Busch Gardens Tampa will re-open its Gwazi wooden roller coaster on Saturday January 22, with new Millennium Flyer trains on the dual tracks.


Here's Gwazi, with the old trains

To celebrate the re-opening of the coaster, visitors who ride Gwazi on the 22nd will receive a coupon good for 30 percent off at any food location in the park, including restaurants and snack carts. In addition, anyone who rides on that day while riding a Gwazi or American Coaster Enthusiasts T-shirt will get a free ride photo.

I rode this coaster a little over a year ago and it was rough! I know it's a wooden coaster but it was like being thrown down a stairs.

Do you know if the changes they are making will make it a bit smoother?

Also want to know is it smoother? I will never go on it again if it's like the last time I rode. Worst roller coaster experience.
