Excellent, Erik--the "floorless experience" on BGE's Griffon is great, too (unless you're sitting in the middle seat, which has a little yellow platform under it). I like how the two ride's color schemes are reversed--red track/blue trains for Sheikra, blue track/red trains for Griffon.
I'm looking forward to taking a spin on the "new" Sheikra in October. The "old" one was pretty dang cool.
I'll get there soon to ride it... It's not really a ride I'd rush out to ride now (Even though I was there for opening day of the floored SheiKra). After riding Griffon, this would seem less... but still fun.

That is a really good question, I really do not know and forgot to ask. They were only running 2 trains for the event so they were only using the back section to load people onto the train. I have to admit that I never really paid attention to the front area, but I assume its there. If it is not, then SheiKra will have serious capacity problems.
they still have 2 train loading. The only thing i really dislike is they could have put a slope in for the station floor. you have to take a step up to get onto the metal platform to walk over the track in the station. i almost fell a few times walking onto the train.
they put orange tape on to warn people later in the afternoon.
