forward by a special magnetic design and flung to
the top of the tower in seconds. From there you
take a dive down the track and fly through sharp
turns, under waterfalls and through the jungle in
seconds. No one knows how to cover terrain faster
than the Cheetah Hunt coaster, only at Busch Gardens!

then, like the sub-Saharan
bird of prey for which it's named, you plunge straight
toward the ground, racing at speeds of more than
70 miles per hour. An Immelmann loop and a second
vertical drive into an underground tunnel end with
a surprise twist for those who look on -- because
with SheiKra, Even they cannot escape.
