I don't know if this is a typo or something, but for the coaster statistics it says Gwazi has 1 train. I'm going to BGT in July and i'm pretty sure Gwazi has more than one train, but it kinda got to me that if it does only have 1 train there's gunna be some long lines.

Gwazi has at least 4 trains. It has 2 trains per side. That means 2 Gwazi Lion trains, and 2 Gwazi Tiger trains. Gwazi is a duelling woodie, so it will always be running at least 2 trains at a time, 1 lion train, and 1 tiger train, but most likely it will be running all 4 trains. And when you get to the park, (Get there EARLY, or you may not get in at all!) you'll know why. It takes at least 2 days to see all of the animals and exhibits, and usually over an hour of waiting for anything that you want to ride, so be prepared for HUGE crowds, unless you go on a weekday during the off season. And yes, this park WILL refuse to let you in after around noon or so, because of the large amount of people already in the park, so get there as early as possible, or don't be surprised if they turn you away!

Does it have something to with the brakes going to the station? Beacuse I work at Valleyfair, they put new brakes on high roller just because of that now they can only run one train, because they think it will mess up the computer. High Roller has been there since 1976.

We just went last Thursday and had maybe a 15 minute wait the first time and less than 5 minutes the second time on.
We did them all and the only wait was on one of the water rides when we got hit by a big storm and everything shut down for a while. We had a total blast there. Though I think I'd avoid the Python if I go again...darn thing racked my noggin back and forth hard. I have to sometimes wonder if those who say they don't like coasters, think that because they try a smaller one like that first and then get a really rough ride and then believe they are all like that.
Anyways...Loved everything else about the park. ;)

I have been to BGT twice.
Two trains on each side. Not too bad. Dispatching sucks though.
I have never waited more than 25 mins for a BGT coaster, and I go during Spring Break
