Gwazi Roller Coster:

It is Busch Gardens Tampa Bay's mammoth double wooden coaster. It is also the Southeast's largest and fastest double wooden roller coaster boasting more than 1.25 million board feet of lumber and over 2 million bolted connections. Named after a fabled lion with a tiger's head, Gwazi races riders through almost 7,000 feet of track and is two distinct coasters intertwined:

  • The Gwazi Tiger has an element that gives riders a slalom sensation more like a bobsled than a wooden coaster.
  • The Gwazi Lion's highlight is a seemingly continuous number of spirals.
