For the first time in four years, both of these Florida parks will launch new coasters in the same year.

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay officially announced Iron Gwazi, North America’s tallest hybrid and the fastest and steepest hybrid coaster in the world. Manufactured by Rocky Mountain Construction, Iron Gwazi will be 206 feet tall, feature a 91-degree drop and reach top speeds of 76 mph. The ride will include three inversions and 12 airtime hills as it races along more than 4,075 feet of purple steel track. The coaster will have a 48-inch height requirement, allowing families to ride together.

Making its debut in spring 2020 will be SeaWorld Orlando’s first launch coaster: Ice Breaker. Ice Breaker will feature four launches, both backward and forward, culminating in a reverse launch into the steepest beyond-vertical drop in Florida — a 93-foot-tall spike with a 100-degree angle.
