Cheetah Hunt Triple Launch Roller Coaster

Cheetah Hunt Triple-Launch Roller Coaster is the longest thrill ride at Busch Gardens in Tampa, Florida.

Spanning 4,429 feet, it’s also the park’s newest ride and has been met with overwhelmingly positive reviews.

Cheetah Hunt reaches speeds of 60 mph and features a series of winding turns, corkscrews and drops.

Unlike other roller coasters, it does not start with an initial ascent and drop.

Drops Twists

Instead, the ride features three distinct launches where you’re thrust into smaller drops, twists and curves over the long track.

Just like it’s animal namesake, the ride gets off to a quick start at its first launch and right when it feel like things are about to get gentle and smooth, you’re quickly thrust into the second launch, which is the fastest and most exciting part of the ride.

The scenery along Cheetah Hunt’s course is unprecedented and evokes imagery from the African plains.

At several points in the ride, you’ll find yourself racing over rushing water features, a bridge and through craggy cavern, gorges and canyons.

The ride lasts 3 1/2 minutes and takes you to a maximum height of 102 feet over the park.

The largest drop is 130 feet and you can expect to feel up to 4G’s as you whizz your way along the track’s dizzying course.

Riders must be at least 48” to ride on Cheetah Hunt and Busch Gardens’ Quick Queue is available for those who prefer not to wait in long lines.
