Do you love roller coasters?
NO, I mean REALLY love roller coasters?!

After 600 gallons of paint and 7,000 man hours, Busch Gardens Tampa’s SheiKra reopens on Saturday, Feb. 16.
Painting SheiKra is a BIG job. Want to know how big? Check out this blog post with a Q&A from a Busch Gardens insider.
Most of us take on painting projects at our homes at some point of another. We’ll spend hours debating over paint swatches and use yards of masking tape to avoid painting the floor or ceiling.
There’s no doubt that repainting the kitchen is an exhausting task, but what about painting a roller coaster the size of SheiKra?
Bill Rothenberger, Rides Maintenance Manager at Busch Gardens, was able to crunch some numbers for what it takes to complete this mammoth task.
SheiKra is one of the most popular rides at Busch Gardens. The “floorless” cars give riders a breathtaking view of their journey 200 feet up, then 90 degrees straight down. Starting January 7, SheiKra will be closed to get a fresh coat of paint.

Now that they’re a little bit older, wouldn’t you love to see the same sparkle of wonder in their eyes?
Five words for a blow-their-red-and-green-socks-off celebration?

Physics Day has been part of Busch Gardens for over a decade. Some Busch Gardens Education Staff members remember coming to Physics Day- as middle school students almost 20 years ago!
Now they find themselves in the unique position of reliving that experience from a different perspective- by sharing hands-on experiments with the newest generation of physicists.
