Sheikra Roller Coaster Video

This Sheikra roller coaster video may look vaguely familiar, because it is a very similar ride to yesterday’s video of Griffon. They are both vertical drop roller coasters (Sheikra was the first in the US) with a proper 90 degree drop, and there are just 5 of them around the world.

In 2007 Sheikra was converted into a floorless roller coaster – just to add to the thrill. You can find this ride at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, Florida.

The Griffon just beats the vertical drop of Sheikra by 5 feet with a 205 foot 90 degree drop compared to Sheikra’s 200 feet.

  1. Did I get that…no floor on the roller coaster?? That might be a bit too much for me. It seems a bit too much for some of the people riding, too.
