In 2005, Busch Gardens Africa introduced the world to a one-of-a-kind experience: 200 feet up, 90 degrees straight down. And that was just the beginning.
On June 16, the adventure park will reintroduce SheiKra to the world with a new twist: “floorless” cars that allow riders an unobstructed view and a new level of adrenaline rush. The cars will continue to seat eight passengers across, three rows deep, but riders will no longer be able to brace themselves for the thrill of America’s first dive coaster.
SheiKra is the tallest roller coaster in Florida, and the first of its kind to incorporate an Immelmann loop, a second, 138-foot dive into an underground tunnel and a water-feature finale. SheiKra offers three minutes of over-the-edge excitement on more than half a mile of steel track and serves as the centerpiece of Busch Gardens’ Stanleyville area.
