Cheetah Hunt Review - Busch Gardens Tampa

An underrated coaster with some awesome moments.

Cheetah Hunt

Busch Gardens Africa, Tampa, FL

Some great scenery and a fun multi-launch coaster.

Austin rides: in the front. 

Slow Start
A slow launch is a nice start to the ride, it's a fun little punch before the Cheetah really takes off.
This hill is fun! Doesn't kill the pace one bit.
While you may think the next element would kill the mood, it doesn't. Sitting in the front you get a nice 360 degree view of the park before plunging back down into a tunnel. It's an extremely fun coaster that is not often talked about, and one of the most interesting and visually pleasing top-hats around.

The river section is exciting and the return trip fits right into the fun nature of the ride as well. Nowhere are forces crazy on the ride, but fun-wise it is right at the top of the list! What are your thoughts on Cheetah Hunt?

 Final brake run thoughts: it's long, it's fun! I was surprised the top hat didn't kill the pacing, it actually was quite fun to hang up there for so long.

Where Austin ranks this ride: Not as good as Goliath at Walibi Holland, better than New Texas Giant at Six Flags Over Texas.
