Sheikra is an extreme thrill ride and draws in tourist and holiday makers from world wide. Standing at a whopping 200 feet tall the Sheikra Roller Coaster is ruthless and yet at the same time absolutely amazing. An experience not to be missed out on! Combining vertical drops and loops with a splash in the water is genius and has proven very popular. Taking you up the full 200 feet, Sheikra then pauses at the top whilst tipping you into position. Hold on to your stomachs as Sheikra drops you down spiralling and looping at speeds of up to 70 mph. If that wasn’t enough then wait until it plunges through the underground tunnel and crashes through the water to finish. There are restrictions for heights on the Sheikra Roller Coaster. these are in place purely for safety reasons. You would have to be taller than 1.3 metres to ride the Sheikra.

The beautiful Stanley Falls Flume is the perfect family water  ride. Classed as only an average thrill ride it is more family orientated than some of the larger and more extreme thrill rides. Travelling in a water carriage though the serenity and natural beauty of the jungle as you wind along the current is a great family experience. You will get wet, that’s a guarantee! But what better way to do it than to plunge a 40 foot descent through the waters. Stanley Falls Flume does have a height restriction too. Having to be just over one metre in height to ride the flume. This allows for younger riders, but is not suitable for infants.
