    Griffon is the next generation of the SheiKra dive coaster that opened in Tampa a few years back.

    The big differences as I understand it are that SheiKra sat 8 across vs. 10 for Griffen (resulting in two more seats on each row that have nothing below them. Also, Griffen is a little taller I think.

    The big difference, though, is that the Griffen is floorless, where SheiKra had a floor.

    But, the general style of the ride is the same.
    Ah! That sounds pretty cool. Busch Gardens Tampa is great! I never waited in line.

      I usually go to Busch Gardens or other parks on vacation in October, when school is back in and the parks are pretty empty. Unfortunately, this year we are gong in summer when things will be much more crowded.

        I don't know though about being 'suspended'........

        Remember, years ago they had a ride in a circle, where everyone would line up around the edge and the floor would drop out. That kind of 'freaked' me out to be honest.

        Although, when it comes to roller coasters....I get a little bit braver.

The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

          My wife isn't sure about this coaster for two reasons. First, it will not have been open for very long when we go. Second, she said if she rode it, she probably wouldn't get in one of the three seats on the sides that have nothing below them.
