TAMPA BAY, FL
Everyone knows the most thrilling thing about amusement parks are the roller coasters, and the bigger they are the better. Back in 2015, Busch Gardens ended the story of the beloved Gwazi coaster, closing down the dueling track wooden coaster to riders forever; however, they recently released a photo of a new roller coaster in progress, and it's expected to hold some pretty awesome world records.
In an Instagram post, Busch Gardens posted the progress photo, showing the bones of the coaster underway. The yet to be named coaster will be wood and steel hybrid - keeping some of the Gwazi's existing wooden structure.
The post reads, "It's official... the first track pieces have been placed😍 #2020Rising". While the exact date of opening is unknown, we're excited to see the final product. You can see the first part of the new track below.
