Iron Gwazi 

  • Opening at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay in 2020

  • Will be North America’s tallest roller coaster

  • And the fastest, steepest hybrid coaster in the world

  • Manufactured by Rocky Mountain Construction 

  • Will be 206 feet tall, have a 91-degree drop and reach speeds of 76mph

  • Include three inversions and 12 airtime hills 

  • More than 4,075 feet of purple steel track 

  • 48” height requirement, so families can ride together

  • Elements of the former wooden attraction will be integrated into the ride, but will have a new layout and be a unique experience

  • Will highlight the nostalgia of a wooden coaster and the bold innovation of a steel coaster

  • The crocodile is the animal inspiration for Iron Gwazi
