Iron Gwazi FULL POV – Busch Gardens Tampa
Today, Busch Gardens Tampa has shared the official POV of Iron Gwzi with us! Take a front seat ride!
When it debuts, Iron Gwazi will be North America’s tallest, and the world’s fastest, and steepest hybrid coaster. Manufactured by Rocky Mountain Construction, Iron Gwazi stands at 206 feet tall, features a 91-degree drop, and reaches top speeds of 76 miles per hour. The journey includes three inversions and 12 airtime hills as it races along more than 4,075 feet of purple steel track. With a 48” height requirement, Iron Gwazi will be an exciting thrill attraction that families can take on together.
“Iron Gwazi is the evolution of a classic wooden coaster into a modern icon,” said Stewart Clark, Park President of Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. “From the bones of the original Gwazi, a new legend rises, reaching taller heights and faster speeds, delivering the next-level thrills that our coaster fans crave and expect from Busch Gardens.”
While elements of the former wooden attraction have been integrated into the new ride, the steel track and re-imagined layout of Iron Gwazi present an entirely unique experience that tells a different story. Iron Gwazi highlights 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.
Iron Gwazi will debut at Busch Gardens Tampa Spring of 2020.
