Huh??? They can't stand their own ride being better than one of their other rides?

Maybe this will be rolled out to other Dive Machines (G5 and Oblivion) eventually? If it is seen as a success, it would perhaps be a good way to re-market the ride.

However, it remains to be seen if the floorless shuttles actually improve the ride.

Will being floorless actually make it better? It looks like the first row will be a lot different, but what about the back rows? I'll have to wait and judge for myself when I get a chance to go back there.

Cool. I'll get to ride a Floorless Dive Machine this year.
Just because yours is smaller doesn't make you less of a man. Unless we're talking about your brain.

I have...mixed feelings about this change. I love that they will be able to re-market this and get tons of stupid GP who think its a brand new ride. But I really would have liked to keep Griffon a little more unique for a while then made the change to floorless. Its a good idea but it just bothers me a bit is all....

I don't get the fuss, almost half of the posters on this thread have already been on Sheikra,. why not expireince something new, whether it be a new credit, or a disgrace to the original ride, its more than you've been on so far, why not just enjoy it!. If bad press and feedback seem to prevail, then i'm sure, BGT will have no problem, let alone the recources to "fix"\"change" it...

But it only makes a REAL difference to the front row, not row 2 and 3. Which means the line for front row will get even longer.
