Cheetah Hunt is really great. This new coaster has just opened at the end of May 2011, and it is already a huge hit. On the day that we visited (one week after the Grand Opening), the coaster had a 90-minute wait, and at the end of the day, at about 8 p.m., the ride still had a 45-minute wait. Mr. Kinkaid (DISASTER's producers) would say that this smells like a "Summer Blockbuster" ride.
Let's check out the ride together, with these off-ride pictures that we took from around the park:
The ride is so popular that Busch Gardens could not include the ride in the "Quick Queue" offer:
When you enter the Nairobi section of the park, Cheetah Hunt steals the attention, with its fabulous 8-figure:
Let's check out Cheetah Run, the new animal exhibit that was built together with the roller coaster
The theming that surrounds the place is absolutely gorgeous. It is has OTPN's seals of approval:
More fantastic theming:
Afterwards, they let out other young cheetahs:
They're really great animals:
And now, some pictures of the coaster itself and the queue area:

The ride's logo:
Right next to the coaster's entrance you can find the Skyride's new entrance, which seems to be a bit uncomfortable, as people enter and exit from the same, small passage (with two different lines, of course):
The queue area of the coaster has received only partial theming, but it works:
They're still working on some areas near the coaster:
Some coaster photos:
From the Skyride, you can really get some great pictures of the coaster:
It it so big that it's almost impossible to get the whole coaster in one picture!:
From the ground:
Once the ride is done, you enter through a store, where they have very technological photo-viewers:
Here, you can also find a huge selection of specific Cheetah Hunt merchandise:
A banner reminds us the ride's motto:
Cheetah Snacks is a new snack booth located near the entrance to Cheetah Hunt:
While we were there, they were preparing for the "Pretzel Coaster Build-off" event:
Going back to Cheetah Run, at dusk:
We'll close this update, with this pictures, that says it all:
And that's all for today.
Remember to check back OTPN later this week, for a full Busch Gardens general update!
