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.

Its still setup for dual loading. Everything is in place and all the trains have been converted. The shed was open in the early morning and you could see the other trains are ready. Loading will be the same as before and literally you dont notice the floor coming up or the gates crossing it is a fast smooth operation. I wonder how the lines are today, if there is an increase or just the normal amount. I bet its pretty buisy over there.
Here is the front load bay.

I wish they made it more like Griffon with 10 across while they were at it. Oh well, at least Sheikra is back open, I missed it much last week.

Here is one more of Eric before he got to take a spin on SheiKra. He's a really nice guy and we had a nice talk while waiting to board. BTW, I'm the kid from websitefullofdouchebags... :)

It looks almost if you would really get the shaft if you end up in the middle seats. Kinda takes away from the whole floorless ideal. I liked the ride when it opened but it was far from the best in the park. I would still have to give that honor to Montu. Too bad i am no longer living in Orlando and now it is a 23 hour drive to get there from here! :cry:

I know more about donkeys than women!

Looks like you were having a lot of fun down I 75 away from the Swamp. The video was well done.
Beer... It helps coasters go higher and faster!

Hey nice, I'm in multiple photos of yours... especially when King was talking to mark, and the NBC WFLA 8 live dive train.

great photos (I was snickering figuring i would end up in one photo here...)

I loved the experience.

looks like you also got our live dive in the shots of SheiKra falling...
