A floorless Bolliger & Mabillard dive machine, SheiKra drops riders 90 degrees straight down a 200-foot fall, reaching a top speed of 70 miles per hour. The top of the initial lift hill grants a spectacular view of landmarks, including downtown Tampa, the adjacent Adventure Island water park and the University of South Florida campus, before rolling right over the edge and pausing. The train holds for five nerve-testing seconds before being released down the 200-foot vertical drop, zooming along the ground and backing up into an Immelman inversion.

Coasting over the brake hill, the train barely pauses for the second drop, a 138-foot drop at 81 degrees, which takes guests through part of the African jungle ruins, under the splashdown area and over the Zambia Smokehouse.

Most B&M dive coasters are a one trick pony, but this is still fun. Just not worth a 60 minute wait.
