I seemed to get more airtime on Lion than I did on Tiger. Like Tiger, Lion is very twisted and is really fun. I especially like the drop that goes right next to the station.

The lion IMO is a step down compared to the Tiger. It still has the speed and everything but it doesnt seem as intense to me as the tiger does.

Nothing speical here. Aside from the fly-by elements this is just a sub par wooden rollercoaster. Not a great deal of air time or lateral Gs just a very average ride.

A nice woodie, but it seems like it never races. Gwazi usually doesn,t have a long line. You should defenately ride both sides.

This was a good Woodie. Not really high, but it was a dualing wooden coaster with 6 near misses! The theming in the line was good, and i liked the station

Im not a big fan of wooden coasters, but I must say Gwazi was a very good one. It was pretty fast and VERY long. Some surprisingly good airtime too. Simple but good theming and a large capacity. The dueling aspect wasnt that great but was still pretty cool in terms of layout. I like Gwazi Lion a little better than the tiger. However they are pretty similar. Helps that it is at a very good park in Busch Gardens Tampa.

Unfortunately, Gwazi Tiger was closed when I visited the park. This is a rather interesting wooden coaster(s): two tracks were almost intertwined with each other. One big problem with this was the loading process which actually took longer than the ride itself. Gwazi Lion was about what I expected: good air time, some rough spots which to be expected from a woody, and may banked turns. I loved the front seat more so than the back seat.

Okay wooden coaster. It takes way too long to load an unload though. You could be there for 45 minutes with only 3 or 4 people ahead of you in your row. And they never have the coasters go at the same time so they dont duel like they are supposed too (they did it when the ride first opened, but not anymore).

The line for Gwazi varied when I went, it was longer in morning to midday, but by the end of the day it was virtually non-existant. Both tracks have an excellent first drop, but both are very rough rides. If you can get past the roughness, though, you will find a very unique and fun ride in Gwazi. Unfortunately, the park rarely ever Duels the two sides any more, so the full experiance is rare, but even by itself Gwazi is alot of fun to experience. Worth at least one ride on each track, although the park only opens both tracks when there are fair crowds (or so ive heard).

Sadly, Tiger was closed, but Lion did not disappoint. A relentless twisting, churning ride that had a perfect combination of woodie elements. I should dock the rating two points for the dismally slow loading process in the station, but the ride - Ah! - wonderful!
