A new legend is coming in 2020 to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay with the evolution of Iron Gwazi, North America’s tallest hybrid coaster, and the fastest (and steepest) in the world. Iron Gwazi will be 206 feet tall with a 91-degree drop and reaching top speeds of 76 mph! The journey will include three inversions and 12 airtime moments as it races along more than 4,075 feet of track. With a 48″ height requirement, Iron Gwazi will be an exciting thrill attraction that families can experience together.
Elements of the former wooden attraction will be integrated into the new ride, but the steel track and reimagined layout will present a unique experience. Iron Gwazi will highlight the best of both worlds — the classic nostalgia of a wooden coaster and the bold innovation of a steel coaster. Thriving and adapting over millions of years, this evolutionary crossroad is perfectly represented in the crocodile, the largest living reptile, and the animal inspiration for Iron Gwazi and it’s ride car, which has finally be unveiled!
Keep an eye out for new updates on Iron Gwazi as it races toward 2020.
