There have been many designs used on the water brake system each utilizing different water volumes and pressures to vary the amount of brake and speed reduction that is applied to each roller coaster installation. In the beginning Sheikra tested several different designs of the water scoops. From round ones, to tall ones and even had a set that were more of a paddle instead of a scoop. Each design produces a different splash effect from sideways, to fan shaped and tall or wide. Sheikra over the years has had several shapes and designs to get the correct amount of brake. These photos show the various funnel shapes and splash patterns as a result all to control the brake effect of the trains.
