Just over an hour south of Orlando along Florida’s beautiful Gulf Coast, you’ll find yourself on the edge of Africa at Busch Gardens
in Tampa Bay. Experience up-close encounters with amazing animals, take a trek across the Serengeti Plains, test your courage on pulse-pounding coasters, or catch live entertainment all year long.
Be sure not to miss a new breed of speed. This mega-attraction begins at Cheetah Run. Here at this crossroads of cultures, you’ll learn firsthand why the Cheetah has been celebrated for centuries. This ancient realm puts you just inches away from the world’s fastest land animals. Look into their eyes. See them run. It’s a point-of-view guaranteed to get your heart racing. Next take a seat on Cheetah Hunt and join nature's fastest and most agile predator as it races across the Serengeti. This one-of-a-kind launch coaster climbs high above the African landscape, then race down along the ground and through a rocky gorge. With another burst of acceleration, you’ll leap over awestruck bystanders and head for home. It’s a 4,429’ sprint that will take your breath away.
