Busch Gardens Tampa Bay is shutting down SheiKra until February 15 to give the ride a fresh coat of paint.
The rest of the park's attractions and roller coasters will remain open during normal operating hours.
SheiKra one of the tallest roller coasters in the United States, opened in 2005. Railing and sections of the floor were removed to increase the ride's thrills in 2007. It features a 200-foot drop at a 90-degree angle and reaches speeds of 70 mph.
