Also part of the new mega-attraction at Busch Gardens Tampa is Cheetah Run, home to 14 of the agile cats who inspired the project. The new habitat is reminiscent of the ruins of an ancient temple, and features more than 11,000 square feet of grassland, natural rock formations, shaded alcoves, a waterfall and a 220-foot path for the cheetahs to do what they do best -- run. Several times each day, Busch Gardens' animal care experts will conduct sprints with the cheetahs, using a motorized lure system to stimulate the cats' natural instinct to chase. Glass-panel viewing windows allow guests to get closer than ever before to these highly endangered animals.
