Travel to Timbuktu and you'll find young kids' favourite ride in the park, Cheetah Chase.
This fun-filled family coaster is inspired by the playful side of one of the coolest and the fastest cats on the planet.
This wild ride zips, zooms and climbs five stories into the air before bringing riders back down in a roar of laughter.
This favourite first coaster wraps around a winding path that's just fast enough for kids to want to hold on tight, yet fun enough for them to want to ride it again. And again. and again!
Four riders sit two by two and pull down lap bars in Cheetah Chase's station before they can begin their wild ride. Out of the boarding area, the track makes a tight L-turn heading left and leading right to the lift hill. The chain pulls the car up to a decent height of forty-six feet where it sends the carload dipping into a second left turn to start to get things going. From there, the coaster rolls along its first straightaway leading into a hairpin U-turn to give the ride the traditional wild mouse 'whip' sensation. Over another straightaway and Cheetah Chasers are sent through another hard turn towards the lift in the opposite direction, then braking slightly and on towards the third hairpin turnaround. Riders are taken around the next sharp curve and a fourth straightaway, getting them set for another hairpin to the right, followed by the same sequence of elements repeated twice more. The major run of hairpins complete, the track makes a 270-degree turnaround descending as it goes and feeding into a straightaway before the car hits a small hill onto a block-braking area parallel to the lift hill. Two 90-degree left-handers, and then passengers are sent down the ride's first and largest drop - a 25-foot plunge - that pulls right up into a climb under the blue track above for Cheetah Chase's first far turnaround. Down another drop parallel to the lift, then the track rises gradually into a 90-degree hairpin into some trim brakes. Ninety more degrees to the left, and then the ride dips, hops, and heads down an inclined brake run and around one last L-turn to the station.
