Iron Gwazi

Iron Gwazi is an upcoming steel-wooden hybrid roller coaster under construction at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay amusement park in Tampa, Florida. Originally built as a wooden, dueling roller coaster with two separate tracks, Gwazi first opened to the public on June 18, 1999. It was constructed by Great Coasters International (GCI) and was named after a fabled creature with a head of a tiger and a body of a lion. Accordingly, the two sides of the roller coaster's track were named "Lion" and "Tiger." Both sides of the roller coaster reached a height of 105.4 feet (32.1 m), with a maximum speed of 51 mph (82 km/h), and stretched over 7,000 feet (2,100 m) when taking both tracks into account.
