If you've been living under a rock or haven't been to Busch Gardens lately, Iron Gwazi will be North America's tallest hybrid coaster, and the fastest and steepest hybrid coaster in the world! It'll have a 206-foot tall peak, into a 91 degree drop, and reach top speeds of 76 mph!!
Neal Thurman, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay's Park President, announced:
Iron Gwazi has been highly anticipated by roller coaster enthusiasts around the world since we first announced this new legend. Due to the unprecedented challenges over the last two years, Iron Gwazi was delayed, and we recognize the delay has disappointed our fans. We appreciate the patience our guests have shown. We’re finally able to confirm that we will be delivering on the next-level thrills that our coaster fans crave and expect from Busch Gardens, when we open this incredible coaster this spring.
