You really can’t go wrong with a Sky Rocket II. It is the new Batman The Ride Clone.

This is so exciting! What a great addition to BGT. I will have to make my maiden voyage to BGT when it opens. Oh and the Sky Rocket II is cool too.

Did anybody listen to the announcement? They pretty much confirmed rmc gwazi. When speaking he said that this was a "hybrid announcement" and that gwazi was a "rocky" ride. I just about dropped dead when I heard those words. Not only that but two big rides back to back? Busch gardens is going to roar again.

I know more about donkeys than women!

IF this is getting the RMC treatment I'm hoping it'll stay two separate dueling coasters. Preferably keeping the name Gwazi, like Iron Gwazi or Steel Gwazi. Only because I really love the name Gwazi! :lmao: :p

As for the Sky Rocket, I love these coasters way more than I thought I would and am super excited for this addition. I love the colors and the name. But being an Ohio resident I think I may wait till after 2020 to make my way back to BGT! :)

Like everyone else, I can't WAIT until 2020! It can't get more RMC confirmed than if they actually came out and announced the thing. Very exciting. I wonder when we'll start to see progress on it?

Tigris looks like a great addition as well. I've only been on Superman so far, but I love it and the Skyrocket II's seem to be pretty popular. It's even better that there's nothing in Florida anything like it. Definitely an improvement from the stupid sploosh ride that was there.

I feel bad to basically kick Tigris aside because I really love the name and the color scheme, BUT it looks like I really have to get back to my favorite amusement park in the world in 2020.

I’ll admit I was wrong about Gwazi. I thought after they took the trains for Invadr that they would one day just tear it down. I like the colors on the new coaster but yeah I think I’ll wait to visit for 2020.
