Photos from Busch Gardens Tampa show foundation work and the arrival of the trains for the new wild mouse roller coaster, Cheetah Chase. The ride is being relocated from Busch Gardens Williamsburg.

Well, can't say I'll miss Wild Maus but I'm glad BGT is getting something. Where exactly will this be located?

It is going up in the place of the Crazy Camel (Chance Trabant)

There really is *almost* no room there though....the access road, the Phoenix, and the waste of space taking up the former Dolphin show (R.L Stine) pretty much form a border around the Camel....wondering if theaccess road is going to have to go around the new ride....might prove beneficial since Scorpion's station has needed a re-do for the last ten years....;)

Their is room back there. Enough to fit this mouse and a pathway. phenix is not moving but Crazy Camel had to go to fit it in. Their is enough room for the coaster and a path for the walkway. I seen it on my way home.
I agree that Scorpion should get a rehab and upgrade, as long as they do not replace the cars. Repaint it back to it's glorious colors like they did with python.

LOL, the difference figment, is that Scorpion is a "glorious" RIDE. Ridership is WAY higher than Python, and I think it's only partly attributable to the horrid location of Python.
As for CC's location, I guess I'll have to look BEHIND the Camel area next time I'm down there...to get a view from the skyride...as often as I've ridden Camel, this is certainly an improvement.
Now that I think about it, I'm forced to wonder...one employee mentioned a kiddie coaster AND a stand-up in the "next few years". I sure thought it was pure *bunk* I mean, who buys a stand-up NOW? But, a Wilde Maus sure COULD qualify as a kiddie...

From what I have heard Cheetah Chase is the start of a nice sized expansion in the next few years. Some "lands" will be expanded, with others getting complete face-lifts. Lets hope they do the same with BGW.
