TAMPA, Fla.Tigris, the multi-launch coaster coming to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, is "right on track," the park says.

The theme park has shared photos from the construction site that show that installation of the ride's track is complete — all 1,800 feet of it.

At 150 feet tall, Tigris is the tallest launch coaster in Florida. It will take riders through twists, loops, and drops at speeds of more than 60 mph.

The coaster is designed to "mimic the awe-inspiring agility of the world's largest and most powerful cat — the tiger," Busch Gardens says.

Tigris is scheduled to open this spring.
