Just like almost everything else, the opening had been unfortunately delayed due to the pandemic. But it's finally here, and Iron Gwazi will be opening March 11th! And if you're a pass member or Fun Card holder, you can actually ride it first on select dates starting February 11th!! (Watch video on Iron Gwazi below)
If you're not familiar with the amazingness of what Iron Gwazi will be:
Being North America’s tallest hybrid coaster, this ride takes thrills to new heights, plunging riders from a 206-foot-tall peak down a 91-degree drop and reaching top speeds of 76 miles per hour. Iron Gwazi is Busch Gardens’ tenth coaster and an exhilarating addition to the park’s collection of thrill rides. Riders will experience a dozen airtime moments, including three inversions, while racing along more than 4,000 feet of steel track. With a 48” height requirement, this invigorating attraction is a ride the whole family can conquer together.
