New Dive Coaster Opening At Busch Gardens Europe
Busch Gardens Europe has started construction on their fifth coaster, Griffon. Griffon, opening in Spring of 2007, will be the world's largest Dive Coaster. Dive coasters are coasters that start with a standard lift hill followed by a brief pause at the top of the hill, only to be followed by a 90 degree drop and an arsenal of other elements. Griffon will feature over 3,100 feet of track and will boast speeds reaching 71 mph. The unique trains on the coasters will be made up of three rows with ten seats per row. Busch Gardens Europe is known for their beautiful landscaping, detailed European theming, and world renowned coasters.
