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.
