Get a First Look at the Griffon in Action
BGEscape.com has posted the first live video of Griffon in action. Watch the test video below set to Foo Fighters. The ride dummies seem to be enjoying it:
Griffon will be only the second dive coaster in the U.S. It will feature a 205 foot (twenty stories) drop at a 90 degree angle, two inversions (loops), and a water splash section. It will be the first dive coaster to feature floorless trains. I have to say that Griffon’s trains look much wider than SheiKra’s. Griffon will have riders arranged 10 across instead of SheiKra’s eight.
Since Busch is already testing they should definetly hit their mark of opening Griffon in Late Spring. There’s still some work to be done as you can see the water splash is empty and there’s a lot of landscaping to finish up. Thanks to BGEscape.com for the video. I’m sure every coaster enthusiast in the East is already making travel plans to get to Williamsburg this summer.
