Cheetah Hunt, a triple-launch roller coaster, is the latest major addition to the african-themed park. It carries riders high above, and then races down along the ground through a rocky gorge. It is the park’s longest thrill ride and also innovatively integrates the coaster next to the Cheetah Run animal habitat. Guests can get closer than ever to tigers in Jungala and soar through the air on Montu. For a behind-the-scenes look at how they care for animals, the new Animal Care Center welcomes guests to closely observe the veterinary care and treatment they privide every day. The newest show, Iceploration, combines theatrical puppets with acrobatic ice skaters and animal stars to inspire audiences through a journey to the four corners of the earth. The park also offers seasonal events including the terrifying Howl-O-Scream and Christmas Town. Just across the street is the Adventure Island water park.
