Busch Gardens Park President Rides Cheetah Hunt For First Time

Tampa, FL – A year after donning a hard hat and standing in front of pile of dirt to record a YouTube video, Busch Gardens Tampa Park President Jim Dean, took his first ride on the park's newest attraction – Cheetah Hunt.

On Monday, Dean had the opportunity to ride the roller coaster for the first time with Busch Gardens’ VP of Marketing, Gerard Hoeppner. Following their front-row ride, Dean commented “We have another winner here.”
