Busch Gardens Tampa Bay has sent us a press release and photos about the completion of Cheetah Hunt's trackwork!
Construction crews worked into the evening on Monday to install the final piece of track that completes Cheetah Hunt’s epic 4,429-foot run – a record length among Busch Gardens Tampa’s coasters. The final section, which completes the “jump” over the Skyride’s cables, was bolted into place just before 9:30 p.m.
Even with the completion of the track, however, the work is far from over in preparing the new mega-attraction for its May 27th grand opening. Crews will spend the next two months finishing the intricate sculpting – or “theming” – of the coasters’ surrounding architecture.
Construction also continues on innovative Cheetah Run habitat, which will house more than a dozen of the highly endangered cats and offer guests unique opportunities to get up-close and witness a cheetah’s speed first-hand during daily sprints.
Change the scheme, Alter the mood! Electrify the boys and girls if you would be so kind!
^though I am no expert, It looked like the set up they had for the cables currently was temporary. I expect some type of arm extension to be put on each side of the two towers in question of lowering instead of shorter towers. Hope that made sense.
^^Maybe when the cable car is on the line, it weighs it down some? I agree, definitely not much clearance.
Thanks for those pictures all! Drop + CH complete =
