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.

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. At this point, the new ride was known as Cheetaka.[1] After five videos, the ride was officially announced on October 13 by park president, Jim Dean.[2] 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, formerly occupied by the Rhino Rally tour ride.

Trains[edit | edit source]

5 trains with 4 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 16 riders per train.
