After a new 2 year delay due to the Covid, Busch Garden’s Iron Gwazi  coaster is finally opening this weekend. The hybrid steel coaster features a 206 foot  tall 91° barrel roll down drop, zero-g stall and huge overbanked curve – all while reaching speeds up to 76 mph  along 4,075 feet of track. it’s the fastest and steepest of it’s kind in the world. This is the 10th roller coaster at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. According to Fox 13 “Pass Members will have special privileges to begin riding the Iron Gwazi this weekend. The ride officially opens to all park guests on March 11th.”

In a recent poll, Busch Garden’s Tampa Bay was voted the #6 best amusement park in America. From the looks of this monster, BG Tampa may be moving up on the list.

This video is shot at 5K / 60 frames per second and if your monitor is big enough, about as close to VR as you’re going to get without putting on a headset. There’s no screams, no people talking, just pure POV video shot from the front seat. You ready?

I’d love to be able to slap on a pair of VR goggles or better yet, jump in the front seat and ride this coaster. The IG coaster looks to be worth the wait.
