Tigris Topped off at Busch Gardens Tampa
Busch Gardens Evolving
Construction of two projects is well underway at Busch Gardens Tampa! The first project, opening this summer, is Tigris. Tigris is a SkyRocket II launched coaster developed by Premier Rides. The second project, opening in 2020, is a Rocky Mountain Construction conversion of the former Gwazi attraction. Gwazi will be turning into a steel and wood hybrid coaster similar to Steel Vengeance and Twisted Colossus. Park Pass team member Jay (@JayInFlorida) will be on the ground at Busch Gardens fairly often taking photos for us!
Tigris Taking Shape
The summer 2019 addition, Tigris, has been topped off! Work crews are finishing up on the structure itself, following this they’ll start to work on surrounding theming and adding the ride vehicle.
Gwazi is Getting “Twisted”
Work has begun on the RMC conversion of the closed Gwazi wooden coaster. One of the lift hills have been removed and lots of old track has been ripped up! Check it out:
