    The latest addition to BGT :)

    Looks good from pics/videos I have seen.

    Am still thinking it will be hard pushed to beat SheiKra though.

    Great ride - smooth as glass - not high or noticeably fast but an excellent coaster - and novel. As we arrived at 9am they had the cheetah cub in with a large dog playing ball, they seemed to be at ease with each other which was great to watch - no interaction with the animals and the coaster despite the hype - but worth doing.

    Glad you enjoyed it :)

    Am definately looking forward to it myself, looks like a well constructed ride - Like the way they have built it to go through the Rhino Rally area...

    Indeed - the old Rhino Rally river is a series of banked curves and feels like ski turns where your weight shifts side to side to make the bends - unlike any coaster I have ever ridden. The hops and launches are smooth and transitions very natural, except the last turn before the brakes which feels too fast, but well worth the visit.

    Fantastic Coaster. Very smooth and the launches are great. I still prefer Shiekra (and Gwazi as it is old school !!) bit cheetah hunt is up there with the best in Florida

    Always nice to hear good reviews on a new ride :)

    Roll on September when I can get on this myself.

    The ride does look amazing! I love this park. From the perfectly manicured landscaping, all the animals and then the great rides... what else is left!
