Cheetah Hunt roller coaster at Busch Gardens open again

TAMPA — The Cheetah Hunt roller coaster at Busch Gardens reopened Friday, two days after 16 people got stuck on it.

The ride's safety systems performed as designed during testing, the park said in a statement.

On Wednesday, the roller coaster stalled shortly after leaving the station. Riders were stuck for about an hour until Tampa Fire Rescue got them off.

Busch Gardens had hoped to reopen the ride Thursday, but it remained closed as the park continued to investigate.
