So, plans for BGT's official 2011 project are continually leaking. Sources verify the name to be "Cheetaka," and that it will obviously be themed to cheetahs with launch sections and a new cheetah exhibit.

Do you guys think this project will be something like what we see up here in Williamsburg. Rumors have been indicative that something like a launch may be in play here. Share your thoughts and rumors about the BGT expansion that you have heard below.

I'm pretty excited about this new ride. I plan on taking a trip down to Tampa either this october or waiting until next may/june. Any rumors as to when the ride will be done? It should be done FAST. Winking

Yes, horror, fright, gore! We need more EVIL!

So I'm hoping that this thread can be used for updates and pictures about the BGT project so that we can guess about what will be coming up to Williamsburg. We can safely infer that the coasters will be sister rides. So far we know:

-Cheetah themed
-Multi-launched
-At least 4,000 ft long
-Green track
-Yellow supports

Please feel free to add to this compilation, I'm probably missing info as I am not following the project that closely, hence why I want this area of the forums to provide some info about it. This will also be a place to put in the codes for the online clips for buschgardens2011.com so we can sneak some peaks. So far, we have:

Clip 1: CHASE
Clip 2: RUSH
Clip 3: GRACE

"Chase" and "Rush" make sense to me, but "Grace" is quite quizzical to me.

The fourth code is now in. It is POWER. This clip shows off one of Cheetaka's launches and also, an inversion! Clip 5 now appears on the site, but of course, it is locked. What do you guys think of the new development? How does this relate to our own Project 2012?

So, news was recently announced for the ride. It will not be named Cheetaka, as previously thought, instead it will be called Cheetah Hunt. Personally, I hate the name and think that it is the only bad roller coaster name a Busch park has ever come up with (aside from the coasters at SWSA). The press release notes the ride will attain a maximum height of 102 feet with its largest drop coming in at 140.

Questions? Comments? Concerns? "Colorful" Language? (That was for you, Swift.) Tongue

The restraints that they put on the ride are going to make or break the ride. If they are i305-like Intamin OTSR the ride is doomed.

I read somewhere that the height limit was 48 in, would it be possible for this type of coaster to have restraints like Millennium Force?

They mentioned the restrains will be similar to Kingda Ka's restraints on their facebook page, but have since deleted it. Now they just mention that it will be a lap bar. looks like the I305 soft restraints.

The logo is out and...it looks like crap.

Not interesting at all. I'm still sure that Cheetaka would have opened up the opportunities for a more dynamic logo. But this....ugh. I'm hoping it is just a prototype logo or something.
