B&M Dive Coaster inspired by SheiKra and Griffon.

The first B&M Dive Coaster was built in 1998, and is known as Oblivion. Situated at Alton Towers Resort, Farley, Oblivion stands at 20m (65 feet) and has a drop of 55m (180 feet). The ride is located in the X-Sector of the park, along with the relocated ride, Enterprise. The ride was cloned and flipped for Janfusun Fancyworld in Taiwan.

The first inverting dive coaster, SheiKra, was built 7 years later at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, Florida, also known as Busch Gardens Africa, or the more racist name: Busch Gardens: The Dark Continent. The ride, like the one shown in this package, features an Immelmann loop, where the trains navigate a half loop and then a flip to turn the train upright. The ride also features a 'splashdown', a section of track that runs through a concrete channel in a pool of water. For this effect, the last car has scoops attached which channel the water upwards. The only part of the trains that make contact with the water are the scoops. The majority of the ride inside the package is heavily inspired by SheiKra.

The second inverting Dive Coaster, Griffon, was opened at sister park Busch Gardens Williamsburg, Virginia, also known as Busch Gardens Europe or Busch Gardens: The Old Country. The ride features two inversions - two Immelmann loops, separated by the mid-course brake run, a section of brakes used for multi-train operation. The ride also features a splashdown. The section of this ride inspired by Griffon is the top and the ride trains, the main feature of the latter being the fact that they are floorless.

The ride in this package is 219 feet tall, and features one inversion and a splashdown. The ride trains (of which there are 5) have 3 rows of 10, for a train capacity of 30 people, and a theoretical maximum capacity of 150 people riding at any given point.

Have yourself a Merry Christmas!
