Sister parks Busch Gardens Tampa and SeaWorld Orlando this morning revealed the names of their previously announced new coasters for 2020.
Iron Gwazi and Ice Breaker will welcome riders at the two parks next year, respectively. Neither name is exactly a surprise, as the RMC-rebuilt coaster at Busch Gardens replaces that park’s old Gwazi wooden coaster and SeaWorld had been promoting its new coaster with the hashtag #Breaktheice
The Rocky Mountain Construction conversion of the former Gwazi roller coaster not will only be the tallest hybrid roller coaster in North America, it will be the fastest and steepest hybrid coaster in the world, with a height of 206 feet, a 91-degree drop and a top speed of 76 miles per hour. Iron Gwazi will include three inversions and 12 airtime hills on 4,075 feet track.
Over in Orlando, Ice Breaker will be located near Wild Arctic and feature four launches, finishing with a backward launch into the steepest drop in Florida — a 93-foot-tall spike with 100-degree angle.Tweet
