Cheetah Hunt at Busch Gardens, Tampa
- Hop on top of Busch Garden’s cheetah as it pursues its prey
- Experience adrenaline-pumping speeds of up to 64 mph
- See the fastest land animal in action at the nearby Cheetah Run
If you can’t get enough of Florida’s high-speed rollercoasters then you’ll love Busch Garden’s super speedy Cheetah Hunt. With a top speed of up to 64mph, as well as nerve-wracking hill climbs followed by drops of up to 130ft, this Busch Gardens favourite is not for the faint-hearted! While on the ride, you’ll experience just what it’s like to be to be a cheetah chasing its prey. With high speeds, twists, turns, and launches, your adventure will take you on an impressive 90 second, 4,440 ft chase.
Take in the spectacular views from the top of the ride before dropping down into the rocky gorge. Be prepared to do whatever it takes to catch prey as you experience launches followed by falls. Once you’ve experienced the life of a cheetah for yourself, why not learn a little more about the species too? The Cheetah Run, located in the same exhibit, gives you the opportunity to see the slick and speedy animals spring across plains.
Cheetah Hunt is at Busch Garden in Tampa, approximately an hour’s drive from Orlando. Riders must be at least 48” (approx. 122cm) tall. You can also beat the queues with a Quick Queue pass.
Operating hours vary but usually start at 10:00 AM and finish between 6:00 PM –9:00PM. The full schedule is available on the Busch Gardens website.
