I'm going to Florida next week, and a trip to BGT is a must. Does anyone know if Cheetah Chase has opened yet?

CoasterGirl....the last word from BGT was "opening in February". The latest pics I saw suggest that construction is likely completed by now and they're probably just waiting on the State to come down and cert. the ride. As a former State of FL employee, (now we're just UF, the state is hip-deep in privatization) I can tell you that *nothing* gets "rush" priority in FL State Gov't.

My advice: Go and have a great time, and *expect* that CC won't be opened yet....IF you're lucky enough to catch CC open, be thankful....and make sure to let us know how it is...;)

bill, hoping for a LITTLE less braking than WM had at BGT...

My only Wild Maus(BGW) ride was on March 22, 2003

If our trip to Florida falls a certain way - I'll ride Cheetah Chase on March 22, 2004

Thus concludes 'Gonch's Stupid Fact That Nobody Cares About' Corner :)

I don't know if it will open *next week*, but it should be open soon enough... Cheetah Chase

I'll be there last weekend in February, so I'm hoping it will be open. It was closed when we went to BGW last spring.

Latest commercials say March. Testing has just also begun. Here's a pic of the testing.
