Busch Gardens building world's fastest, steepest hybrid coaster
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Busch Gardens Tampa Bay says it's building the fastest and steepest hybrid roller coaster in the world.
The Florida-based theme park said last week that the 200-foot (60-meter) coaster also will be North America's tallest hybrid roller coaster when it opens next year.
A hybrid roller coaster has a mixture of wood and steel building materials.
The coaster is a reincarnation of the park's Gwazi ride, an old wooden roller coaster that closed in 2015.
