Iron Gwazi vs Gwazi at Busch Gardens Tampa: Which is better?
There has been a trend recently in the roller coaster/ theme park world.
We have seen it take place with Steel Vengence at Cedar Point, Goliath at Six Flags Great America, Twisted Timbers at Kings Dominion and currently in the works, Wildcat’s Revenge at Hersheypark, scheduled to open this year.
If you don’t know, the trend involves classic wooden coasters getting what we call, “the RMC treatment.”
RMC or “Rocky Mountain Construction” is a manufacturing and constructions company famous for its I-Box track and topper track design for wooden coasters.
In total, they have revamped 20 coasters, usually gorgeously combining steel and sometimes the original wood frames of the coasters to revive them as brand new thrill coasters.
They have crafted the same treatment for Busch Gardens Tampa’s Gwazi Roller Coaster, reborn as the immensely popular Iron Gwazi, a wooden dueling roller coaster boasting two separate tracks.
But is the new version better?
Today, I will discuss the two versions by comparing the histories, learning about the changes and key differences to determine which is the best version at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.
