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 | edit source]

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

History[edit | edit source]

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.

Design[edit | edit source]


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