GET READY TO #TAKEONTIGRIS!
Busch Gardens Tampa Bay brings a new level of excitement with a triple-launch coaster to open spring 2019.

An innovative experience, Tigris will catapult riders through an exhilarating array of looping twists with forward and backward motion, breath-taking drops, a 150-foot skyward surge, and an inverted heartline roll, all at more than 60 miles per hour. Tigris will race riders along more than 1,800 feet of steel track designed to mimic the awe-inspiring agility of the world’s largest and most powerful cat –the tiger.



To further solidify Busch Gardens reign as Florida’s thrill ride leader, more news is on the horizon – a second new thrill ride will be coming to the Gwazi area of the park in 2020. To learn more and be the first to know about construction updates, new events and future announcements, fans can join the social conversation using #TakeOnTigris on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

I'm not sure if its true but they kept on hinting "Rocky and Hybrid" during the announcement for the Gwazi part.

Yes and they also said:
"Gwazi will be revamped into a new attraction for 2020"
Says enough I guess

Well, they have been confirmed real. I also think this is a great PR move to get people talking about new coasters coming to the future of the chain.

SeaWorld spokesman Travis Claytor confirmed Tuesday the images are real and pulled from a company presentation, although he stressed nothing has been made final or approved yet.

All but confirmed, the GCI dueling model has been reported to not be for any park in particular.

My homepark used to be Busch Gardens Tampa. I grew up with the Gardens and I love it to death. I will never forget my walks on the bridge that went parallel to Tangiyaka Tidal Wave (ride removed for Tigris) and running for the hills when the giant splash happened. And I miss Rhino Rally to death, it was my favorite ride at Busch Gardens when I was younger (aka the ride removed for Cheetah Hunt’s twisty canyon and river section).
