wazi, the popular wooden roller coaster at Busch Gardens, made its final ascent Sunday, as its passengers clapped and chanted: “Gwa-zee! Gwa-zee! Gwa-zee!”
The clackety-clack of cars was complimented by a soft breeze and a bird’s eye view of sparse traffic on Busch Boulevard.
One rider, who had never previously ridden the rickety roller coaster, got nervous and wondered aloud how fast Gwazi would go.
“Fifty-five miles an hour,” came a voice from the last car.
