Updated Busch Gardens coaster to be steepest, fastest wooden hybrid in world

Hillsborough County

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – New details have been released on an upcoming rollercoaster at Busch Gardens.

The theme park says the updated “Gwazi” coaster will be the steepest and fastest wooden hybrid rollercoaster in the world.

In an FAA filing, the park says the proposed height of the coaster is 210 feet.  

The ride has been shut down for years, but Busch Gardens announced earlier this month it would be redone as a hybrid coaster.
