Busch Gardens Tampa Bay celebrated the grand opening of the record-breaking Iron Gwazi in March 2022, which is now the world's fastest and steepest hybrid wooden/steel roller coaster. At 206 feet tall, Iron Gwazi features a 91-degree drop, and reaches a top speed of 76 miles per hour. The journey includes three inversions and 12 airtime hills as this new roller coaster races along more than 4,075 feet of purple steel track. And like Icebreaker at SeaWorld Orlando, Iron Gwazi has a 48 inch height requirement, making this another family-friendly thrill ride at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. The theme of the attraction will also be changing to the Crocodile.  Originally expected to open in Spring 2020, it opened in March 2022.
