It will be steel, like Goliath at SF Great America, and Zadra.

It's even shown in the updated renderings from when they announced the name/stats last month:

So the family is planning a Disney trip mid April next year. What's the chances this baby is open by then? Boy I'd like to catch it while we are down there!

^Construction is moving pretty quickly and the coaster is slated to open in "Spring 2020" so I would say that it is possible it would be ready by then, barring any delays and pending positive testing... That being said, the park is worth visiting even if the coaster isn't ready!

I love how they haven't released a full rendering/pov yet for this ride. I've seen the construction pics but still don't really have an idea what the layout is so It's gonna be nice to be surprised for a change.

Yeah I've been there 3 times before and yes it is such a great park but I probably wouldn't take time away from the kids Disney trip unless we could get on Gwazi. Fingers crossed.

Parents just told me they booked a house in Cape Coral in mid May for a week and want me to meet them there so looks like I'm going to get to ride this bad boy. Haven't been since Cheetah Hunt was brand new.
