A new legend is surfacing at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay with the evolution of Iron Gwazi, North America’s tallest hybrid coaster and the fastest and steepest coaster in the world.

Manufactured by Rocky Mountain Construction, Iron Gwazi is 206 feet tall, features a 91-degree drop, and reaches top speeds of 76 miles per hour. The journey includes 3 inversions and 12 airtime moments as it races along more than 4,075 feet of purple steel track.

Iron Gwazi highlights the best of both worlds — the classic nostalgia of a wooden roller coaster and the bold innovation of a steel coaster. Thriving and adapting over millions of years, this evolutionary crossroad is perfectly represented in the crocodile, the largest living reptile, and the animal inspiration for Iron Gwazi.
