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.
