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

^ I didn't mean it like that. I just thought that it would be a 52 inch or 54 inch ride. Sorry! Cheetah Hunt was amazing but it could've been better if it was faster, do you not agree? They probably did that so more KIDS can ride. That's all I meant. Not like Cheetah Hunt is a baby ride. Are you crazy?

 

How is that a bad thing again? A family coaster that kids can ride with adults that looks fun and has a few inversions? The ride looks perfectly fine the way it is.

I didn't say Cheetah Hunt was a bad ride! OMFG! You know what I meant!!! God! Sorry for pointing out a opinion. Good lord. People are harsh.

 

People are just giving you a hard time, but your heated reaction gives further ammunition for people to play with you. People have a certain sense of humor at TPR and while we welcome you here, we do warn that if that kind of humor isn't your cup of tea, this might not be the place for you.

 

That being said, let's continue to keep things friendly and level. Opinions are fine, but arguments over whether this coaster is a family ride or a thrill ride don't need to get heated. Remember, we're talking about theme parks here! These things are supposed to be fun!

They've been making a lot of childish additions like Jungala, Sesame Street, Cheetah Hunt...

Just choose your words better, or learn to laugh at your mistakes. Kids, think before you type.

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

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. 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. Overall a pretty good experience: 8.5/10.

 

I thought Gwazi was a lot better then before sooooooooo much smoother. 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.

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

 

Thanks! Looks like a blast, either way.

I am definitely going to be checking this show out, can't avoid anything that promises me some cool acrobatics, and from that preview this show has a lot of that. Thank you Busch, can't wait to see it, and ride Cheetah Hunt at night again, of course.

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

 

I've never seen any single rider line at Busch Gardens.

Apparently the single rider line for Cheetah Hunt is open sporadically, and I've been told to ask at the entrance and they'll let you know if it's open or not.
