Sheikra Questions

2 little questions

1) What is the height of the second drop on Sheikra?

2) Is there a front row queue for it? just wondering because there isnt on oblivion, the ride ops just put you wherever.

Cheers.

The second drop is 138 ft with a 90 degree dive.
Im not 100% on this, but i think there is just 1 main queue and you get put where to sit.

Yes.. there is queues for each row, but if a row is full.. you get moved back to the 2nd or 3rd row.. depending on the amount of people.

The second drop isn't 90 degrees.


Pic from RCDB

I dunno what it is exactly, but it looks around 75-80.

^I think you are wrong. 3 things:

1. Where are you getting your info from?
2. Look at the picture. It is nowhere near 90.
3. You are being quite rude.

Hey elmerfudd!

I'll show you my sources if you show me yours! :--D

All those say 81 degrees. Others say 90 but it's definitely not 90 so I'm going by those sources.

ooo noo, 6 degrees out! huge difference!
LMAO.

It IS a huge difference! Fahrenheit and Maverick for example would have 89 degree drops, therefore not making them beyond vertical as they're advertised.

Eurofighters wouldn't be that noticeable from other types of rides that go vertical either.

Mr fudd you are such a silly boy!
