My family and I went to Busch Gardens today. We've been many times, but for one reason or another hadn't ridden SheiKra, the newest ride.
In case you're not familiar with the park, SheiKra is a roller coaster that carries riders up 200 feet at 45 degrees, then hurtles them 70 mph back toward the ground at a 90-degree angle. It is the first coaster of its kind in the Americas and only the third in the world.
SheiKra is the first dive coaster to incorporate an Immelmann loop, a water feature, and a second 90-degree 138-foot drop through an underground tunnel. SheiKra also includes a 360-degree climbing carousel. 3,188 feet of steel track offers a total ride time of just over three minutes.
This is what it felt like...
It was soooo much fun.
