    Tigris will be North America's tallest hybrid roller coaster when it opens next year

    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 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.
