2 years ago
SheiKra (/ˈʃiːkrə/, SHEE-krə) is a steel Dive Coaster roller coaster at the Busch Gardens Tampa Bay amusement park in Tampa, Florida, United States. The roller coaster was proposed by Mark Rose, vice-president of design and engineering for the park, and designed by Bolliger & Mabillard. The ride was planned to be 160 feet high, but the park's executives rejected this and the height was changed to 200 feet. SheiKra reaches a maximum speed of 70 miles per hour and has a total track length of 3,188 feet. It first opened on May 21, 2005, and was converted to a floorless roller coaster on June 16, 2007, following the opening of its sister Dive Coaster Griffon at Busch Gardens Williamsburg that year.
