Sheikra Floorless Train Unveiling

Event Details
Members of the American Coaster Enthusiasts were invited out to Busch Gardens Tampa to participate in the annual High School Journalism Day. A day in which local high school students are invited to the park to experience being a part of the working media. Part of the days activities is to unveil a new train setup on one of the parks main attractions SheiKra. The park has decided to upgrade this roller coaster with floorless versions of its trains. The ride will be switched over to foorless in the coming months but this is the first of the five to be switched. We enjoyed about an hour of exclusive ride time on SheiKra and then we were invited along with the media for the trains official unveiling. Lots of photos and many gave interviews as this was one of the reasons the park asked enthusiasts to join in the days activities. Always great to get ride time on SheiKra and even better to be at a Media Event for the official unveiling. Below are lots of close ups of the new floorless SheiKra train and some photos of the announcement.
