    I mean, the Gwazi plot isn't that much smaller than Steel Vengeance's plot. If you took out the speed hump and went straight into a big turnaround you'd easily get it on the Gwazi plot.

    This ride really has me excited; to put things into perspective, they have roughly 7000ft of track to work with combined, so even if some track is removed, you still easily have a Steel Vengeance-sized ride! I reckon this coaster will be exactly the airtime machine that Busch Gardens Tampa needs, and they'll have a really strong coaster lineup after this opens!

    In fact, I even reckon this could give Steel Vengeance a run for its money in terms of ride experience! RMC have really been outdoing themselves these past couple of years, so nothing would surprise me!

    Steel Vengeance is great, it's the best, don't get me wrong, but... it's an easily defeat-able ride. Taking advantage of this much larger structure and track layout with more aggressive elements could merit an even larger crown jewel for RMC.

    Twisted Tiger. They filed a trademark for it.

    Those trademarks were all different names for Tigris.

    They could reuse it though.

    Having a ride called Tigris and another one called Twisted Tiger wouldn't happen surely.

    They changed Cheetah Chase to Sand Serpent when Cheetah Hunt opened after all.

    I understand your reticence but First Drop is an excellent resource.
    The 5 inversion for Untamed thing was from the same magazine and several people didnt believe it and yet the park just confirmed its true.
    I cant say how they are going to do it beyond what was said in the article but i completely trust FD that this is what is going to happen.

    And to be honest the fact that @MakoMania is no longer going to be able to ride his namesake ride ever again is way too good a story :p

    I mean, First Drop also said that Untamed was going to have 5 inversions... now look where that ended up (). The 212 foot lift height and 91 degree drop seems... insane, especially given that Gwazi's old height was only 105 feet and this 212 foot hill would be constructed from scratch rather than recycling some of the old structure (ala Mean Streak's 161' apex which Steel Vengeance added 44' onto). Can't wait for more info!

    This seems like a project they'll be adding far more to the existing structure than previous projects

    I mean RMC has killer airtime but that's literally trying to kill you.
