The shotgun burst that begins any decent roller coaster ride kicks the adrenalin into touch as you speed down vertical drops and tight, twisty corners. But why content yourself with one heart-stopping push, when you can have three? The Cheetah Hunt roller coaster at Busch Gardens in the world's first 'triple launch' rollercoaster, meaning you get that that thrilling injection of fun three times in one ride. Named after the fastest land animal in the world, the ride moves at speeds of 60mph, twists though a rocky gorge, plunges 37 metres into an underground trench and covers 1,349 metres from start to finish.
