The real reason why Gwazi is SBNO is because the park is running out of money. Gwazi according to Mark Rose costs $1 million to operate, and the new trains were probably a last ditch to try and increase intrest in the ride, which had limited success. With the cost cuts and everything, I'd expect Gwazi to get demolished by next year, then construction for another attraction to commence in the following year.b.mac said:Not the first time this has happened.Nicole said:You both are treading dangerously close to advocating illegal activity.
On a serious note the last time I rode Gwazi was 2006 when it was still using the PTC trains. It still is odd to me that BGT would go through the effort of buying new trains only to shut one side down and later on close it entirely. Also coming from someone who has had multiple rides SBNO in their home park, it's a hell of a lot more awkward than you think it is.

“We are still looking into what makes sense to replace Gwazi, which includes do we retrofit it with steel tracks,” said park spokesman Travis Claytor. “Gwazi is still standing. We haven’t made the decision on what to do with it. We have no time frame on when that decision will be made. We have a few other things we are working on, including that brand new attraction opening next year.”
