Harry Potter Ride Pulls Huge Audience, Other Theme Parks Set to ExpandPosted by Robert Sabrkhani on Sunday, May 22nd, 2011 at 8:03pm.
Throughout the year the Orlando area's biggest parks will see new renovations and major new attractions going up. Three in particular of special note are Sea World, Busch Gardens (in Tampa, FL), and Walt Disney World. One name you don't see on the list is Universal that this year saw the addition of the wildly popular Harry Potter ride which is expected to keep up it's torrid pace of boosting its visitor numbers, posting especially high numbers with International tourists.
The most significant change will be with Busch Gardens who looks to maintain it's mark as Florida's number 1 roller coaster park. Their new ride "Cheetah Hunt" is their response to growing competition by sticking with it's thrill ride roots. Being 4,429 ft long will make it the longest roller coaster in the state now surpassing Animal Kingdom's Expedition Everest at Walt Disney World, by only four feet.
It is so big, you cannot camouflage it," remarked Busch Gardens Tampa Bay Spokesperson Jill Revelle on the size of Cheetah Hunt.
