Cheetah Hunt is an Intamin multi-launched roller coaster located at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay in Tampa, Florida, USA. It opened on May 27, 2011.

Naming[edit]

The ride was originally going to be named "Cheetaka", but the named was scrapped, and "Cheetah Hunt" became the ride's official name.

History[edit]

In 2010, before the ride was officially announced, Busch Gardens began to release teaser videos. Each video contained a small, computer generated part of the ride. Each one would have a different part of the ride. After five videos, the ride was officially announced by the current park president, Jim Dean. The ride was completed in 2011 as one of Busch Gardens most stared attractions.

Design[edit]

Elements

Cheetah Hunt features three launches throughout the ride. Parts of the ride travel into trenches and over water.
