Busch Gardens makes official: SheiKra to go floorless
Written by Robert Niles
The announcement will come in a conference all at 10:30 Wednesday morning, but that's 7:30 a.m. L.A. time, and I'll be rushing to get the kids off to school then. So I'll jump the gun on news many of us already know about anyway.Tweet
Don't know the exact date yet, but I assume that the change on the SheiKra trains will come sometime after sister park Busch Gardens Europe debuts its B&M floorless dive coaster, Griffon, in May. That way, Griffon can retain the title as "world's first" of this model.
[FWIW, all the promotional material I've gotten from Busch on this announcement has been branded "Busch Gardens Tampa Bay," and not "Busch Gardens Africa." But the stuff I've been getting from Williamsburg has been using the new, continental name, "Busch Gardens Europe." Just noticed that. Is something up with this, or is BGT/A (wow, what an acronym *there*) just burning through old letterhead?]
