Cheetah Hunt at Busch Gardens

This triple launch rollercoaster is inspired by the World’s fastest animal – the cheetah! You’ll soar high above the park, before racing down along the ground through a rocky gorge.

Did you know? At a length of 4,400 feet, Cheetah Hunt is the park’s longest thrill ride attraction.

In 1st place… SheiKra

Best Busch Gardens Tampa Rides - Sheikra

A firm favourite among thrill-seekers, it’s easy to see why SheiKra topped our poll. It has not one, but TWO 90-degree vertical drops, plus heights of up to 200 feet and a top speed of 70mph.

Did you know? When it first opened in 2005, SheiKra was the longest, tallest, and fastest Dive Coaster in the World!
