Is it true that this park will get a B&M Giga for 2019?! Or will Gwazi be converted into another awesome RMC coaster!


Or is something else coming!

I can't answer either way. Any links or posts to back up the rumors?

A quote from someone on the grove show chat box.

He probability meant BGT, cause there’s no way Williamsburg is getting a Giga(theres already a giga nearby). I could be wrong though.

Actually, there’s one thing I overlooked. Kings Dominion also now has an RMC coaster that has a higher ranking than their Giga. Not to mention Williamsburg has more room for a large coaster. So it is more likely that Busch Gardens Williamsburg will get a Giga in say, 2020.

Busch Gardens Tampa will most likely get an RMC makeover for Gwazi.

Uproar sounds like a tower ride or launch attraction.

Twisted Tiger dose sound like a RMC makeover of Gwazi

Well unfortunately it looks like the next coaster will not be an RMC makeover.

It is starting to look like just another Phobia clone.

They are replacing the chute ride which doesn't leave room for a whole lot. I'm sure they could try and add something more exciting but Cost saving and flashy seems to be the MO for a while.

Stinks to see that coaster sitting idol.  they really need to do something with it. Hopefully with their finances turning around a rebirth will be sooner rather then later.

Well I got good news and bad news.   Bad news is, their only getting a Tempesto clone for next year.   The good news though is that Gwazi RMC is coming the following year.

So terrible puns about Hybrid and rocky. Not sure why they would hint and not just hold off complexity. but good to hear. it needs it and the park needs the top attraction.

The original ride looked alike a lot of fun. It was disappointing when they closed the ride.  Cheatah hunt looks like fun but it is not a unique as What it replaced.
