    First Drop Capacity Fun

    It dives like a dive coaster should. It has a nice layout. It has the proper dive restraints. It gives nice views of the park. It has a splashdown. But why then, is Griffon so much better? Baffling.

    First Drop Capacity Smoothness Too short

    So this this coaster is first off all amazing to look at and very scenic with good theming build around it. Also the station is very cool designed. The waiting time is always short because of these enormous trains having a huge capacity. While reaching the top the ride builds up anticipation for its first drop, which is in my opinion the best part of the ride. Also its extremely smooth and comfortable which makes it very fun to ride. You could ride this 10 times in a row. After the first drop there is an inversion and then already the mid course break followed by a second amazing drop into a pit, after that it goes into some curves and a splash down and thats it. Its like with all the B&M dive coasters, short but fun

    First Drop Location Layout Too short

    SheiKra, even after riding the likes of Griffon, Valravn, and Yukon Striker, is still my favorite dive coaster. It's the most dominant in the skyline, has the most deliberate and purposeful layout, and has the best theming and landscaping. The two drops have excellent airtime, the inversion is forceful at the start and has floater air in the exit, and there are several moments of strong positive forces. The water splash is the most beautiful I can think of, as is the stunning red and blue color scheme. It even has the best capacity, with a double loading station. Everything about this ride is perfect, and the only thing holding it back is the short duration. As the coaster that eliminated all my fears of coasters once and for all, I love SheiKra.

    Fun B&M dive. Great drop and Immelmann. Splashdown is great as well. Wish it was longer and a bit more unique from other B&M Dives.

    8.5 out of 10. vert angle drop of 90 degree is the star, little behind griffon between the two. major excitement on the two drops

    First Drop Disappointing!

    Superb engineering once again from B&M, but not a great ride. It's more of a looker from the ground; it is mostly contrived to look impressive from the ground (which it does!). Anything other than the front row misses out greatly. Sheikra is surrounded by other superlative rides, which biases my low score for this one, but then that's the challenge of trying to out-do yourself!

    First Drop Capacity Fun Too short

    SheiKra was one of the first coasters I ever rode as an official enthusiast, just the visit after I braved my fears of going upside down on Kumba. I rode Griffon at Busch Gardens Williamsburg just the month before; and while I slightly prefer Griffon due to its great location along the Rhine coupled with more airtime, SheiKra is still a very good ride. SheiKra’s iconic first drop never ceases to thrill me, giving quite a lot of good floater air; the rise up into the Immelmann and swoop around into the mid-course is certainly an exciting yet more relaxed manuever; and the mid-course brake run provides a nice pause just before that great second drop into the tunnel. From the lift hill, my eyes were constantly on the humongous structure of RMC Gwazi, watching for any sort of movement or maybe that photographed purple track from a few weeks ago. I pointed out to my best friend (who was at the park with me, also riding SheiKra) that “There’s RMC Gwazi,” and it turns out that a coaster enthusiast from New Jersey was sitting right next to me. We struck up a conversation about Rocky Mountain Construction during the lift hill, and on the final brake run we began discussing Intamin — interestingly enough, he was a ride operator for Kingda Ka so this guy mentioned quite a bit about the unreliability of their creations — but, I’m getting ahead of myself. After the tunnel dive, the train soars right over the Zambia Smokehouse — a place I’d had meals at during a few of my many Busch Gardens Tampa visits when I used to live in the area — and hits the splashdown. I may or may not have gotten hit by a few droplets of water at this time. After a large rise, the train spiraled into the final helix. It was here that I caught a distinct view of RMC Gwazi’s purple track with my own eyes, albeit for a split second as we hit the final brake run. SheiKra is definitely the 3rd best coaster at Busch Gardens Tampa, merely behind the sheer greatness of Kumba and Montu but ahead of Cheetah Hunt, Scorpion, Cobra’s Curse and Sand Serpent. It is a thrilling ride with some great views and good floater airtime. It’s definitely worth your time, if you happen to be at Busch Gardens Tampa.

    First Drop Comfort Fun Too short

    I love Sheikra! My current fav dive machine ! (although soon to ride Valkyria so we'll see ;p) The views you get are awesome, you feel super high up and the first drop seems to hang you there for ages before it drops you ! Awesome! So smooth the whole way round! I love the splash down, especially when on one of the wing seats, feels like your feet will touch the water! :) The splash down is also awesome off ride if you want to cool off and get soaked ! Like all dive machines, just wish it was a bit longer!
