Busch Gardens Tampa confirms closure of Gwazi in February

CONFIRMED - Gwazi closing at Busch Gardens in early 2015 2


Busch Gardens Tampa has confirmed that the final day to ride the wooden roller coaster Gwazi is February 1st, 2015.

Gwazi opened back in 1999 as a dueling wooden coaster built by Great Coasters International.  The trains were replaced with  Millennium Flyer trains back in 2011 to try and provide a smoother ride to guests.

The Tiger side of the ride was closed back in 2012 due to budgeting cuts and it now looks like it is the end of the road for Gwazi for good.

Busch Gardens has not yet announced what or if anything will be replacing Gwazi in the future, only that the ride will be closing for good on February 1st.
