Inside the Ride SheiKra Busch Gardens Tampa Bay

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay has a reputation for building some of the best roller coasters in the nation. From the world’s largest to a coaster that reaches speeds of up to 60 miles per hour and even one that has continually been voted “world’s best,” this Tampa Bay theme park knows how to create one thrilling roller coaster. One such Busch Gardens roller coaster is SheiKra, the ferocious, floorless dive coaster that takes riders on a heart-pounding twist and loop-filled adventure you’ll want to ride again and again. Here’s an insiders look at SheiKra:

Located in the Stanleyville section of the park, SheiKra is the second tallest coaster in the southeast and is the park’s first and only floorless dive coaster. To give you a better idea just how intense this coaster really is, SheiKra got its name from a shirka, which is an Asian-African hawk that is known to dive straight down for its prey! Get ready to do some diving!

SheiKra begins as riders climb a 47-degree 200-foot hill to the edge of a 90-degree drop where you’ll come to a sudden stop as your feet dangle in the air. For what seems like forever, you’ll hang there waiting anxiously for what you know is inevitable – a drop. Except this isn’t an ordinary drop, it’s an Immelmann loop which puts riders into a half loop and then through a half twist before curving out the opposite direction from where you came from. From the Immelmann, your train takes an upward turn into the mid-course where you’ll be able to catch your breath. But don’t get too comfortable, just when your knuckles have regained their color you’ll enter a second drop, which is set at 81 degrees. Your train then takes a wide turnaround and swoops down into a splashdown area before heading through a final helix to the end of the ride. Whew!

And did we mention you’ll experience all of that as your feet dangle in the open air? The fact that there is no floor on SheiKra adds a certain kind of excitement and slight fear as you go through the speedy twists, turns and loops of this coaster. Absolutely unlike any coaster at the park or anywhere else for that matter, SheiKra is a must ride and once you take that first floorless adventure, you’re sure to want to ride it again and again!
