Busch Garden's newest attraction . . . Cheetah Hunt

Do you love roller coasters?

If you do, Busch Gardens in Tampa, Florida has become a haven for roller coaster enthusiasts.  Just when you think they could not possibly squeeze in another roller coaster . . . here comes another one!

Here is a video on the newest attraction . . . Cheetah Hunt

Thrill seekers will be able to immerse themselves in a new jungle realm inside Busch Gardens soon.
Busch Gardens officials introduced the park's new attraction Wednesday - a new ride called Cheetah Hunt. The centerpiece will be a new roller coaster.
The ride will use repelling magnets to launch riders from 0 to 60 mph in seconds. The ride, almost an entire mile in length, will repeat the launch twice more during the ride.
Enthusiasts will board the ride in the historic monorail station, which will be completely renovated as part of the new attraction.
It will feature an African landscape and animals as well. The adjacent area that formerly housed the Budweiser Clydesdales will now be home to cheetahs and give visitors an up close experience with the animals.
The area and ride is expected to open in the spring.
