Exclusive: Watch the first video from Florida’s record-breaking Iron Gwazi roller coaster

Thanks to the pandemic, theme park fans have had to wait a year longer than expected for the launch of Busch Gardens Tampa Bay’s new Iron Gwazi, the world’s fastest and steepest hybrid wooden/steel roller coaster.

The ride was supposed to open in March, but the COVID-19 pandemic caused Busch Gardens to close. While the park reopened with limited capacity and introduced safety protocols in June, officials decided to postpone the debut of Iron Gwazi. It is now scheduled to open in the spring of 2021.

“It’s going to be a spectacular ride, and it’s certainly highly anticipated,” Says Neal Thurman, park president, about the hybrid coaster. “While we couldn’t bring it to life [in 2020], it’s going to happen, and the excitement about it is not going to change.”
