Event Details
Today I was invited to Busch Gardens in Tampa, Florida to be an extra for a Travel Channel filming for an upcoming show. The new show being aired later this year is called Bert The Conqueror a show about a guy pushing his fears on some of the latest thrill rides and roller coasters from around the USA. Around 20 members of the American Coaster Enthusiasts arrived at the park to be extras on Sheikra a dive coaster built by B&M. We arrived for an 8:00 am check in and sign the usual photo releases for being an actor/extra. We were then escorted into the park and onto location at Sheikra. We rode the ride 5 or 6 times during various filmings with on ride video and off ride video being done. We also did various activities around the ride with Bert chants and lots of cheering. After the filmings several members provided candid interviews with various shots from around Sheikra. The filming was a great time, we got lots of rides and generally had a real fun time. Below are some photos from the filming showing Sheikra, Bert and some various other shots.
