SheiKra is a diving roller coaster located at Busch Gardens Tampa in Tampa, Florida, USA. Built by Bolliger & Mabillard, SheiKra was the first Dive Coaster in North America as well as world's tallest and fastest. In 2007, two years after it opened, SheiKra was converted into a floorless roller coaster.
The name "SheiKra" is derived from a Shikra, a hawk that is known to dive straight down for its prey.
