Rocky Mountain Construction used the former Gwazi dueling coaster as the foundation to build something bigger and better. Iron Gwazi uses RMC's Iron Horse track system to create a giant-sized thrilling hybrid roller coaster. Standing 206-feet tall, this is the 3rd tallest ride in Busch Gardens and the tallest, fastest, steepest hybrid coaster in the world. Riders descend a 206-foot drop at a beyond-vertical 91-degrees speeding to a top speed of 76 miles per hour. With a wild layout that restores some of Gwazi's elements, riders will experience a dozen airtime moments and go upside down three times.
