Though Gwazi has been closed for several years now, Busch Gardens Tampa announced that this classic attraction will be reimagined as Iron Gwazi in 2021. While elements of the former wooden attraction will be integrated into the new ride (only about a quarter of the old attraction remains), Iron Gwazi will have a reimagined layout and steel track that will tell a different story and provide a completely new experience that, when finished, will make this attraction North America’s tallest, and the world's fastest, and steepest hybrid roller coaster. At 206 feet tall, Iron Gwazi will feature a 91-degree drop, and reach top speeds of 76 miles per hour. The journey will include 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 will have 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. Originaly expected to open in Spring 2020, it is now hoped to open early 2021.
