TAMPA BAY, FL
The nation’s most anticipated and terrifying new roller coaster is finally making its debut this week at Busch Gardens Tampa. The Post got an exclusive first look and ride on the 206-foot beast known as the Iron Gwazi.
So how was it? In a word (uttered in a full-throated scream): YEEEEE-AHHHHH! It is among the best — if not the best — coaster in Florida, aka the theme park capital of the world. It is also unlike any other coaster in the state.
Known as an “IBox” wooden-steel hybrid coaster, the ride is actually a makeover. Opened in 1999, it was originally known as Gwazi.
