Darn! I am going to Busch Gardens Tampa just 4 days before that... :( But some of my friends in Florida got to ride Mako a week early when they went for a field trip, so we’ll see.

It is crazy how little of the original structure remains, it's almost a ground up RMC at this point. I think this will be substantially shorter than Steel Vengeance, but still...I'm incredibly excited for the 2020 coasters at both Busch parks.

I don't know if there's space for us to see a full size airtime hill on this one, but, I'm excited to see what elements are thrown in also given the speed at play.

#IRONGWAZI

Iron Gwazi takes thrills to new heights, plunging riders from a 206 foot-tall peak into a 91-degree drop and reaching top speeds of 76 miles per hour. Riders on Iron Gwazi will experience a dozen airtime moments, including three inversions, as they sink their teeth into crocodile-inspired thrills.

Manufactured by Rocky Mountain Construction, the newest addition at Busch Gardens will be a wood and steel hybrid coaster design, featuring a maximum height of more than 200 feet tall. The ride will feature all-new thrill elements, as well as restored elements of Gwazi. Coaster enthusiasts can follow the progress of Iron Gwazi through the park’s social media channels and using #IronGwazi.

'Iron Gwazi' sounds like a Six Flags name. Still a heck of a lot better than 'Twisted Tiger.'
That zero car is probably my favorite one on any coaster ever.

I don't know. I think this, Steel Vengeance, and Zadra are all close contenders, but all so unique. I'm still more excited for the new gen Intamin haha.

This will probably have the best drop out of all three though.
