Scorpion is a steel looping roller coaster located at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay in Tampa, Florida. It opened in 1980 as a part of the newly added Timbuktu section that gave the park a complete circuit, linking the Congo section to the Nairobi section of the park. Scorpion, to this day, remains one of the most popular rides in the Pantopia section. In 2004, before it was Pantopia as a part of the park's Timbuktu renovation, Scorpion was repainted from its original paint scheme of orange track and black supports to red track with blue supports (a paint scheme similar to SheiKra). The ride was designed by Anton Schwarzkopf as one of his Silverarrow model looping coasters. Only three of these exist today, this coaster, Twist n' Shout at Loudoun Castle in Scotland (which has closed as of 2010), and the other is known as "Looping Star" owned by the travelling fair Magic World in Africa.
