I don't think people are really complaining or whining...I just think it's amusing!

Like others have said...the two rides don't share any share the same market so none of the GP will even know. I can see it pissing off a few BGW Fanboys, but what's the problem with that?!?!

I like Sheikra a lot, I think the whole floorless thing is a bad gimmick. It really won't make a difference to me!

Florida has just recieved a brand new credit! If it beats Griffon to the use of floorless trains on a dive machine, then I guess it means that we get the first floorless dive machine after all! =)

It is a weird gimmick. Those trains really don't need to be floorless. You can't touch the floor anyway unless you're 9 feet tall. Or Casey. :P

I don't know if that is a complement or not? I haven't broken any kiddie coasters, but I do consider them to be credits...

I wouldn't turn down a ride on the Shamu Express if it meant that I would have another credit! I am a credit monger.

Would you really count Sheikra as a new credit just because it got new trains?

I think there needs to be some sort of defining factor that would constitute a ride being considered a new credit. Are Steel Phantom & Phantom's Revenge seperate credits? To this I would say yes, as there was modification to the track as well as the trains.

Just changing the trains doesn't qualify IMHO. In all actuallity I don't think it will change the ride experience at all. The height of the seats gave it a feel of floorless anyway.

Kraken used to have floors? I thought it was built floorless. :?r

While I would be impressed about how long it would take, I still seriously think this is a waste of money.

Busch, why didnt you get Millennium Flyers for Gwazi? :(
-My butt has touched 112 roller coasters, how unfortunate.

^^I admit that I count KBF's old Motorcycle Chase and Wacky Soapbox Racers as two credits, even though they follow the same track layout. I think switching from the "motorcycles" to log-like "soapbox cars" gave the ride a completely different feel.

I doubt that I'd do the same for Sheikra, though--I don't think the floorless trains will do much to change the "feel" of that awesome ride.
