Holy crap you nerds are a tough crowd.  It looks like a coaster that will make me hoot and holler the entire time I'm on it while simultaneously trying to throw my fat ass as far from the train as pos

It means that you can look forward to a fun-filled day riding Kumba, Montu, Cheetah Hunt and Sheikra and while you're in line for one of those you might be able to watch an Iron Gwazi POV on your phon

I actually agree with many of you talking about how the RMC's are all very similar.  And that's fine. There's nothing wrong with building a ton of very similar kick ass rides when most people who ride

Awesome to see Cheetah Hunt has been "powered up"... its coming soon!

 

...and I've watched that baby cheetah video SO many times now... I've been showing it off to all the people I work with and having them fall in love too... its "big" round head is just SO damn adorable... and its "chirping" is too cute... can't wait to see both (coaster and baby) of them "run"...

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay has sent us a press release and hi-res photos from the ride envelope pull-through of the first train of Cheetah Hunt.

 

After bolting in the final piece of Cheetah Hunt’s 4,429’ track just last week, Busch Gardens’ design & engineering team are losing no time in getting the mega-attraction’s trains on the track for the first round of testing.

 

Yesterday, crews began the slow process of using cranes and pulleys to drag the car around the track. This initial testing is the park’s way of making sure the car glides smoothly along the entire length of the ride, as well as checking that the “ride envelope” – the space around the car and rider with arms fully extended – has plenty of clearance.

 

This drag testing will take an estimated 3 to 4 days to complete and is the first step to having Cheetah Hunt ready to pounce on Friday, May 27.

^Ditto! These are some of the most awesome-looking trains I've seen. I REALLY need to figure out a way to get down to Tampa this summer!

Looks amazing! I'm heading out to the park on Sunday so I'm looking forward to seeing all the progress that has been made and who knows...maybe they will be able to launch by then?

I fail to see how the trains are any sexier than Blue Fire's... They're good but the BEST? Really? Raptor's at Gardaland's are also "sexier", i'd argue!

 

Blue Fire does have some snazzy looking trains, but they are a bit too bland. I haven't seen up close pictures of Raptor's trains yet. All I know is, CH's trains look like cheetahs, and cheetahs are gorgeous.
