All this Sheikra/Griffon talk is all fine and well.

This was in Sundays news paper...apparently Sheikra and Griffon are twins.

It is a good move for them, a business move. Take their best ride, change it, and get all kinds of national attention and public relations. A great business move, and will have me coming back to the park sooner.

I'm going to BGA the Friday on the week after the trains arrive. (Sorry if it's confusing; I mean the week after the week of Memorial Day, on Friday.)

I will be in Tampa the first week of July and that will be my first ride on Sheikra.

But good lord I hope it isn't jam packed.

Sheikra is never an issue for lines, as I assume that many people are just too afraid of it. You can ride it again, and again, with no issues. Yeah Sheikra!

Witch Sheikra are you riding? I went there last saturday, the 12th. Right when the park opened, for about 1 hour it was a walk on after that it was one helluva line! Not that many people are scared of SheiKra.

Hell I got four rides in that day, boy was it exciting!

^Obviously, it depends when you go and what time of the day. I rode SheiKra two weeks ago on a Tuesday, it had a two train wait till around 2 pm and a one train wait the rest of the day. ...oh and that was for the front, the back was a walk-on the whole day. =)

On June 16th 2007, Sheikra is reborn at Busch Gardens Africa located in Tampa, Florida as it reopens with a new twist. The coaster cars are now floorless. Busch Gardens Africa (BGA) held a media day on June 15th, to allow us to experience SheiKra "floorless" a day early, as well as an opportunity to interview BGA's General Manager and Executive Vice President Dan Brown and its Vice President of Design and Engineering, Mark Rose.

You can experience this event by checking out the photographs as well as watching the attached video. The video does feature offride as well as a complete onride video of myself riding SheiKra giving commentary as I experience the ride. So sit back and enjoy the new SheiKra experience.
