Busch Garden Tampa’s newest roller coaster, Iron Gwazi, will officially open on Friday, March 11, 2022!

Iron Gwazi has a hybrid design of wood and steel. This allows the attraction to combine the fun of a classic wooden coaster with the thrills of a steel coaster.

And there are definitely thrills! Guests can enjoy three inversions and a total of twelve airtime moments. The coaster boasts a 206 foot-tall peak, a 91-degree drop, and top speeds of 76 miles per hour. This makes it the fastest and steepest hybrid coaster in the world!
