At least based on the concept art, the purple / dark green / light green / yellow color scheme looks really good. It'll be fascinating being able to keep up with the construction of an amazing new coaster for once, since I go to Busch Gardens pretty often.

2020 may just be the year I make a trip to Florida; these rides are gonna be great! Ngl, tho, all the park guests are gonna think Gwazi means crocodile. Definitely an interesting choice of name.

Donkeys are my way of life!

I doubt the average park guest knows or cares what Gwazi means. Or Kumba or Montu for that matter. It's just a name for a ride.

YES! This exactly! My kiddo is way past Rollerskaters, but it'll be a couple more years before we get to 54", let alone him wanting to do 7 loops... but he is going to be super excited about Ice Breaker! :br

Exactly! I'm so confused how a crocodile is the theme of Iron Gwazi. Gwazi means Tiger's head and Lion's body. So.... :derek:

An African Swahili name meaning beast or something similar would have been better. Like how Kumba means roar.

Busch Gardens has failed at naming ever since Cheetah Hunt, which should have been named Cheetaka. Their branding fits so much better with one word names. Their next coaster will be named "Hang Gliding Safari Adventure" and the theme will be a Flamingo, lmao
Gwazi means Tiger head on Lion body in Swahili language, so here's Crocodile themed trains.

It's poor marketing and doesn't fit their brand. Makes it look like they hired a marketing team from craigslist. I mean, at least have the logo and theme be the old Gwazi logo but in a steel shiny emblem so it looks like it's made of iron.
