Gwazi, the dueling wooden roller coaster at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay reopened this past Saturday with new “Millenium Flyer” trains. The coaster has long been known as giving a rough ride, but with the new vehicles built by the original manufacturer, Great Coasters International, the ride is now a lot smoother.
American Coaster Enthusiast (ACE) and Florida Coaster Club members who visited on Jan. 22 were able to get a free ride photo if they wore a club shirt. Those wearing a Gwazi shirt were also offered a free photo.
Here’s a video from contributor Banks Lee with a look at the new Gwazi trains and interviews with Busch Gardens, Great Coasters International and ACE officials:
