He also dropped the word hybrid too so it's all but confirmed.

absolutely we're gonna be planning a return trip to the Tampa/Orlando parks in 2020.. this just puts icing on the cake.

we would have gone back to BGT anyways (we prefer to "base camp" out of Tampa) just for the great rides/park already there.. . tho the Florida version of Tempesto would be fun, like everyone else, more excited for what will happen to Gwazi.

what a GREAT announcement to wake up to today.

I couldn’t be happier. So we get...

- A super fun coaster that’s going to replace the second biggest eyesore in the park.

- An even more awesome coaster that’s going to replace the biggest eyesore in the park

- Most likely some new haunt mazes or reworked haunt mazes to replace Unearthed and Black Spot which is not as exciting but always cool for Howl O Scream fans since there’s not a ton of turnover with the houses.

What’s not to love?

This is an incredible announcement. The Sky Rocket II was all but confirmed, but I was still holding out hope Gwazi would get RMCed. They managed to announce both in one fell swoop.

Absolutely! I'm definitely making a return trip to BGT in 2020. This announcement kinda makes me jelly that they didn't hint at BGW 2020 plans since it's my home park and all... :(

Maybe for 2020 they'll put in a B&M wing coaster into the old station and call it Drachen's Revenge.

I am guessing the reason for the early 2020 announcement is due to the mess of construction happening during the 2019 season on Gwazi. I am really looking forward to its redesign/makeover/redo.

Super excited for this! Sky Rocket II's are my favorite clone model, so I'm really stoked to have one at my home park. They're fast, intense, and give crazy good airtime in the back. Love the color scheme too.
To further solidify Busch Gardens’ reign as Florida’s thrill ride leader, more news is on the horizon – a second new thrill ride will be coming to the Gwazi area of the park in 2020.
