Gwazi is Busch Gardens Tampa Bay's mammoth double wooden coaster. It is also the Southeast's largest & fastest double wooden roller coaster, boasting more than 1.25 million board feet of lumber & more than 2 million bolted connections.
Named after a fabled lion with a tiger's head, Gwazi races riders through almost 7,000 feet of track & six "flyby" maneuvers in which trains pass within feet of each other at crossing speeds of 100 mph. Gwazi is in reality two distinct coasters intertwined: Gwazi Tiger has an element that gives riders a slalom sensation, more like a bobsled than a wooden coaster. Gwazi Lion's highlight is a seemingly continuous number of spirals.
