Now that (apparently) the REAL Cheetah is dead, maybe Cheetah Hunt should be re-themed in his honor. If management refuses to do so, the executives should be forced to ride Cheetah Hunt while having feces flung at them by angry coaster and chimpanzee enthusiasts.

Or said enthusiasts can just go to Valdosta, GA instead and ride the REAL Cheetah.

Jeff, I loved the crack about Windseekers versus a Toaster (although the way you described the toaster it sounded like Excali-toaster!). Very funny.

And Mike, I rode the "real" Cheetah back in May 2010. It was a hoot, and it is far and away the best ride at Wild Adventures, despite Herschend's best attempts to gradually improve the park.
