Named after a fabled lion with a tiger's head, Gwazi takes riders through 7,000 feet of track and six “flybys” in which the trains pass each other on the Southeast’s largest and fastest double wooden roller coaster.

According to African legend, the Gwazi Lion, with its superior strength, is locked in an intense battle over territory with the Gwazi Tiger, known for its cunning and superior speed. Each coaster has a distinct theme that symbolizes the different personalities and environments of the ferocious cats. Gwazi lion’s territory includes lava rocks in an African desert atmosphere, while the Gwazi tiger claims the lush landscape and cool streams of Asia.
