BGT has a winner on it hands.

Air Air Air!.... and the hang-over drama gimmick really works wonders.

All in all- she is a powerful beast, rivaling the Hulk!

SheiKra is THE BEST rollercoaster i have EVER been on!!! My advice to get the most fun from it......... get 2 busch gardens half an hour before it opens, RUN YOUR LITTLE STINKIN HEART OUT to SheiKra, bring some whos too scared to ride it, make THEM go back in line a little bit (if they agree to, smart one) so u can ride it twice, and finnally, ride the FRONT on the very edge- 100% KRAZY!!!!! Beleive me., YOU WILL LOVE IT!!!!! Also, when u are in line........ PREPARE TO GET WET!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sheikra is amazing

couple things-construction on the queue and the ride op house is ridiculously under completed-the house is still the construction "paper" (insulation), and part of the queue is plywood that you walk on. The queue was filthy with water bottles and trash. but then you get on the ride-WOW!!! it is the B&M big boy seats, ultra comfy. The lift is steep as hell, and hanging over the drop is amazing-front row is tight because you are right over the edge, back row is fun too because when you are released at the top it flings you over the crest. The seats are stadium style, so the back is higher then the front, and they are floorless with a floor (not sure if the other dive machines are big boys, stadium, or floorless with a floor). The ride is ultra smooth-not in terms of head banging (obviously it is new so it would and should be smooth) but moreso the transition from the drop to the immelmann is nice and slow, the train just smoothly makes it through without going too fast or slow. They need a tent on the queue though, because you can see parts on the track where a future awning will go, but in the meantime that water feature will get you soaked!!!!!

Also, I think that it has some magnetic brakes on it, it seemed like the brakes slowing down the ride before it stopped on the brake run outside of the station were magnetic like

Hey Rollacoasta dude, I hope you weren't talking about line jumping...

I hate line jumpers, and I'm sure many other people share the sentiment
