We’ve waited… but we’ll have to wait a little longer. Busch Gardens has announced the opening date for its newest coaster Iron Gwazi.

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay announced moments ago that Iron Gwazi will open as North America’s tallest hybrid coaster and the fastest and steepest hybrid coaster in the world in March 2022. The ride features a 206-foot-tall peak into a 91-degree drop and reaching top speeds of 76 miles per hour. The journey will include a dozen airtime moments, including three inversions, as it races along more than 4,075 feet of purple steel track. Iron Gwazi has a 48” height requirement.

“Iron Gwazi has been highly anticipated by roller coaster enthusiasts around the world since we first announced this new legend. Due to the unprecedented challenges over the last two years, Iron Gwazi was delayed, and we recognize the delay has disappointed our fans. We appreciate the patience our guests have shown.” said Neal Thurman, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay Park President. “We’re finally able to confirm that we will be delivering on the next-level thrills that our coaster fans crave and expect from Busch Gardens, when we open this incredible coaster this spring.”

My favorite thing at Busch Gardens…

I can’t believe it took me dozens of visits to Busch Gardens to finally notice this!
