Now open, experience a new breed of speed! This new mega-attraction begins at Cheetah Run, just inches away from the world's fastest land animals. It's a new point-of-view guaranteed to get your heart racing. Then join nature's most agile predator as it races across the Serengeti on Cheetah Hunt.

This winter, Busch Gardens will debut its biggest ice show ever. Iceploration combines world-class skaters, larger-than-life puppets, amazing costumes, original music and even animal stars to tell the story of tech-savvy pre-teen Austin and his grandfather - and old-world adventurer - who encourages him to put down the smartphone and "explore the world."
