When I first went on Cheetah hunt at Busch Gardens earlier this year the excitement was different but in a great way. This coaster is surrounded by actual cheetahs and themed perfectly to fit the ride, making it a perfect fit for families that are all willing to experience a roller coaster for the first time together. Cheetah hunt is the type of coaster that everyone can enjoy including the younger willing riders that are boarding a coaster for the first time. As it launches and twist its tame enough for everyone to enjoy and will have everyone smiling at the end of the ride.
