These updates are awesome but I have a question... since there is a TON of structure to be built, is it because they are waiting for the heat of the summer to go away before doing more structural work?

That is part of it. There are also a lot of rain/thunderstorms during the summer in Florida. There is also the factor of the park having stuff going on with prep for Howl-o-Scream and various other events. They probably don't want construction with Gwazi to be too disruptive to the other scheduled events and large scale construction will have a big impact on the backstage infrastructure even if it isn't in public parts of the park, so they might be waiting until a less busy season before scaling up the construction. I am sure they have a target date and they have a ton of time left...

Iron Gwazi...ok, Six Flags. Of all the names they could have used (Uproar was my personal favorite), they chose that...?

Hopefully the real announcement gives us some renderings.

They couldn't use uproar if they wanted to go for a crocodile theme though?

There's better names in the world for sure bit frankly I couldn't care less, this ride is gonna be a beast!

I mean the ride looks pretty amazing, but the name? Yaaaaaaaaawn.
 
Excited for the coaster, but I’m not a fan of the name. I really hope that ‘Iron Gwazi’ is just a placeholder and they go for something more appropriate, like Tamsah (Crocodile in Arabic).
