for USA Today's Best New Amusement Park Attraction award.

The triple-launch steel coaster has been catapulting riders through an exhilarating array of looping twists since April.

With forward and backward motion, breath-taking drops, a 150-foot skyward surge and an inverted heartline roll — all at more than 60 miles per hour — the ride is a real thrill.
