Busch Gardens Europe Gives A Sneak Peek of Griffon To News Media
World's Tallest, Floorless Dive Coaster
Griffon, the world's tallest, floorless dive coaster offered American Coaster Enthusiasts and members of the media a sneak peek today at the European-themed adventure park.
Thrill seekers everywhere have been counting down to May 25 – Griffon's public opening. Busch Gardens Europe's latest steel marvel drops its riders 205 feet, 90 degrees straight down, at speeds as fast as 75 mph. Griffon features several one-of-a-kind elements including floorless coaster trains with stadium-style seating. Each coaster train is comprised of three rows of ten seats, and the outer seats extend away from the track. Griffon's divers also endure two Immelmann loops – a coaster move known for its twisted loop.
