Nice report! It's crazy how imposing Iron Gwazi is on the skyline. It almost looks like a Giga coaster!

^ This. I'm loving the Goliath-style lift hill too. Just breathtaking.

I can't wait to see how high the second hill ends up going. By the looks of it from this angle, even assuming it gets taller you are still going to absolutely FLY over it...

I love not knowing what's really coming next in the layout and that they never released a full POV. I don't really avoid "spoilers" for coasters but I'll probably have a chance to ride this not long after opening so I might try as hard as I canto not look at any mroe new pics of this thing. Absolutely can't wait to get back over to BGT this summer.

So... this just came up on my news feed (from July, sorry if this has already been torn apart)...

https://www.thetravel.com/busch-gardens-best-worst-rides/

This might be the stupidest reading I have **ever** seen (and not just because of the spelling of Scorpion). -- Also: I think Coasterbill may have 3 actual, full-fledged heart attacks. (*Cough* #5, #3, #1) -- Warning you now.

"You are then instantly brought back up into an upside-down loop before speeding off through the seven inverted tacks." -- huh? Tracks doesn't even make sense either. WHAT DOES IT EVEN MEAN.

I mean, besides the list itself.

That article had to be the worst I have ever seen on the rides at BGT. Who or what ever wrote that needs to never write another review again.

Nuthin' better than a naked donkey!

The reason the article says to not ride Kumba is because it's all the way in the back of the park. So, you're telling me not to ride the coaster on account of laziness? That's what the skyride's for, biotch. Oh wait, you don't want us riding that either. :butt:

But they recommend riding Congo Rapids, which is right next door, so... Looks like I’ve been doing BGT wrong all these years!
