I have a questions about the stretch of track that goes thru the old Rhino Rally canyon, (RIP. I loved that ride but only got to ride it once). Which way did the jeeps go thru: the same direction Cheetah Hunt goes thru, or the other way? Just a random nerdy question :oops:

I believe the opposite. I never rode it with the water, but I think it was opposite of Cheetah Hunt.

Yes it went with the flow and Cheetah Hunt goes against it. Busch Gardens got that canyon part perfect. The water rushing toward you I think is one of the best visuals ever on a coaster. I hope coaster builders and parks notice how effective that part of the coaster is and repeat it. Nemesis must be awesome.

I got my first ride on cheetah hunt and the millennium fliers on Gwazi today! I waited about 75-80 minutes for cheetah hunt the first time with my group only for us to discover the single rider line! Then when my turn cam the ride broke a drive tire in the station so that was an ordeal. Anyway onto the ride I thought it was pretty good a more fun ride then thrilling enjoyable but, certainly not the next montu in terms of intensity. The "Airtime Parabola" was pretty good with the cleverly placed launch before. :airtime: The themeing was ok the cheetah rock was nice there were some other nice touches though, nothing stands out in my memory. The end was a little rough though surprisingly. :?r Overall a pretty good experience: 8.5/10.

I thought Gwazi was a lot better then before sooooooooo much smoother. :br I was surprised how big a deal the trains made in smoothness. Re-rideable now definitely and not painful! A little more airtime would have made a big difference though; still a solid 7/10 now.

There's a single rider line? I don't remember seeing that when I went.

I didn't know about a single rider line either. Where is it located.

It still may be experimental but, it was the line next to the main line (right side going in through the entrance) they were calling people who were already in line and you had to ask at the entrance as it is not marked.

Thanks! Looks like a blast, either way.
