Busch Gardens Tampa: Cheetah Hunt – Cheetah Run
Rating: * * * 1/2
Type: Animal Habitat
Short Take: A fun display when the cats are at play
For those still unwilling to ride the coaster, the adjacent Cheetah Run exhibit makes an ideal place to wait for the more adventuresome in your party.
Much like the aquarium incorporated into SeaWorld's Manta coaster, the designers have ingeniously integrated an animal habitat around the ride, with careful soundproofing to prevent the animals from being disturbed; much like your house cats, these cheetahs seem to largely ignore the tourists whizzing past, along with almost everything else besides food. A dozen of the African cats, including from time to time cubs, are on view through giant glass panels. Keepers appear several times a day to feed the animals and exercise them with sprints along their 220-foot long running path. For the curious, touch-screen computers provide additional information on these amazing animals.
