They seem to be high tailin it on the first and second launch areas. Maybe we will see them do a little of the rock work in the trenches before installing track. Cheetah Hunt doesn't look very difficult to build. I remember certain parts of Maverick going up very fast. Looking forward to seeing the Tower come together or as I like to say, the Figure Eight Tophat.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

Hey guys, been a while since I been on TPR (damn near a year), so this is my first time hearing about the new coaster. Sorry if my reactions are a bit late, but wow! I definitely have to reason to visit Busch Gardens again after 3 (or 4?) years. I love that's its pretty lengthy, has 3 launches and I wasn't expecting a heart-line roll when watching the promo vid, but I like. This looks like it will be an AWESOME ride at night! As far as the name they can call it "Unnga Buunga" for all i care and I would still ride it. :lol: Also this will be my very first time experiencing an Intamin coaster, period. Being a resident in B&M-ville, Florida, it'll be interesting to finally ride one of these Intamin beasts. :)

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

I might be going here for the first time in a few months, How are the coasters here? I heared that Gwazi is pretty rough and jerky, but what about Kumba, Montu, Scorpion, and, Sheikra. I hear Montu and Sheikra are awesome. Kumba I hear is good, Scorpion ok, Gwazi rough and jerky. What are you're opinions. I'm worried about blacking out on Montu's second loop because it is the size of a Batman or Nemesis loop and I black out on those too. What about Sheikra's Immelmann. Is that a gray out inversion? I went on Griffon and I grayed out a little bit in the immelmann. My main concern is Montu's second loop. How is it. Hows is the first loop. Do you gray out.

The new ride logo (or title package) has been posted to the official ride website.

Something just hit me, sorry if it's already been said before. Does anyone else think that it was named Cheetah Hunt because the wild mouse Cheetah Chase is right next door? It would provide some separation between the two rather than just having two totally different cheetah themed rides.
Cool logo, too, by the way! Busch always seems to know what they're doing.

"Lieutenant Crunch?"

^It has already been stated that Busch Gardens is considering changing the name and theme of Cheetah Chase in order to reduce confusion within the park.

Gwazi has gotten rough over the years. I was there for the media day opening and it was great. The experience isn't the typical GCII woodie which I love :p . This ride was pre Millennium Flyer trains. Montu and Sheikra are great :lmao: . I've had good and bad rides on Kumba. It's really not too bad for it's age. I can't wait for their new ride to open. Another Intamin I'm sure I'll love :Pr .
Coasternut,
