Busch Gardens AfricaWhen I first got into riding coasters in 1998 and I saw pictures of Kumba and Montu at Busch Gardens in Tampa, I always wanted to go! My road trip in 2004 began with me thinking about driving all the way down there - mainly to hit Busch Gardens. Montu, and especially Kumba are so well known in the coaster world, they were right at the top of my list of coasters to ride before I die! Well even with all this anticipation, neither one let me down.
To fuel my desire even further is SheiKra, the new B&M Dive Machine (vertical drop) coaster that opened at the start of this season. I'd ridden Oblivion in the UK in June and really liked it, SheiKra looked even better! Again, it did not disappoint.
