Screamscape sources tell us that GWAZI will be the latest item cut from the company budget. I’m told that the last day for guests to ride GWAZI will be Sunday, February 1st, 2015. After that it will silently close, but don’t look for it to be demolished anytime soon... as that will cost money that the park doesn’t have. Instead Gwazi will sit as a silent sleeping giant until the park is ready to redevelop the site for a new future attraction. I have reached out to the park for an official comment on this, but so far have heard nothing back to officially confirm this. So for now, it is a rumor, but you’ve got a few weeks left to get your last rides in before GWAZI goes extinct.
UPDATE - Screamscape has confirmed with Busch Gardens Tampa that they do plan on closing GWAZI on or around February 1st, 2015. The exact date may change between now and then however, but the park does plan to make an official announcement with a confirmed final date near the start of the new year.
That being said, it does not mean that Busch Gardens Tampa has no new additions planned for the next few years. We are sure we will be hearing additional information about them in the near future.
As someone who only visits maybe once every 8 or 9 years, im not aware of much. would someone please tell me what is going on at the park?
To me i think its an amazing park even tho it could use a few family rides.
also what made Gwazi so rough? i remember it as a fun rride(when both tracks were working. also why did one side stop?
The original trains tore up the track and even though they added millennium flyer trains a few years ago it was too late,I just rode it about 10 days ago and it was beyond rough.They should seriously reconsider a RMC topper track refurbishment instead of just letting it sit there.If they want to go with a dark ride or hyper to replace it that's fine but hopefully its not 5 years from now.
