Already a legend with thrill-seekers worldwide, SheiKra’s new design intensifies it’s unique combination of vertical drops, Immelmann loop, underground tunnel and water-feature finale, and further solidifies Busch Gardens’ position as Florida’s thrill-ride leader.

The month-long party concludes with one of the biggest names in the Latin music world, Paulina Rubio, turning up the heat with a pulsating performance on Sunday, April 1 at 4 PM.
