Cheetah Hunt Fact Sheet

Come join the hunt for excitement and experience a new breed of speed at Busch Gardens.

This new mega-attraction begins at Cheetah Run. Here at this crossroads of cultures, you’ll learn firsthand why the Cheetah has been celebrated for centuries. This ancient realm puts you just inches away from the world’s fastest land animals. Look into their eyes. See them run. It’s a new point-of-view guaranteed to get your heart racing.

Next take a seat on Cheetah Hunt and join nature's fastest and most agile predator as it races across the Serengeti. This one-of-a-kind coaster will climb high above the African landscape, then race down along the ground and through a rocky gorge. With another burst of acceleration, you’ll leap over awestruck bystanders and head for home. It’s a 4,429’ sprint that will take your breath away.
