    Don't expect work on Gwazi for some time tbh.

    My bet would be we will start to see work after Howl-O-Scream has finished using Gwazi's area. This is a big job, regardless of whether or not they use both sides in the conversion they still need to demolish/refurbish a heck of a lot of wood so I would imagine it will be a longer process than the Six Flags conversions.

    The IAAPA Cake shaped like the train for Tigris = better than the ride will be.
    But for real, that cake was delicious

    I don't think there's a thread for the Gwazi remodel so i'll repost this here from the IAAPA thread.

    Plot twist if GCI are remodelling Gwazi instead of RMC. Would be cool. I have a feeling that they might be cheaper than RMCs so that could make sense.

    That could work! They might be referring to the GCI hybrid structure! But didn’t the announcement say something about “rocky”?

    Yeah I remember it being mentioned but who knows. GCI hadn't announced their new product at that point. Would be a nice change although if I had to guess I'd probably still expect it to be an RMC.

    Yes. They said the ride had a ROCKY history and that it was a HYBIRD announcement. They also said that riders would be holding on to their seats. There also IS an RMC Gwazi thread: http://coasterforce.com/forums/threads/busch-gardens-tampa-rmc-gwazi.43044/
