Cheetah Hunt, Busch Gardens Tampa's newest roller coaster, is set to open on May 27. The ride is already testing with riders, mostly employees and members of the press.
Read more and see video from WTSP/Tampa Bay.
Looks like a winner and that cheetah kitten is pretty freaking cute.
This is the sleeper hit of the year. I'm calling it now.
I like how the trainers are playing chase with cheetah cubs in that video - now throw a full size one in there, I'll pay to see that!
That turnaround really looks like a unique element into that drop. Looks like fun!
I was wishing it was open when we were there this past October. Looking forward to it next time we make the the trip from PA. Its also cool that its only a 48" height limit. We keep telling our daughter that we'll go back when she'll ride everything. Hoping that is sooner than later.
The coaster itself looks incredibly awesome, and damn those are some cute cats.
How can it be a sleeper hit when everyone talks about it? :)
Yahoo lists Cheetah Hunt alongside sites like Nanjing Sifang Art Museum, Orbit Tower and Capital Gate.
That's completely strange. Which of these things is not like the other?
Assuming all goes well, I should have some ride reports by HWN...find me for a ride report (you might have to "buy" me a sweet tea though)! ;)
I want a POV already.
LK - Front-seat POV just now got posted to the FB page of "Orlando Attractions Magazine". :)
Awesome! thanks! Awesome! Awesome! lol
I just watched it. Looks really fun; better than I expected.Last edited by LostKause, Wednesday, May 25, 2011 2:27 PM
Wow, it's long! That looks like a ton of fun. The "tree" seemed kind of goofy, but I like it. Neat chance to look around a bit.
D'oh - thanks DVN, didn't occur to me to check their YouTube account...
The tree looks hella-awkward to me (as it did before the track even got placed)...but it IS a nice chance to view the layout.
This looks like a dream coaster made in No Limits! I'm impressed!
Looks pretty sweet. I'm disapointed my visit to Orlando was earlier in the year. I doubt I'll make it back anytime soon.
